(Tucson) Arizona’s more than 114,000 medical marijuana patients smoked, ate or otherwise consumed more than 29 tons of the drug last year.
That’s more than half of a fully loaded tractor-trailer’s worth of pot.
Or, looking at it another way, it’s the equivalent in weight of more than 58,600 bags of Oreos.
It’s also a 52 percent increase over the amount of pot legally sold in Arizona in 2015. And the 2015 numbers themselves were double the prior year’s.
