DENVER (KKTV) - Monthly reports are available for statewide historical marijuana sales in Colorado as of Tuesday.
The total marijuana sales to date in Colorado is $4,246,180,455.
The Colorado Department of Revenue made the announcement, wanting to provide "an accurate picture of the financial footprint of the Colorado marijuana industry." The data will be from Jan. 2014 to the present and will release monthly reports going forward on the seventh business day of every month.
“We know this information is highly desired by the general public, media and researchers," said Mike Hartman, executive director of the Colorado Department of Revenue in a release. "To that end, in our efforts to be as transparent as possible, we will now provide aggregate sales data. That, coupled with state tax revenue data already provided, will give an accurate picture of the financial footprint of this burgeoning industry.”
The report will include total sales (gross sales minus wholesale sales) for retail marijuana stores and medical marijuana stores by county. Additionally, ORA will keep a running total of the actual sales figures from the year to date, the total sales per year since 2014, and the total sales since Jan. 2014. The monthly marijuana sales reports are posted on the same day as the marijuana tax data reports.
