Christmas comes early to Colorado….

The Denver Post reports the state made history yesterday when it became the first state to issue businesses licenses to sell marijuana for recreational use. So far, 136 licenses were issued. The licensed stores can begin selling pot to adults on January 1.

In addition to the retail licenses, the Post reports Colorado issued licenses for “178 marijuana-cultivation facilities” and “31 marijuana-infused products makers.”

Here’s a map of the stores that received licenses. Here’s an article about one Colorado pot bakery whose business is already booming. Meanwhile, tickets for pot consumption are up sharply from 2012.

The new laws do not allow people to smoke pot in public.
