No Over Taxation
Marijuana activists asked a judge on Friday to temporarily prevent the state from collecting specific “marijuana taxes” on pot sales because they incriminate consumers and industry employees under federal law.
Marijuana giveaways that sparked an unusual campaign finance report in Colorado have been given a value. The joints were worth $1,250, paid for by a lawyer funding the opposition campaign.
A watchdog group says the free joints handed out by opponents of taxes on recreational pot must be reported as campaign contributions.
