Legal sales create new Colorado commodity: Marijuana

Purchaser: ‘I feel free’
Toni Fox, owner of Denver’s Discreet Dispensary, makes the symbolic first sale of recreational marijuana to Sean Azzariti, wearing a checkered shirt, on Wednesday in Denver.
Darren Austin of Georgia and his son, Tyler Austin, of North Carolina made the trip to Colorado to be among the first to purchase marijuana in a legal, over-the-counter sale on New Year’s Day at Denver’s Discreet Dispensary, one of about 40 shops statewide licensed to sell recreational marijuana.
With jars of their product displayed, employees of Medicine Man in Denver sell marijuana to a customer Wednesday in Denver. New Year’s Day 2014 will be remembered as the first day that any government in the world allowed licensed retail sales of marijuana. Sale of the drug remains a federal offense, but the U.S. Department of Justice has signaled it will let Colorado sales proceed as long as the state is running a tight regulatory system.
