The Aspen Times reports Aspen’s marijuana dispensaries made more than the liquor stores in revenue in 2017. The city’s Finance Department in its 2017 sales tax report says legal-pot sellers made $11.3 million in revenue last year compared with $10.5 million for liquor stores, marking the first time pot  sales made more than booze in Aspen.

 

Cannabis revenue is up 16% from 2016 for the city’s 12 retail sectors, which produced $9.7 million in sales. The report shows Aspen’s retailers combined to generate $730.4 million in revenue, 2 percent better than 2016. That’s a lot of green any way you look at it.
