DENVER—This November, Colorado voters will decide whether to approve an additional 10 percent state sales tax and a new excise tax of up to 15 percent of retail marijuana sales with up to $40 million each year going to K-12 schools in the state. During the 2012 election, a majority of Coloradans voted in favor of Amendment 64 to regulate and tax marijuana, and it is now a part of our State Constitution. Under the Taxpayers Bill of Rights, however, voters must now specifically approve the additional sales tax and creation of the new excise tax.
