DE BEQUE, Colo. (KKCO) - The small town of De Beque is facing some big decisions this November.
Voters there will have two ballot measures that deal with medical marijuana.
The first is called 2A. If passed, it would allow medical marijuana dispensaries to operate in De Beque.
Ballot measure 2B will then create an occupation tax of $5 for each sales transaction by any dispensary within the town.
That alone is estimated to raise $50,000 in tax revenue within the first fiscal year.
According to De Beque's Mayor, the town of nearly 500 could really use the money, but not everyone agrees.
If 2A and 2B are passed, they would become effective Jan. 1, 2011.
