A ballot proposal to impose an extra 4.3 percent sales tax on medical marijuana in Pueblo appears headed for victory.
Unofficial results reported by the Pueblo Chieftain on Wednesday show more than 18,000 votes in favor and just under 11,000 against.
More than 4,000 mail-in and provisional ballots had not been counted.
The tax also would apply medical to marijuana paraphernalia. Proceeds would help pay for law enforcement associated with pot sales.
The Chieftain reports that the additional tax combined with existing levies would bring the total tax on medical pot and paraphernalia at 12 percent.
The Loveland Reporter-Herald reported Wednesday that a measure barring medical marijuana clinics in Loveland appeared to be winning.
