Colorado's proposed 25 percent tax on recreational marijuana attracted a few dozen protesters Wednesday to a pot-tax fundraiser featuring remarks from Gov. John Hickenlooper.

About 30 marijuana activists handed out free joints and marijuana concentrate to users over 21 and criticized the proposed tax rate as too steep. Retail sales are set to begin in Colorado on Jan. 1.
