Pot helps Colorado budget
says they got $9M from pot cards
Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter is using
$9 million from medical marijuana registrations
to help the state meet a $60 million fiscal emergency.
The state anticipates ending the year with 150,000 applicants for
medical marijuana cards,
up from 41,000 in 2009. A marijuana card costs $90 per year.
Backers of medical marijuana legislation in a number of states and
cities have touted revenue
from possible taxes and other fees as a selling point at a time of
tight fiscal funding.
See, all 50 states could do this -
but it makes God very, very angry
when He looks down and doesn't see enough of His children suffering.
...and you know how He can be when He's angry.
