Taxes On Recreational Pot Sales Could Top 35 Percent

 :lol:


snip~
The taxes on recreational marijuana might go a lot higher than first thought. Smokers buying at shops in Denver may pay up to 35 percent in taxes.

Colorado voters will be asked to approve two state taxes totaling 25 percent on all retail marijuana sales in the November election. They may be asked to approve an additional city tax for Denver.

I'll bet money that the pot smokers start going back to the dealers if this measure passes.

I warned this would happen if the states got their way, and 35% is just the beginning, it'll be 200%+ within a decade.
