Sunday 1A Podcast: Where did all of Colorado’s marijuana money go?

On Jan. 1, 2014, Colorado became the first U.S. state to allow legal recreational marijuana sales. It was sold to voters as a way to fix up crumbling schools, but that’s only the start of where the hundreds of millions of tax dollars has gone. With the help of Anna Staver and John Aguilar, Denver Post reporters David Migoya and Jon Murray investigated how that money has been spent at the local and state levels and just how much of it has gone toward fixing schools. Migoya and Murray discuss their reporting and examine how marijuana money has affected communities across Colorado in this podcast.
