Legal marijuana for sale: First customers buy pot for recreational use in Colorado


Retail sales of marijuana for recreational
purposes got underway at newly-licensed stores in Colorado on New Year’s Day. In Denver,
TV cameras and journalists filled the city’s Discreet Dispensary, as the store’s first
customer, Sean Azzariti, purchased a legal amount of marijuana. The Iraq war veteran
said he purchased marijuana to alleviate symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. I use recreational cannabis to help alleviate
my PTSD and it’s a stepping stone for other states to help other veterans, as well. Personal consumption, possession and cultivation
of marijuana has been legal for adults in Colorado for more than a year. But as of Wednesday,
cannabis was being being sold and taxed in a system similar to the way alcohol is distributed. In Colorado we expect almost $400 million
dollars in sales next year. Across the nation, the marijuana industries will create $2.34
billion dollars of economic activity. Voters in Washington state voted to legalise
marijuana at the same time Colorado did, in November 2012, but Washington is not slated
to open its first retail stores until later this year.

  • What are the prices? Anyway, the US really needs to stop growing the world's Heroin supply in Afghanistan if they're looking at changing drug policies.

    Of course it is all about the money, tell me where on planet earth cities can exist without it, would you rather buy high quality or trash quantity

    yay legal druggy wasters. Ah well if it keeps them off the streets, and locked up in their smoke-filled smelly homes it's all good.

  • Apparently it's like 10 times cheaper than it is to buy it illegally. I bet the drug dealers are so pissed off to be out of work.

    HEy people you must to know economical activity and billions of dollar work`s only with apple or chevrolet factory. Marijuana is good for other it is can make you happy for some times and you can feel more complex effect from living, but it is all in mostly time`s not make economical activity. 

  • Local drug dealers will be alright as long as they grow high quality. There will always be people looking to buy from their neighbors because not everyone wants to grow in their home.

  • If America can do it,then why can't we do it in the UK? Come on england let's get on the mowie wowie train:-) leagalise the green!..

  • The only reason I see this being an issue is hemp is a good material with a lot of uses and large corporations aren't going to like that and that's why weed has been illegal for so long. When government officials are bribed by these corporations to vote against legalizing it, then its clear why it isn't legal yet, everyone that voted against it has taken bribes. Its been proven by science, weed is less harmful then alcohol or tobacco and those are legal.
