A Colorado ski town is on track to pass $10M in marijuana sales this year. It only has 3 shops

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Steamboat Springs marijuana sales are still on track to surpass $10 million this year, but for the first time there have been two consecutive months that have only shown single-digit increases over the previous year.

Sales were up 9 percent in August and 5 percent in September over the same months in 2016.

Steamboat marijuana store owners believe sales will eventually stabilize. The question is when will it happen?

“We’re going to see a plateau at some point,” Rocky Mountain Remedies co-owner Kevin Fisher said.

So far this year, marijuana sales at Steamboat’s three businesses are up 14 percent over 2016 with a total of $9,383,275. In 2016, total sales were up 18 percent over 2015.
