  1. Look at Colorado, for 2014 not only did they get 75 million in taxes, here’s the rest of the story. Colorado also set a record for 2014, they surpassed all other states for tourism by 13%. That’s right people are traveling to Colorado mile high city from all over the world to get high. There has been a domino effect all over Colorado. Ski resorts that wants shut down for the summer are now opening for people that want to get high in more ways than one and not to be bothered by the police. Property values have also increased due to people moving to Colorado for medical reasons as medical refugees or just to enjoy a toke after work. The rest of the states may start to look at this and want a piece of the pie.Here is a link to the proof 40 billion a year to Tennessee 16 billion:
