Vote Yes on 300 and 301
Every year, Colorado Springs loses out on millions in tax dollars to Denver, Pueblo, and Manitou. It’s time to stand up to keep our tax dollars local – helping solve our biggest community challenges.
When you receive your ballot this October, vote YES on 300 and 301 to end the prohibition of recreational cannabis sales and to bring our tax dollars home.
Reclaiming what is ours
Estimated revenue lost over the last 10 years by prohibiting sales inside Colorado Springs.
The use of recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado Springs. What is not allowed is the sale of recreational marijuana. Every day, people in Colorado Springs drive to neighboring cities, purchase their marijuana, and bring it back to Colorado Springs to use. This means every year 10 to 15 million dollars of tax revenue that can improve our quality of life is lost to Denver, Manitou Springs, and Pueblo.
Right now, tax dollars that should be improving our community are fixing roads and bridges in Manitou Springs. Vote YES on 300 and 301 to put Colorado Springs first and make sure our tax dollars are working to solve the challenges in Colorado Springs…not Denver, Pueblo, and Manitou Springs.
Vote YES on 300 and 301
Allowing the sale of recreational marijuana will repatriate 10 to 15 million dollars annually to help solve some of Colorado Springs biggest challenges. As a citizen led effort, we demand accountability from our government. To ensure these dollars are spent as promised, the City will be required to install a citizen’s oversight committee that ensures your tax dollars are spent as promised. Your support of this issue means:
Vote YES on 300 & 301 to support our veterans
Colorado Springs is home to over 80,000 veterans, many of whom face a hidden battle at home with PTSD. These tax dollars will be directed towards services that help our American heroes receive the treatment and care they deserve.
Vote YES on 300 & 301 to expand mental health programs
Colorado Springs is in the middle of a mental health crisis. In 2021 El Paso County led the state in suicides. After voter approval, these tax dollars will expand mental health services and programming in our city.
Vote YES on 300 & 301 to improve Public Safety
It's no secret that Colorado Springs is growing quickly and we are now facing many of the challenges of a large community. These tax dollars will better equip our first responders to respond to the challenges of our growing neighborhoods and downtown.
