Want to have pot pay for your kid’s college?

Pueblo, Colorado

Pueblo County, Colorado has established a cannabis-funded college scholarship program for high school seniors there.

Pueblo County Commissioners expect that every qualifying student would receive about $1,000 for college. To qualify, students would have to attend either Pueblo Community College or Colorado State University-Pueblo.

The 2017 funding available totals $475,000, with $4725,000 coming from the marijuana excise tax revenue and the other nearly $50,000 from the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative.
