Nevada lawmakers take Colorado marijuana tour
Published on Apr 25, 2015
Lawmakers allover the United States are talking about the marijuana legalization expiriment in Colorado because it's been over a year, and not only is tax revenue high, but the sky isn't falling. Nevada was first to legalize gambling and prostitution, but are being more cautious in considering marijuana while they take tours of Colorado's programs. Nevada is looking for more tax funds to help public education, but are worried too much tax on marijuana sales will keep buyers in the black market.
With smiles, selfies and a few nervous chuckles, a group of Nevada legislators and policymakers got a first-hand look at Colorado's fast-growing legal marijuana industry this weekend, coming face-to-face with thousands of green growing plants.
