Colorado cannabis dispensaries saw April retail sales surge 58 percent over April 2015 to reach $117 million according to Boulder-based BDS Analytics, a firm that tracks retail cannabis sales nationwide. That smashed the previous monthly record of $101 million set last December. The adult-use or “recreational” channel rose 81 percent to $77 million, while medical outlets climbed 28 percent to $41 million.

A massive snowstorm that dropped 1 to 4 feet of snow on the state April 15-18 failed to suppress Colorado consumers’ enthusiasm for 4/20. The week culminating in that iconic, unofficial pot holiday reached $34 million in retail sales, a 44 percent increase over the same period one year earlier. April 20 itself garnered $7.3 million, crushing the previous daily record of $6.1 million set on the tax holiday of September 16, 2015, and rising 53 percent over April 20, 2015.

Every significant category contributed to April’s robust growth, with retail dollars and units sold rising substantially across the industry. Edibles rose 83 percent over last April to $13 million, flower grew 38 percent to $67 million, and concentrates reached $27 million on a red-hot 133 percent growth. Concentrates’ share of dollars sold rose from 15 percent last April to 23 percent this April. All of that share was stolen from flower, which declined from 66 percent to 58 percent over the same period.

At the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in Clio, Michigan, rock superstar Melissa Etheridge did something she has never done before- and it was all caught on camera!

“This is my first time ever, smoking while performing,” Etheridge stated, then did just that. Etheridge, a well-known medical marijuana advocate, produced an individual joint case sometimes called a ‘doobe tube,’ complained about opening it (as we all do,) touted the benefits of a good sativa strain, then lit up and blew smoke into the air.

The Cannabis Cup is in Michigan, which has a medical marijuana law and also has a reciprocity law which allows registered patients from other states to legally use medicinal cannabis. Attendance to the Cup event is limited to legally registered medical marijuana patients, who were able to openly join Etheridge in lighting up without any fear of reprisal. Michigan has more than 180,000 card-carrying participants in the Medical Marihuana Program.

Etheridge performed on stage at the Auto City Speedway, where hundreds of vendors and thousands of patients braved heat as high as 96 degrees to enjoy the first day of the annual High Times celebration.
