Pueblo County won't accept any more recreational marijuana business applications this year.

The county says they have reached its self-imposed limit of 10 for the year. Last year when approving the sale of recreational marijuana, county commissioners limited the number of store permits to 10 in 2014.

Pueblo County made the announcement Wednesday, the same day that the state released a study about how much pot is being smoked in Colorado. The state says 485,000 adults use marijuana regularly, accounting for both recreational and medical pot. One hundred and thirty metric tons of marijuana is projected to be sold this year in Colorado; most of it to residents. Nine tons are expected to be sold to visitors.
