It's the tenth consecutive month in which sales have topped $100 million, and the sustained double-digit growth rate caught the attention of some analysts and economists contacted by The Cannabist

The Colorado cannabis industry's unbridled growth hasn't waned — in fact, it's still setting records.
The state's licensed marijuana shops captured nearly $132 million of recreational and medical cannabis sales in March, according to The Cannabist's extrapolations of state sales tax data made public Tuesday.
The monthly sales haul of $131.7 million sets a new record for Colorado's relatively young legal marijuana industry, besting the previous high of $127.8 million set last September, The Cannabist's calculations show. It's the tenth consecutive month that sales have topped $100 million.
Sales tax revenue generated for the state during March was $22.9 million, according to the Colorado Department of Revenue.
