Subject: Did pot money save small town?

Trinidad, Colorado (CNN) Anthony Mattie walks down Main Street confronted by a shell of the town he once knew.

The retired state patrolman-turned-mayor pro tem stares at vacant building after building, his reflection bouncing off the empty glass storefront windows. The streets are lined with century-old facades, but not much more, except for a few cars slowly passing by.

Still, Mattie maintains a sparkle in his eye and a boyish grin as he shares the plan to bring his town back to life — thanks to marijuana money.
“The abandoned Pepsi plant became a marijuana dispensary. People resurrected these buildings that were about to fall and collapse,” he says.

It’s in large part thanks to at least $800,000 in marijuana tax revenue.”
