Colorado Earns More Tax Dollars From Marijuana Than Booze

So let’s talk about how Colorado is making money hand over fist with their legal marijuana sales.

I mean, serious dollars. 

Just wait until when you can buy marijuana in California.

Let me digress first, however.

The State of Colorado collected nearly $70 million in taxes from marijuana sales in the fiscal year that ended June 30.  That’s almost twice the amount of the $42 million they earned from alcohol taxation.

Never in my life have I thought that weed would outsell booze, even if it’s legal.  To me, this is just crazy.  I can barely comprehend this data.

Colorado legalized marijuana for recreational uses back in 2012.  Recently, they had a tax Holiday on marijuana sales that resulted in about a $20 per ounce savings.  Of course, if I would have known that I’d be buying that shit up and hoarding it.  Hey, gotta save money.  It’s not like you can Google “Marijuana Coupon Codes” and just punch it into WalMart and save cash, if you know what I mean.

Today marks a monumental day for me.  I really like where we are heading with everyone buying weed and not booze.  It’s like we’re making America Great Again!

Thanks for your readership, I’ll be back soon with more updates on the world of drugs, drug testing, and everything else you can think of that a lonely stoner like me would conjure up throughout the day.
