According to the Colorado Department of Revenue, Marijuana sales continue to set new records. Sales topped $226 million in July 2020. Marijuana dispensaries were deemed essential businesses during the coronavirus pandemic and were allowed to remain open during the stay-at-home order. Colorado also made online sales of recreational marijuana legal during the pandemic and the delivery of recreational cannabis is set to be legalized in 2021. The office of Gov. Jared Polis released a statement on Wednesday saying, “Colorado’s cannabis industry is a model for the country, is thriving and continues to help create good-paying jobs. There is increased cannabis competition across the country but Colorado is still the green standard for cannabis investment, innovation, and to build up a business.” So far in 2020, people have bought more than $1.2 billion worth of pot products in Colorado. In all, the state has collected more than $240 million in taxes.
