“What do you mean the state has budget troubles? What about all the tax money from marijuana? Wasn’t that supposed to solve everything?”
As a nonprofit devoted to educating Coloradans on the state’s unique fiscal challenges, we get that question almost every time now. It doesn’t matter what group we’re talking to about the state budget or which community in Colorado we’re visiting.

Two Boulder marijuana businesses stand accused of violating the city’s ban on pot advertising because they had booths at Out Boulder’s Pridefest celebration last month.
The stores didn’t distribute marijuana at the booths, but they did feature large signs featuring the names of the businesses, The Farm and Terrapin Care Station.
Boulder City Attorney Tom Carr said the large signs go well beyond the “purely incidental” advertising related to sponsorship that is […]

Made from recycled milk jugs!
R2 Containers are the first containers manufactured specifically for the cannabis industry that are made from recycled milk jug resin. The resin used to make these containers is FDA-approved for packaging both medicine and food.
R2 Containers are eco-friendly, created from high density polyethylene (HDPE-2). Manufactured in the U.S. and BPA-free, this resin meets stringent purity standards through a patented cleaning process that eliminates all contaminants without exposing the resin to any chemical treatments of processes.
The resin also meets strict sustainability standards and, according to EPA data, it accounts for far less environmental impact than virgin resin used in other containers. Production of recycled resin uses 90% less energy and emits 78% less greenhouse gases than virgin resin.
There you have it!
