Cannabis be true? Colorado pot sales fall


It appears that Colorado's booming pot industry has hit a bit of a bump.

Sales of marijuana for recreational and medical use fell in September for the first time since Colorado legalized it in January, according to tax data released this week.
 Colorado brought in $7.2 million in taxes and fees from recreational and medical marijuana sales in September. That's down from $7.7 million in August. Colorado's Department of Revenue only publishes tax data and not total retail sales of marijuana.

The dip is somewhat surprising considering that sales had been rising steadily since Colorado became the first state to permit the sale of recreational marijuana to anyone age 21 or older.
