Colorado is going to make bank for all that legal pot they’re selling

  • yeah! According to new statistics, the state of Colorado is likely to make major bank from the sale of marijuana. Based on the first budget report on the issue, the state will likely make $184 million in tax revenue from pot alone over the next 18 months, and the industry itself is projected to earn $610 million in revenue in that period.
  • but … Don’t get too excited, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said on Friday during a meeting with governors from other states. “When governors have asked me, and several have, I say that we don’t have the facts,” Hickenlooper explained. “We don’t know what the unintended consequences are going to be and we’re going to regulate it every way we can. What I do is urge caution.”

We have hundreds of young black men, black boys, being locked up, for simple possession of a couple bags of marijuana. We don’t want to be proud of the wrong kind of thing here. We need to stop that kind of injustice from happening.
D.C. City Council member Marion Barry • Discussing the city’s renewed push to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, something driven largely in part by the high disparity of arrests between black and white D.C. residents. In 2010, blacks were eight times more likely to be arrested as whites, according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

It is economically and socially just to tax it. We can eliminate some of the criminal nature that surrounds the drug and obtain revenue from it.
New York City Comptroller (and mayoral candidate) John Liu • Suggesting that the city decriminalize marijuana for recreational use, tax it, and use the legalization as a revenue-generating tool. The plan would have to be approved by state legislators, but that’s certainly a nice big talker for Liu’s campaign—something he announced exclusively to the Associated Press. The Sanjay Gupta effect continues.

An investigative report that matters: Apparently 17 million pounds of marijuana has been confiscated by the U.S. Border Patrol between January 2005 and October 2011, the Center for Investigative Reporting reports. The lede on the ABC News story on the matter? “If you’ve always wanted to roll a spliff the size of the Washington Monument, the Border Patrol may be able to help.” I, for one, salute the Washington Marijuanament.
