The top pot regulators in Colorado are meeting today to discuss the status of the recently legal recreational marijuana business. KRCC’s Rachel Gonchar reports.

A month after the sale of marijuana in Colorado officially became legal, state lawyers and law professors are gathering with top rule makers to talk about how the industry and regulation is going.

Stores are expected to disclose January sales tax figures next week, after which Colorado will have its first financial estimates of the recreational pot market. Reports from dispensaries indicate sales have been strong, although the high demands seen in the first few days of legalization have died down some.
