Colorado – Sells $34 million in Marijuana in one month – crime down 15%, $3.4 million given to schools

005-2 Weed sales are continuing to incline, and crime rates are continuing to decline.   Not counting medicinal weed sales, Colorado sold over $34 million in their recreational weed market in the month of August just for recreational purposes. $3.4 million of that (10%) goes straight into the government and into building schools. Seriously though, crime has dropped by a massive 15% and the murder rate has dropped by a massive 42.0%! All the money brought in from selling cannabis is going into free education and cleaning up the streets. Nice one.

Only in 2014. Recreational sales reach higher than medical sales.
