WA Pot Sales Catching Up With Liquor Sales

(Olympia, WA)  --  New figures show that state-sanctioned recreational-marijuana sales in Washington surpassed 200-million dollars during a quarter for the first time.  The "News Tribune" reports sales of marijuana products hit nearly 213-million dollars in the second quarter of 2016, while sales of liquor amounted to nearly 249-million during the same period.  In the third quarter, the amount of pot sales rose to nearly 279-million dollars after the state's closure of medical marijuana shops made all sales go through licensed recreational-marijuana retailers.  Third-quarter figures for liquor won't be released until early next year.
