}}{{tnr}}{{TOCnestright}}The '''Colorado Marijuana Sales Tax''', also known as [http://www.leg.state.co.us/clics/clics2013a/csl.nsf/fsbillcont/31D153749B49700187257B2F00580E15?Open&file=1318_01.pdf HB 1318], will appear as a {{lrssfull}} on the [[Colorado 2013 ballot measures|ballot]] in [[Colorado]] for the general election on [[BC2013#November|November 5, 2013]]. If passed, the measure, which is sponsored by [[Jonathan Singer|Rep. Jonathan Singer]] (D-11), would implement a 10% sales tax. This is in addition to the standard 2.9% state sales tax and any local taxes that may apply. The revenue would be used to fund the regulation and monitoring of the marijuana retail business. Another measure, the [[Colorado Marijuana Excise Tax, HB 1318 (2013)|Colorado Marijuana Excise Tax]], is also being sent to the [[BC2013#November|November]] ballot as a result HB 1318's passage. However, this will appear as a separate measure entirely from that of the excise tax.<ref name=pot>[http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/colorado-senate-passes-house-bill-1318s-25-marijuana-sales-tax ''TheDenverChannel.com'', "Colorado Lawmakers approve House Bill 1318's 25 percent marijuana tax," May 8, 2013]</ref>
