Stop the Proposal to Repeal Amendment 64
There are members of the state legislature poised to make Amendment 64's fate dependent upon a vote on a 15 percent special sales tax on non-medical marijuana -- a tax rate higher than is needed to fund regulation of the system. They are so hungry for tax dollars, they are considering making the following threat to the people of Colorado:
Vote for our 15% tax or Amendment 64 might be repealed entirely.
We have provided members of the legislature with a poll showing that 77% of Coloradans would support a 10% sales tax on marijuana. We also informed members that we support a 10% sales tax and would advocate in favor of it. Any member of the legislature who supports the 15% sales tax proposal with the threat of repeal is simply extorting the voters for a higher tax. This is wrong.
Please fill out the form below to tell your representatives in the legislature that you will not stand for this. Let them know you want a clean tax measure on the ballot.
