Marijuana is making Colorado so much money the state may have to give some of its $50 million windfall to taxpayers

Reports: Daily Mail

Colorado has generated so much money from recreational pot taxes that the state is bound by law to pass some of the tax money directly on to residents.

Voters legalized marijuana in 2012 on the understanding that revenue raised would go to schools, but a 1992 voter-approved constitutional amendment means some of the $50 million gathered in taxes in the first year of legalized pot must be given to taxpayers as a rebate.
