First Day Colorado Pot Sales Hit $1 Million

Colorado pot retailers are getting high on something else: profits. The state's marijuana dispensaries raked in $1 million on the first day of legalization, as Coloradoans braved winter weather and hours-long lines to be the first Americans to buy legal recreational weed. Marijuana was on sale at 24 stores, most located in Denver, and regulators said the rollout of the nation's first legal pot industry went smoothly. Marijuana is legal with a doctor's note in 18 other states.
