Marijuana could save the United States of America -- or at the very least Colorado -- because the State is $2 MILLION richer from its new marijuana tax -- and that's just for the month of January.
It's pretty staggering ... in the first month since the pot law became effective, more than $14 million worth of recreational weed was sold in the state. Taxes on gross sales reached $2.01 million.
Colorado has around 160 state-licensed pot stores and it's clear ... business is booming.
