There can be little doubt that Colorado’s Marijuana proponents sold voters (circa 2012 Colorado ballot – Amendment 64) on the idea that Colorado would collect immense Sales Tax revenue (millions) on the Sale of Marijuana – if Colorado voters would just agree to “vote to make it legal…”
The fact is…the truth is… NOTHING like the magnitude Pot proponents were alleging about Sales Taxes collected – has come to pass in Colorado, nor Eagle County in particular…now (2) years later.
Keep in mind these Eagle County “Pot Shops” run as a “Cash Business” because (under current Federal Law) a FDIC insured Bank – cannot legally give/issue these Pot businesses neither a Credit Card machine nor a legitimate Bank Account – for fear of loosing their banks FDIC Insurance – under current Federal Law.
Think things can’t get any worse about “Marijuana Taxes” in Colorado?
Wrong. “Pro-Pot” Attorney Rob Corry has filed his Lawsuit in Denver District Court to “block Marijuana Taxes in Colorado” – claiming collection of those taxes on the sale of Marijuana in Colorado – violates the U.S. Constitution.
