One small step for marijuana, one giant leap for marijuana consumers. Legal recreational marijuana sales are officially occurring in Colorado today. From the looks of my twitter feed, just about every mainstream media outlet is in Colorado to witness legal marijuana transactions. Most of my friends in the marijuana media world are there too, which is good, because I prefer their coverage to a member of the mainstream media who has likely never seen someone buy marijuana before.
Iraq war veteran Sean Azzariti was the first person to buy legal recreational marijuana in Colorado. What strain did he buy you ask? Bubba Kush, as seen below:
In addition to purchasing the 1/8th of Bubba Kush, Mr. Azzariti also purchased a truffle, for a grand total (after tax) of $59.74, as seen in the picture below:
Are you planning on traveling to Colorado to purchase legal marijuana? If so, how far away are you traveling? Do you currently live in Colorado? If so, what's it like on the ground? Are you prepared for an influx of tourists coming to Colorado to buy legal marijuana? Do you live in Washington, and if so, how do you feel about Colorado selling legal marijuana while you still have to wait for full implementation? Regardless of how you feel, I think we can all agree that this is a very historic day for marijuana!
