SACRAMENTO (AP) – Gov. Jerry Brown is projecting California will raise $643 million in taxes during the first year of recreational marijuana sales through licensed stores. The figure included in Brown’s budget proposal Wednesday is less than the $1 billion in revenue that state experts have previously projected. State officials have struggled to project how much money the state would raise after recreational marijuana sales began Jan. 1. Brown and the Legislature have little say over spending marijuana taxes, which must be spent according to a formula approved by voters in 2016. Gov.
