Pot stores open in Colorado
SEATTLE — Wednesday marked a historical day for marijuana advocates, as Colorado opened the first legal recreational pot stores in the world.
According to The Denver Post, lines in front of some stores grew from a dozen people to hundreds. The demand had one shop raising its prices for an eighth of an ounce, from $25 to $45. Other retailers pledged to not change their prices.
Despite the crowds, however, police did not report any problems on the first day of sales.
