Sales Records In 2020 Push Total Colorado Cannabis Sales Near $10 Billion
Since cannabis was first legalized in Colorado in 2014, cannabis sales have been steadily increasing every year.

This represents a year-over-year increase of 25.35%, smashing the 2019 $1.7 billion Colorado cannabis sales record.
2020 Is The Best Year On Record For Colorado Cannabis Sales
As mentioned, overall sales for cannabis products in Colorado reached a stunning $2.19 billion.

Most stunningly, Colorado cannabis sales reached $186 Million in December alone, representing the single highest sales month the state has ever seen.
Overall, since the introduction of legal recreational marijuana in 2014, the taxes and fees levied on cannabis have generated more than $1.63 billion in tax and fee revenue for Colorado. This funding has been primarily used for transportation and education funding at both state and local levels.
Thanks to the success of its state regulation program, the future is bright for cannabis in Colorado, and sales of recreational and medical marijuana are likely to continue to grow in the future and generate even more much-needed tax revenue.
