Marijuana Revenue

Medical and recreational marijuana did not solve the school funding problem. The tax dollars generated from marijuana sales collect into a statewide pool that is distributed to school districts through a grant application process called the BEST Grant. However, this grant program prioritizes rural school district’s in non-urban areas. Because of the structure of the BEST Grant program, Districts like D11 will hardly see any of the revenues generated from marijuana sales.
