DENVER — Colorado voters split on taxes Tuesday, giving a resounding yes to a tax on retail marijuana.
“Colorado is demonstrating to the rest of the nation that it is possible to end marijuana prohibition and successfully regulate marijuana like alcohol,” said Mason Tvert, spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project, which supported Proposition AA and was the largest financial backer of the Amendment 64 campaign in 2012. “It is only a matter of time before voters and
lawmakers in other states recognize the benefits and adopt similar policies.”
