Colorado Marijuana Activists File Lawsuit Over Special Taxes Could End All Medical and Recreational Pot Sales


A Colorado lawsuit filed this past June contends that special taxes placed on recreational marijuana sales are illegal and unconstitutional. Today, the group filing the lawsuit, No Over Taxation, has a hearing in the case. Cannabis advocates encouraging attendance contend that should the suit be successful, it could spell the end for marijuana licensing and registration regulations statewide.
Plaintiffs in the suit include marijuana activist Kathleen Chippi and Miguel Lopez, founder of the Denver 4/20 rally. Read the full breakdown as well as the official complaint at the Denver Westword.
