By 2016 once tallies are in the city expects to top their conservative estimate of 2.1 million in tax revenue.
Trinidad’s advantage is a progressive city council a welcoming Economic Development Department and a city happy to accept cannabis and cannabis ancillary businesses throughout the city.

“For us the choice was easy. It’s beautiful in Trinidad; historic, spiritual and near the corner of four states”, says local shop owner Laurie Lyon.
Ms. Lyon and Ms. Mullen’s company has the only cannabis friendly smoke lounge in SE Colorado.
