Your Colorado Pot Update 5 Years After Legalization
Five years after the legalization of marijuana in our state, the Colorado Department of Revenue's Marijuana Enforcement Division has released some updates on 2018's tracked, taxed, and tested weed.
That's right— the weed industry is nothing if not vigilant with its data, and this report opens the community's eyes to what exactly is happening after legalization.
For example, some key findings (according to a press release from the Colorado Department of Revenue) include the fact that "An average of 1,316 new occupational licenses were issued each month"— wow— and for the third year in a row, Denver was among El Paso, Pueblo, and Boulder Counties as the counties with the highest number of plants cultivated each month.
Adult-use accounted for "66% of the total pounds of marijuana flower sold to consumers in 2018", and that number continues to grow (pardon the pun).
The marijuana industry isn't one that's going away anytime soon, and we're glad to see the data backing that up. If you want to learn more about the report, head to this link.
