Colorado pot taxes: Recreational sales for January 2015 strongest yet

Colorado pot businesses sold a record amount of marijuana in January, resulting in an excise tax of $2.3 million designated for public schools, state officials said Wednesday.

The numbers, reported by the Colorado Department of Revenue, show that January’s school-designated pot excise tax is more than 10 times the amount in January 2014, when the state first collected the tax on wholesale marijuana transfers.

From December to January, the school tax sum jumped about 21 percent, from $1.9 million to $2.3 million. In January 2014, the state collected $195,318 in taxes allotted for school construction capital.

In total, the amount of taxes, licenses and fees stemming from medical and recreational marijuana sales amounts to $8.8 million this January.

Brighton residents who are growing marijuana in their homes need to ensure that their plants are at least two feet lower than the ceiling, according to one of the new indoor cultivation regulations adopted by City Council.

The state has regulations for home grows per Amendment 64, but Brighton officials localized those rules by imposing limits on grow room sizes, as well as additional safety requirements like not allowing the plants or storage material to reach the ceiling and risk fire hazards with grow lights.
