The Colorado Marijuana Tax Revenue to Establish Housing for Disabled Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in Colorado as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have used $10 million annually from retail marijuana sales tax revenues to fund permanent housing for disabled citizens with brain disorders. It would have also created a board to oversee the use of the money and required that such permanent housing be staffed by individuals who are certified in brain injury care. The official title given to this measure by the Ballot Title Setting Board was, "An amendment to the Colorado constitution concerning state funding for permanent housing for disabled citizens with brain disorders and, in connection therewith, requiring the state to use ten million dollars annually from retail marijuana sales tax revenues to provide permanent housing for Colorado citizens who are disabled by brain disorders; creating a board to oversee the use of the grant moneys; and requiring that such permanent housing be staffed by individuals who are certified in brain injury care."[1][2]

The measure would have amended the Colorado Constitution by adding Article XXX.[1]
