Seven volunteers from different areas in Pueblo County will be meeting four times a year to break down where both the excise and retail sales taxes on recreational marijuana are being spent. Jason Chippeaux is now the chair of the committee, and said there’s no shortage of need for the money in the community, and there are lots of ideas as to how it should be used. “My interest primarily was that of a citizen, with two kids who live in Pueblo, and rooting for the best for Pueblo,” said Chippeaux.
