One thousand million.

Let it sink in.

That'show much money the state of Colorado has made from taxesin five years from selling legal cannabis. CONGRATS to you, my Colorado people. We are writing history. We are dispelling the stereotypes. We are making and breaking records. If you purchased recreational marijuana at any point since the 2014 legalization, you earned a pat on the back. You've become a part of making our state better.

Some of you might be reading this and honestly saying, "wait, that's all?" Let's not confuse marijuana sales themselves with state tax revenue.Sales have actually topped six billion dollars, but the amount going back to our beautiful state has just reached the monumental one billion number.

Others of you might just be annoyed that the (local) government is reaping the benefit of a pretty significant consumer tax. If that's the case, I encourage you to remember that the tax allows us to reap the benefits of safe, legal, and accessible cannabis. The tax is beginning to lessen the stigma, and our state is doing some pretty cool things with the increased revenue.

Where Does Colorado Cannabis Tax Revenue Go?

Tax revenue from marijuana sales in our state goes to accounts and initiatives like:

On a separate note, it's worth mentioning the success of these state-run drug-prevention programs.Ineligible minors (teens and those under 21) are actually responding to the campaigns and usage has dropped, even after recreational legalization, which was a major concern for those who voted againstAmendment 64, the ballot that changed Colorado's constitution to implement policies allowing the legal, recreational sales of marijuana.

These successes, of course, only compound the tangible benefit for the state. For example, approximately44,000 peopleand I have found gainful employment because of our favorite plant, and being employed naturally contributes to a state's overall health.

For more information on how our state spends this giant number, we recommend reading thisCPR article that explains where the revenue goes in a little more detail.

Cannabis Tax Revenue Continues to Rise

In thefirst three years of legalization, Colorado made 500 million dollars. Two years later, the number doubled. After a short lull,sales are booming again. Like, seriously booming -- sales in August were up 23% from last year. These increasing sales mean, of course, increased tax revenue to pour back into the state. Before you know it, we'll be capping two billion.

The point is, this is cause for celebration, in the form of agiant pre-rollor apre-roll wrapped in gold.

Quick Fact

Curing Cannabis Plants- This very gradual drying process involves moderate humidity and mild temperatures, preserving the dimensionality of cannabis plants and the consumption experience. The better and more gradual the curing process, the more sophisticated a grower's yields become, including preserved aromas, flavors, and potency.
