Glenwood Springs pot tax votes could reopen detox center talks

Glenwood Springs voters will decide two city marijuana tax questions in the April 4 municipal election.

And, although no decisions have been made about how the hundreds of thousands of dollars in anticipated new tax revenues would be spent if voters approve the measures, it could reopen talks about establishing a detox center in Glenwood Springs or elsewhere in the region.

One ballot question approved by City Council at the special meeting Thursday night will ask for a 5 percent tax on the retail sales side of marijuana transactions, with the flexibility in future years to increase the tax to as much as 15 percent. The other question seeks to impose a 5 percent excise tax on wholesale transfers of marijuana products from manufacturing facilities to retail stores.
