- Vail Daily: The Vail Daily editorial board wrote: "On the subject of pay to play, the town of Eagle is asking voters to impose a “transaction fee” of up to $5 per retail sale. The amount of the fee depends on the amount of pot purchased. Again, if we’re going to have legal, weed, let’s at least tax it enough to pay for regulation and enforcement."
