As more and more states begin legalizing marijuana, Colorado’s cannabis industry continues to hit new highs.
Sales reports released by the Colorado Department of Revenue show dispensaries sold more than $114.3 million in recreational marijuana in March, a record number.
The previous record was set last August, when sales topped $112 million.
“People are realizing that this is here to stay, it’s not a joke,” says Peter Marcus, with Terrapin Care Station. “These are safe, regulated places to purchase cannabis, so people who might have been unwilling or hesitant to get involved in the first place, are now seeing that it’s totally acceptable.”
Since Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2012, nine additional states have followed.
The record numbers show a drop in marijuana tourism, isn’t hurting sales.
