If Pennsylvania Legalizes Cannabis, State Would Garner over $200 Million in Annual Taxes

If Pennsylvania legalizes cannabis in a manner similar to Colorado, the state would garner over $200 million in new taxes every year.

This is according to the state’s Auditor General Eugene DePasquale, who held a press conference to discuss the financial benefits of legalization.

According to DePasquale, the $200 million projection is based on the $129 million a year Colorado is currently bringing in; DePasquale notes that Colorado has a population of less than half that of Pennsylvania.
