Colorado's decision to legalize marijuana is looking like a big economic winner these days as the schools there will be getting an extra $300 million thanks to the extra tax revenue.

According to the Denver Post, the huge cash windfall will provide 27 school districts – many in rural areas –  with a much needed boost.

Many schools will be starting up construction projects, which, of course, will create new jobs.

New schools and new jobs sounds like a win for the Rocky Mountain High state.


Last year, Fortune magazine reported that Colorado's marijuana sales topped $1 billion. And this doesn't even count the tax on Doritos Cool Ranch!
