In Colorado, legalized recreational and medical pot in Colorado hit $1.3 billion in sales last year, which turns out to be good news for budget-strapped cities and even college kids. In the Denver suburb of Edgewater, taxes collected from the sale of pot has brought in enough money to pave 12 miles of streets and replace the old city hall with a new $10 million complex that will include a police station and library to be finished by 2018. About a 110 miles south of Denver, Pueblo County is now offering college kids pot-funded scholarships, a first in American history. According to a CBS News poll, 61 percent of Americans now think marijuana should be legal, a new high.
