Colo. Politicians Threaten to Repeal Marijuana Legalization If Voters Don't Approve High Taxes posted 05/01/2013, 12:22 AM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Politics/Corruption]
Politicians in Colorado are threatening voters they'll repeal the legalization of marijuana unless they approve an outrageously high 30% tax rate on the sale of the plant.

Via KKTV:
Marijuana legalization may have received more votes from Coloradans than President Obama--who carried the state--but some lawmakers are still mulling over a repeal.

As the debate over how to tax marijuana rages on, sister station KCNC reports that a draft bill floating around the Capitol proposes repealing recreational marijuana if voters don't approve a 15 percent excise tax on retail pot and a 15 percent marijuana sales tax.[...]

Some lawmakers argue that the purpose of legalizing marijuana was to bring more revenue into the state, particularly for education, and that if it's not accomplishing that it shouldn't be legal.
In other words, your freedoms are only permitted so long as they provide the state with revenue.
