Oregon's First Month of Legal Weed Sales Triples Expectations

A lot of exciting things happened in the legal marijuana realm this past week, one of which being that Oregon collected a shit load of money from their first month doing recreational business. 

How much is a shit load, you ask? Well, about $3.5 million, which is more than three times the amount of money they expected to collect.

In fact, it did so well, this news may push the revenue distribution date to cities and counties up, which means people will be getting the money they need much, much faster. 

Based on the 25% tax on recreational marijuana in Oregon, this means that they sold about $14 million worth of weed.  That’s a shit load of weed. Way to go Oregon!
