image for Colorado passes $1 billion in marijuana state revenue

Colorado has now generated more than $1 billion in total state revenue from the legal marijuana industry, another milestone for the state that legalized cannabis in 2014.

Colorado already has posted some big numbers: More than $6 billion in total sales of cannabis since the birth of the new industry — over $6.5 billion at the end of May, according to just-released monthly data from the state.

And the state's revenue from adult-use marijuana sales has accelerated.

The state's legal marijuana sales revenue doubling from the $500 million mark to $1 billion ($1,017,120,136 exactly) took under two years, while getting to $500 million took close to three and a half years.

Since July 2017, Colorado total monthly tax and fee revenue from marijuana sales has never dipped below $20 million.

In February 2014, the first month with sales tracking data, total state revenue was $3.5 million.

It's creating tens of thousands of jobs, tax revenue for the state, filling up buildings for landlords and reducing crime. »

Netflix, for example, recommends a 25Mbps connection for 4K video even though its videos generally stream at about 15Mbps.

Karl Bode's Vice story, "Google Stadia will reveal how stupid Internet data caps are," is worth reading on this topic. »
