DENVER (AP)- Colorado sold less recreational pot in May than in April, the first month-to-month sales decline for the newly legal drug.

Tax collections reported by the Colorado Department of Revenue this week showed that Colorado sold about $21 million of recreational pot in May. That was down slightly from April, when the 4/20 marijuana holiday was credited in part for a boost in recreational sales to $22 million.

Maybe the buyers are too stoned to find the pot store again?

I’m sure there were lots of older people who wanted to smoke legal pot just for the novelty of being able to finally do so. And when they did, they were reminded of why they quit smoking weed back in their 20s.

Going serious for just a moment, the reason that ‘legal’ pot sales are declining is that ‘illegal’ pot is being sold at a lower price.

HA, good one.

I can only speculate, but I hope this follows the repeal of Prohibition: uptake from the curios/celebratory, then it drops like a rock as everyone goes back to their lives...

Maybe they had a hard time coming up with the scratch for rent and other bills so they had to back off on their legal pot buys...

The black market in pot is booming.

The tax burden is over 25%, so it will stay strong.

Is there even news here? What was the sales figure for March?
