Telluride Makes History With First Marijuana Sales

Lines formed early outside of local pot dispensaries yesterday, as Telluride and Colorado made history with the first legal recreational marijuana sales in the nation. San Miguel County Commissioner Art Goodtimes, a member of the Green Party, was first in line to make his purchase.
The Denver Post published a photo of the anxious people waiting outside of The Green Room on Jan. 1, and Outside Magazine called Telluride “Colorado’s New Pot Paradise” for the town’s readiness to accommodate the new business.
