DENVER — Marijuana sales in Colorado increased 10 percent in August, a bump attributed to more stores opening across the state.

The Colorado Department of Revenue announced Thursday that in August, customers bought more than $33 million in recreational cannabis — up from $29.7 million in July and $24.7 million in June. Consumers bought more than $32.2 million in medical marijuana in August. That's up from $28.9 million in July and $28.6 million in June.
