Bet you'll never guess of much Mary Jane the state of Colorado is projected to go through this year…
Okay, don't break your bong. We'll spill the deets!
Since making recreational weed legal in the rocky mountain state, it's said that dispensary sales are on course to sell 130 metric tons ever year, which breaks down to about 10 tons a month!!
Holy cannabis moly!
Surveys revealed that most of the marijuana is consumed by heavy, more regular users — but casual smokers, as well as out-of-staters aren't uncommon, AND pay up to $220 per ounce.
But with increased sales, comes increased scrutiny!
A newly released study linking pot use to fatalities in car crashes has come out, and the results are less than ideal.
One study shows more drivers involved in fatal car accidents in Colorado are testing positive for weed usage — and the state happens to have the highest percentage of this occurring.
The study was put in place to "reflect a general increase in marijuana use during this … time period in Colorado," but we're pretty certain more like these will be performed, and stricter sanctions could be put in place!
After all, most are super curious how legal, commercially sold marijuana will impact the state.
