Legal Marijuana For Sale: First Customers Buy Pot For Recreational Use In Colorado

Published on Jan. 2, 2014

Subscribe to ITN News: The world's first state-licensed marijuana stores legally permitted to sell pot for purely recreational use to the general public have opened for business. In Denver, TV cameras and journalists filled Denver's Discreet Dispensary, as the store's first customer, Sean Azzariti, purchased a legal amount of marijuana. Azzariti, an Iraq war veteran, said he purchased the drug to alleviate symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Possession, cultivation and private personal consumption of marijuana by adults for the sake of just getting high has already been legal in Colorado for more than a year under a state constitutional amendment approved by voters. But as of Wednesday, cannabis was being legally produced, sold and taxed in a similar way to alcohol. Report by Mark Morris.
