DENVER (AP) — The Denver FBI has honored a youth dropout prevention group apparently without realizing it is partially funded with marijuana taxes.
Youth on Record Executive Director Jami Duffy mentioned the funding Thursday as she accepted the Director’s Community Leadership Award at Denver FBI headquarters.
She said the program that focuses on music received $75,000 in marijuana tax revenue last year and is expecting an additional $148,000 this year.
Colorado’s voter-approved marijuana industry is still illegal under federal law and faces uncertainty under new U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Asked about the funding, FBI spokeswoman Amy Sanders pointed to the corporations and foundations listed as donors on Youth on Record’s website . That list does not include the marijuana-based funding.
