Colorado pot sales reach new heights according to tax data released by the Department of Revenue.

Sales of both medical and recreational marijuana continue to rise each month since legalization. In July more than $96 million worth of inventory were sold at dispensaries in Colorado, according to an article published by The Cannabist.


“Those numbers are showing that our pot tourism is surely increasing,” said Tyler Henson, president of the Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce. “People want to come here and try this out and tell their friends and family that they came to Colorado and tried some of the best cannabis the world has to offer and they had a great time.”
