Marijuana sales get a boost in Pueblo County as smokers prepare for 4/20.

PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. -

Pot’s biggest day is tomorrow (4/20/14), and marijuana madness has hit Pueblo County already.

People from all over the U.S. have been crowding into the county’s pot shops all week.

Mike Stetler said it has been a hectic week at Marisol Therapeutics.

“We’re constantly against that situation. Supply and demand is so much,” he said.

Rick Hooper is the general manager at The Spot. 

He said 4/20 week has made his business more money. Hooper said profits have gone up 20 percent.

Calie Basch is from California. He said he is visiting Pueblo West because he likes the freedom of buying recreational marijuana legally.

Bobby Brown said he moved back to Colorado from Phoenix.

“My heart tugged me here and when I found out they legalized marijuana that was the last straw,” he said.

If you are visiting from out-of-state, you can’t take marijuana across state lines.

Pueblo County has a 3.5 percent sales tax on recreational marijuana.
