Colorado Marijuana Sales Top $1 Billion Since Pandemic Began



BY:

Colorado has seen over $1.1 billion in marijuana sales since the COVID-19 pandemic began in this country, according to figures from the state Department of Revenue.

Legal marijuana sales topped $200 million in August for the second month in a row, reaching the second-highest monthly total since recreational sales started in 2014. Counting back to March of this year, when Colorado and the rest of the nation began shutting down over the pandemic, dispensaries have sold over $1.1 billion in marijuana products — and that’s not counting sales in September and October.

Dispensaries sold over $218.6 million worth of marijuana products in August, DOR data shows. Recreational sales accounted for more than $176.5 million (also the second-highest monthly total since 2014), while medical marijuana sales remained strong at just over $42 million.

August marijuana sales saw a slight dip from the record-breaking $226.3 million tallied in July, but still represented more than a 20 percent increase year over year from the same month in 2019.

Although marijuana sales typically start a slow seasonal decline in September, this year has been anything but predictable. After a bumpy start to 2020, state budget projections were bracing for decreasing marijuana revenue, citing declining tourism and resident wages as the pandemic continued. [Read more at Westword]
