AMericas biggest cash crop
Sales figures from Colorado in the first month of legal sales alone, show that financial impact will probably make the marijuana market compete if not dwarf the amount spent on alcohol by Colorado consumers in its first year out of the gate. Approximately 37 marijuana stores across the state of Colorado estimated close to $5 million in sales during their first week in business. The 30 day figures saw a whopping $14 million in profit from the same and generated $2 million in tax revenue. Sales have been so brisk, they are now on track to reach as much as $1 billion by the end of this year just in Colorado alone.
