It looks to me like sales of non-marijuana items in recreational stores have risen from 2.5 percent in January to 6.5 percent in May.
Hmm. Does that mean stores are “bundling” normally taxable marijuana with free-of-10%-tax vaporizers or something? For instance, buy an untaxed vaporizer, get your marijuana free as part of the vaporizer price? I have no idea, but there is an incentive to do that — if taxpayers think that works. As an old friend from the Joint Committee staff used to put it, the job of the tax lawyer is to turn This into That.
Folks in Colorado know a lot more than I do.
