It turns out they are very motivated. To buy pot. And because of that, Colorado's recreational marijuana shops are already running low on supplies of the green bud. Via Time:
A few days into the experiment, the new world of legal recreational marijuana sales in Colorado appears to be a big success—so much so that pot shops are finding it impossible to keep up with demand.
Stoners, it turns out, love being able to buy pot legally.
The two operational pot shops in Pueblo collectively sold $87,000 of marijuana on January 1, per the Pueblo Chieftain, and store owners say that if demand persists anywhere near the current high, they’ll be sold out in the very near future. Likewise, Toni Fox, owner of the 3D Cannabis Center in Denver, told the Colorado Springs Gazette that a sellout is imminent. “We are going to run out,” she said on Thursday, day 2 of legal recreational marijuana sales. “It’s insane. This weekend will be just as crazy. If there is a mad rush, we’ll be out by Monday.”
But don't fret. It's not like there wasn't a person you could call for pot a few days ago. He's still around and probably would love to hear from you. It's been a rough five days for his bottom line.
