Average CO Pot Smoker Expected To Spend $650 Next Year
They're trying to calculate taxes, of course
If you're an average pot smoker in Colorado—paying average prices for average-quality marijuana—you can expect to spend around $650 on weed next year.
A study conducted by the Colorado Futures Center at Colorado State University aimed to get to the bottom of how much the state can expect to collect in tax revenues now that marijuana is legal. By doing a little extra math, we can get a rough estimate for what the average marijuana enthusiast will spend annually as well.
