Montrose is receiving marijuana funding for a new mental health facility.

According to the Summit Daily, both Montrose and Frisco will be splitting $2 million in marijuana tax dollars for new mental health facilities. A four-bed crisis stabilization unit will apparently be built in Montrose with the money. A four to six bed walk-in crisis unit will be built in Frisco.

This is just the latest example of how Colorado's marijuana's tax dollars are being put to good use.

By now,  it sounds like a broken record. Regardless of how you feel about recreational pot, it's here to stay, it's big business, and there are millions of tax dollars to be had. Western Colorado communities could be greatly improved by the use of marijuana tax dollars, and the sooner these communities say yes, the sooner those improvements can be made.
