Eh, all eyes will be on them, so better for them to go a bit overboard with the budget and make sure they do it right than risk embarrassment and setting the recreational marijuana movement back.

ski9600: MFAWG: So it's creating jobs?

I seems like it would've created a lot of specialized jobs for people with Biology and other science degrees, but no they'll just tax the shiat out of it so everyone has to grow their own and the tax revenue won't support all of these inspectors/administrators so taxpayers lose again.


Maybe it's just the plant scientist in me, but I cannot WAIT to get my hands on a Cannabis Plant Breeding program. Everything about it makes my pants tight and my nose water. There's science to be done in a legalized pain reliever, genetics, and chemistry.

jjorsett: You know that fantasy you had that marijuana taxes would pay for things like...


I didn't have that fantasy and neither did a single pot smoker I know in Colorado. What we have is a large enough coalition that stood up to the stupidity of the Federal War On Drugs and legalized marijuana.

I have six beautiful ladies growing in my backyard. It pisses off my Tea Party neighbor, the prison guard, to no end. He's also in favor of small gubment and freedom!

Somaticasual: You know what, if that's the tradeoff needed to show the rest of the US that MJ should be a new industry, bring on the inspectors. Most industries have some sort of oversight, so it's only fair marijuana is held to the same level of agricultural standards.


I WANT that job

Pray 4 Mojo: That's because the oil and gas companies self regulate.


This might be the best comment ever.

vartian: "It is imperative that city officials demonstrate they are not using the potential of a new revenue source to go on a shopping spree in order to backfill city budgets."

Why? Isn't this exactly why you would want a recreational, lucrative product that can sustain a very high tax rate? Pay for schools, roads, police...whatever, fill the coffers.


Roads, huh? Would that go toward fixing pot holes?

When there's gas dealers who grow their own stuff and don't overcharge then we'll talk.

Luckily, the massive numbers of conservatives in Colorado will fight this tax increase no matter what. Right? Right?
