Colorado Marijuana Evolution
Colorado has been the guinea pig for the nation, and has spearheaded the way for legalization in this country. Residents and tourists alike have reaped the benefits since the inception of Amendment 64 back in 2012, and retail recreational shops opening doors on January 1st, 2014. Although most attention wasn’t drawn to Colorado before then, the state has had its ups and downs for quite some time.
Prohibition of marijuana in the country started back in 1911, with Colorado making the use and cultivation of marijuana a misdemeanor in 1917. After years of debate the decriminalization started in 1975, slowly leading us to where we are today. After the passing of medical marijuana in 2000 and finally recreational in 2012, Colorado has seen a huge influx of tax revenue in the state ($67,594,323 in the first year alone) with many wondering, where does the money go? While each county can determine their own tax amounts, there are 3 different taxes that each county gains revenue from. A set 2.9% sales tax, a “special sales tax on revenue”, and an excise tax all contribute to funding in multiple different ways.
After Pueblo adopted the laws of amendment 64 in 2013, the debate began as to where the money shall be placed. Different departments such as the Pueblo city county health department of operations, Pueblo animal services operations, Pueblo county community services advisory commission, several scholarships and research on medical marijuana at Colorado State University-Pueblo have all seen return from the counties sales from Pueblo recreational dispensaries. As the state continues to reap the benefits of medical and recreational marijuana sales, the question lingers… has it been worth it?
In 2017 alone, Colorado pulled in $1.51 billion dollars is sales from medical and recreational marijuana, with over $240 million of that going to the state. Since the beginning of recreational sales in the state, Colorado has now seen over a half a billion dollars in taxes and fees. With numbers like this, it’s hard not to see the obvious gain. Weather an entrepreneur, a CO native or other states looking to Colorado as an example, it’s safe to say we’ve been the proving ground and will continue to be so in the years to come.
