DENVER (AP) -- Officials say Colorado dispensaries have sold more marijuana in the first 10 months this year compared to a record-setting sales year in 2019. The Denver Post reported that the Department of Revenue said dispensaries made about $200 million in October, pushing the state's annual revenue to more than $1.8 billion this year and making it the highest selling year since recreational marijuana hit the market in 2014.
