Colorado Man Who Made First Legal Weed Purchase Storing Product to Donate to Museum

Got high off his own supply instead


what time is it?

Yesterday marked the beginning of a legal market in recreational marijuana in Colorado, the first time government-licensed shops have ever sold marijuana anywhere in the world. It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that the first person to purchase recreational marijuana in the state says he's putting it away for safe keeping.

From TMZ:

The first man to make a legal weed purchase in the United States … ever … is doing the most un-stoner thing possible with his new stash—he's locking it away in a safe.

32-year-old Sean Azzariti tells TMZ, he's storing his 3.5 grams of Bubba Kush, his truffle edible, and his $57 receipt from the Denver dispensary where he bought all the stuff because he plans to donate it to a museum.

Azzariti says instead he'd get high with marijuana already in his possession instead.
