There was $39.2 million in legal recreational cannabis sold in Colorado in February, setting a record for the second straight month. The new numbers come courtesy of the Colorado Department of Revenue.
The nearly $40 million in sales garnered roughly $4 million in taxes for the state, with the majority of that money going to school construction.
According to the Department of Revenue, there was $700 million worth of legal cannabis sold in Colorado in 2014; $386 million for medical cannabis, and $314 million for recreational cannabis. This resulted in $76 million in taxes.
In January, there was $36.4 million in recreational cannabis sold, a record for the most in any given month until the release of these new numbers
