In the first press conference, Connor Birzer said, “We need to let the free market reign, in terms of marijuana, and we need to allow it to flourish here in Kansas as it has in Colorado because our children would benefit from it.”

Well, let’s check that out. Has marijuana been beneficial to children in Colorado, and would it benefit Kansas children as well?

In an article published by mintpressnews.com, it states that Colorado has reached over $50 million in recreational cannabis sales in the MONTH OF JUNE. In addition to that, $25 million were reached in medical sales. The state, in total, has earned over $60 million in tax revenue so far this year. The site also states that these taxes are going towards a good cause:

So the answer is, yes. Colorado children have benefitted from marijuana. Kansas has the opportunity to help the children as well, then. Connor Birzer was right. So, light up Kansans, and get high for the children.
