Selling Legal Pot in Massachusetts Has Exceeded $100 Million
I think I'm in the wrong business.
Legal pot sales in Massachusetts have topped the $100 million mark, according to NBC10 Boston. And these stores have only been opened since November. Just last week alone they racked up close to $7 million, the news station reported.
According to NBC10 Boston, the average person buys around $41 worth of stuff.
I'm not a pot smoker so I don't even know how this works, and I'm not sure where exactly these stores are located in Massachusetts, but NBC 10 Boston stated that one just opened in Worcester last week.
There are a lot of restrictions around it all, too.
Officials are reminding those looking to buy legal recreational weed that they must be 21 years old, according to the news station, and also that "it is illegal to use marijuana in any public or federal space, including at restaurants, parks or movie theaters."
Additionally, NBC 10 Boston reported that you can't have "open containers" in a car, it's illegal to drive under the influence of pot, and it can't be brought to the airport or across state lines.
The news station added that recreational marijuana sales are legal in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California and Nevada.
