Nearly $2 Million Spent On Recreational Marijuana First Day It Was Legal In New Jersey

TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) -- New Jersey's newest cash crop is bringing in a lot of green in the Garden State. State officials say more than 12,000 people spent almost $2 million on cannabis products last Thursday.

That was the first day recreational marijuana was allowed in the state.
