Colorado Surpasses $10 Billion in Retail Cannabis Sales

Denver, CO: Consumers have purchased over $10 billion worth of cannabis products since retail sales became legal in 2014, according data compiled by the state’s department of Revenue. 

In all, retailers have sold $10.5 billion worth of products. Tax revenue from those sales totals $1.7 billion – much of which has been earmarked toward public schools and infrastructure projects. 

Sales have been steadily increasing year-over-year in Colorado since legalization. In March, retailers sold $207 million worth of cannabis products, a near historic high.
