Pot tax opponents in Colorado report free weed

DENVER (AP) — An organization that gave away free marijuana cigarettes as a way to protest possible taxes in Colorado has filed an unusual campaign finance report, after a watchdog group said the pot qualified as a campaign contribution.

The group No Over Taxation reported Tuesday that the joints were worth a total of $1,250 and were paid for by a lawyer funding its campaign.

The filing came in response to a complaint from Colorado Ethics Watch, which said the tax opposition group failed to disclose where it got the weed or how much it cost.

No Over Taxation gave away the joints at rallies in Denver and Boulder this fall to protest a pending 25 percent tax on retail pot. It says the tax would keep marijuana users in the black market.

The report says the joints were donated by Denver attorney Robert Corry.

Colorado Ethics Watch withdrew its complaint.
