Newest pot sales numbers show Colorado on track for an even bigger payday in 2017
Three years, billions of dollars, and thousands of new jobs into Colorado’s legal marijuana experiment, we’re still nowhere near the economic ceiling of retail cannabis.
New monthly revenue figures indicate the state is on track to exceed last year’s massive sales totals for medical and recreational weed. Retail stores sold more than $125 million in product statewide in April, The Cannabist calculates based on state revenue numbers.
Through the first four months of 2017, the state has collected over $76 million in taxes and fees on almost half a billion dollars in sales.
