Legalizing Pot in Colorado is Huge Economic Win for Schools
Colorado's decision to legalize marijuana is looking like a big economic winner these days as the schools there will be getting an extra $300 million thanks to the extra tax revenue.
According to the Denver Post, the huge cash windfall will provide 27 school districts – many in rural areas – with a much needed boost.
Many schools will be starting up construction projects, which, of course, will create new jobs.
New schools and new jobs sounds like a win for the Rocky Mountain High state.
Last year, Fortune magazine reported that Colorado's marijuana sales topped $1 billion. And this doesn't even count the tax on Doritos Cool Ranch!
