Beginning January 1, 2014, the “Colorado experiment” saw a fantastic launch, with trailblazers reveling in their new freedoms. The lines were immense outside dispensaries across the state.
The now-legal Colorado marijuana industry saw over $1 million in revenues on day 1. Cannabis advocates and users rushed to the state to enjoy the plant and rights for which they have fought so hard. Many patients who are alleviated by marijuana properties are planning on re-locating to the state. It’s a bright new year for the industry, and we only hope other states soon follow suit.
Washington state dispensaries are slated to start operating similarly in the spring. Forty-eight more states to go!
