The Colorado Marijuana Excise Tax, also known as HB 1318, will appear as a legislatively-referred state statute on the ballot in Colorado for the general election on November 5, 2013. If passed, the measure, which is sponsored by Rep. Jonathan Singer (D-11), would implement a 15% excise tax on all marijuana sales in the state. The revenue would be used to fund the construction of schools. Another measure, the Colorado Marijuana Sales Tax, is also being sent to the November ballot as a result HB 1318's passage. However, this will appear as a separate measure entirely from that of the excise tax.[1]
