Washington consumers $1 billion in legal pot

Seattle PI

Well, Washington (and tourists and neighbors from border states), you've gone and consumed more than $1 billion worth of marijuana since the legal market began in July 2014.

So far, the great destruction of our society has not occurred ... or if it is ongoing, it's slow and sneaky. What has happened, however, is that more than $250 million has been generated in excise tax to the state.

With choice pot being sold by the gram and carrying a price tag close to a 'c'note per, it's easy to see how the billion dollar mark isn't much of a reach.
To the 'Seattle clone', here, here!
