Voting for Recreational Use of Marijuana

It’s been going around that Colorado residents will be asked to vote on whether the recreational use of marijuana should be legalized.  The voting will take place on a November ballot.  There are currently 16 states and the nation’s capital that already allow marijuana use for medical purposes.  If this is approved by voters, it would legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana or up to six plants for cultivation (said Mason Tvert, co-founder of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol).  If this is something that is legalized, I wonder how big the spike in Colorado’s population will be!  Do you think it should be legalized?  Do you think it will help revenue wise for the state?  I wonder what the tax would be on an ounce of marijuana!
