APTOPIX Rethinking Pot The First Sales

Legal marijuana sales began January 1, 2014 in Colorado and there's already high demand.

FOX Business Network's Adam Shapiro reports on the progress from Denver:

Rethinking Pot Green Wednesday

Here in Denver at Medicine Man, 650 people lined up yesterday to buy marijuana legally -- a third of them, according to the store's owner, from out of state. Colorado residents can buy an ounce of marijuana, out-of-state residents can only buy a quarter-ounce. That ounce will run you roughly $400 -- that includes taxes which in Denver, state and city taxes on that ounce run roughly 33%. It's expected to raise nearly $70 million for the state of Colorado in 2014.

At the Medicine Man in Denver, Adam Shapiro, FOX News Radio.
