After a one month dip in Colorado marijuana sales, the numbers are back on the rise. Sales numbers increased month after month from the first day of legal recreational marijuana sales in January through August 2014. The trend continued for seven months. Then, sales decreased for the first time from August to September 2014. The numbers for October have been released, and Colorado is seeing green once again.
In total, with medical and recreational powers combined, more than $60 million has been collected from marijuana sales, taxes, licenses and fees in the state of Colorado since January 2014.
During the month of October, recreational cannabis sales, alone, totaled over $3 million. Beginning this month, the number of winter adventure tourists traveling to Colorado to enjoy some of the best skiing and snowboarding the world has to offer will increase, and as a result, recreational cannabis sales are expected to significantly increase.
