If you're stocking up for winter, this is the day to do it … 

The only thing better than weed become legal is getting a discount. Granted, the voters of Colorado agreed to pay higher prices in the first place, but a one-day break is a pretty sweet deal. 

Colorado's crazy-ass tax law is forcing the state to suspend taxes on recreational marijuana for one day — September 16. On this blessed Wednesday, the 10% sales tax and 15% excise tax won't be collected. The break would take $20 off the price of a mid-grade ounce of pot, where OZs usually sell for about $200 before tax.

It's money that can go directly toward more important things, like Taco Bell. Mmmmmm … Taco Bell. 

As part of the law, if revenue is higher than the amount that tax payers agreed on, it might have to be refunded to the people. In this case, the pot taxes were projected to raise $70 million in 2014. They actually raised $58 million, but because overall tax collections that year exceeded projections, Colorado must ask voters for permission to keep the money. And to comply with the requirement that the taxes revert to zero, lawmakers settled on a short one-day tax waiver on Sept. 16 — one day after the state's books for the previous fiscal year are made final.

Officials say the day could cost the state $3 million to $4 million. Marijuana won't be completely tax-free that day: A regular 2.9% sales tax still applies, as do medical marijuana taxes and local pot taxes. Colorado voters will decide in November whether to keep the pot taxes. 

We hope they do, because while roughly $8 per person would be sweet, the millions raised for schools and roads is probably a better deal.
