ThinkStock[/caption]The powers that be in Denver want to double their money. No, they aren't being greedy, they want to do it for a good reason.

They want to raise taxes on the sale of marijuana. The reason they want to do this is to help out Denver's Housing Authority. They created a partnership and want to spend around 100 million dollars over five years on affordable housing.

I for one, am all for raising taxes on marijuana. I don't see how it is a bad thing. If it helps get people who need housing to into their own place, I say go for it.

Of course, you are gonna have some of those people who won't like it. But you know that they are still going to pay the raise in taxes anyway.

How do you feel about the proposed raise on taxes for marijuana sales? Do you think that it is a good idea or bad?
