Green gold: Colo. Underestimated pot demand


“This study finds total marijuana demand to be much larger than previously estimated. Our point estimate of demand is 121.4 tons per year for adult residents. This is 31% higher than a recent Department of Revenue assessment, 89% higher than a study by the Colorado Futures Center, and 111% higher than an older study by the Colorado Center for Law and Policy. The primary difference is caused by much heavier dosage amounts consumed by the state’s “heavy user” population — those who consume marijuana on a daily basis,” the study said
