Welfare Recipients Withdrawing Cash From ATMs At Pot Shops

During the first month of Colorado’s experiment with legal marijuana, welfare beneficiaries withdrew thousands of dollars in public-assistance cash from ATMs at pot shops.
At least 64 times, public-assistance benefits were accessed at businesses selling marijuana. A total of ,475 in public benefits was withdrawn at ATMs in establishments that sell pot. This figure includes medicinal dispensaries, recreational stores, and at least one place that combines the two. Some of these establishments sell groceries as well as pot, so there is no way to know exactly how much welfare money was spent on marijuana.
Colorado lawmakers recently failed to pass legislation that would have prohibited EBT withdrawals at retail marijuana shops, medical-marijuana dispensaries, and strip clubs. Last year, they passed legislation forbidding such transactions at gambling establishments, gun shops, bars, and liquor stores.
