The month of March was huge for the cannabis industry in Colorado. Dispensaries in the centennial state collected more revenue in the Month of March than any other month since recreational marijuana became legal in January of 2014.

A new report from the Colorado Department of Revenue shows that in the month of March $142.4 million in marijuana products were sold. From February to March dispensary revenues jumped over 16 percent.


"People are realizing that this is here to stay, it's not a joke," says Peter Marcus, with Terrapin Care Station. "These are safe, regulated places to purchase cannabis, so people who might have been unwilling or hesitant to get involved in the first place, are now seeing that it's totally acceptable."

The previous record was $112 million, set last August.
