Medical marijuana by the numbers

Statistics from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment tell the story of medical marijuana in the state:
Almost 161,500 people applied for a card to purchase medical marijuana starting in June 2001, when the Medical Marijuana Registry opened, to Aug. 1, 2010, when a moratorium on applications took effect.
The registry issued cards to 80,550 people.
More than 900 physicians signed affidavits saying a patient could benefit from medical marijuana.
Extreme pain is cited by 94 percent of card holders as the reason they use marijuana.
Only 1 percent each cite glaucoma, HIV/AIDS or cachexia (undue loss of body mass) as the reason for having a card.
Men hold 69 percent of the cards, women, 31 percent.
La Plata County has 1,480 card holders.
Mineral County has the fewest card holders with 10.
Denver County tops the list of card holders with 12,062.
