August’s numbers were pushed by increasing recreational sales
Colorado’s marijuana industry continued to break records in August, according to the state’s Department of Revenue, with legal marijuana sales bringing in over $141.3 million that month. The previous record had been set just the month before.
Sales began to rev up in June, DOR data shows, when overall dispensary revenues hit $129.5 million after a slow start to the year. Even more money was spent on pot in July, when the industry brought in a then-record $138.5 million, just beating out August 2017 for the highest monthly total since recreational marijuana sales began in January 2014.
