Reader's View: Legalize marijuana, say goodbye to potholes
I recently spent time traveling the entire state of Colorado, paying little in sales taxes, and I noted that the roads — from Pueblo to Longmont to Estes Park — had few bumps or potholes. In addition, all the streetlights seemed to be lit, there were flowers in each city, and things were just so nice.
Colorado pays for such things with huge taxes from pot distributors. And it works!
Instead of begging crime to relocate here in Duluth, perhaps we could bring in distributors. They were extremely tactful in Colorado. In fact, you couldn't tell their storefronts from others. No one was using.
Let's help our small businesses, state, and city — and no more potholes!
