A few days into the experiment, the new world of legal recreational marijuana sales in Colorado appears to be a big successso much so that pot shops are finding it impossible to keep up with demand.
According to the Denver Post, at least 37 stores in Colorado were licensed to sell recreational pot to anyone 21 or over as of New Years Day. The Associated Press and others reported long lines outside Denver pot shops, with some eager customers forced to wait three to five hours before getting a chance to go inside, step up to the counter, and make a purchase.
Prices have been steepin some cases, stores were charging $50 or even $70 for one-eighth of an ounce of pot that cost medical marijuana users just $25 the day beforeand taxes add on an extra 20% or so. Even so, sales have been brisk.
The two operational pot shops in Pueblo collectively sold $87,000 of marijuana on January 1, per the Pueblo Chieftain, and store owners say that if demand persists anywhere near the current high, theyll be sold out in the very near future.

Then watch the 9-1-1 switchboards light up.
I think you mean 7-11.
Anyone else notice how the news clips of the pot smokers lining up to buy weed in Colorado looked just like the homos in Utah lining up to get married?
Brave New world.
A drugged population is a controlled one.
This is not how I envisioned the rollout of Pot America to take place. I’ve always imagined it going through the normal drugs channels, and seen myself one day rolling joints overnight in the pharmacy. These dispensaries are killing my buzz, yo.
What follow-on effect is this having on the price of video games and Doritos?
Do you support Colorado’s authority under the Tenth Amendment to carry out this policy, even though you disagree with it?
I can’t see Colorado ever being a “red” state again. (As in Red or Blue).
Choomers are such chumps.
Ironically, these leftscum and potheads are paving the way for countering over-reaching fedgov power. After all, what they are doing is a blatant violation of federal law. Meanwhile, obastard plays another round of golf in Hawaii.
Can’t decide yet if this is a good thing or a bad thing...
The sad part is that pot is a "gateway" drug. That means that many of the stupids will go on to "bigger" and "better" highs. Ain't that just swell?
America 2014: dope, homosex, and open-borders.
This country is ready for the ash heap. To think that most of my adulthood I would have been willing to give my life for my country. No way in hell would I do that now. Not for this deviant, putrifying nation.
Mr. 10 amendment do you support the “right” of states to allow queer marriage if they want?
Why go to the government approved, overpriced dispensories? Don’t the buyers already have connections?
I am indifferent to it.
But I do think its eerie how much those lining up for pot in Colorado looked like those gays lining for same sex sodomy sanction licenses.
Here in Dem controlled Maryland the one party government made heavily taxed casinos legal.
A drugged population is a controlled one, and collect those taxes.
Its actually better than it has been. Drug use and alcoholism are way down from their peaks. We have other problems but this one is getting better.
The other matters, such as collapsed morals, failing marriages, bastard children, overwhelming bureaucracy and fascist corporatism are much worse than drugs have ever been.
