Legal pot, in-state tourism can boost economy
He talked about Colorado legalizing marijuana, putting millions back into the economy. "It's an opportunity for us to get ahead of the curve. Colorado's tourism is up 32 percent," Apodaca said. "We talked to the folks up north. They drive up, buy
and come back. More importantly, 32,000 jobs, $200 million in tax revenue."
"If we just promoted ourselves to ourselves, and we get half those families half the time in New Mexico, it would be a $400 to $500 million launch to our economy."
