The state of Colorado estimates that its annual demand for marijuana is 130.3 metric tons.
But how heavy is 130 metric tons anyway?
It’s the equivilant of 287,259 pounds. But that’s also such a mammoth number that context doesn’t come naturally. Thankfully The Cannabist’s crackpot data team is here for you.
Colorado’s annual marijuana demand is heavier than a space shuttle or blue whale — but not quite as weighty as a locomotive.
So yes, it’s a lot of weed.
