Kevin Newman and the W5 team invesigate Colorado's first year of legal marijuana sales. Research suggested the biggest surprise... a year after Colorado allowed municipalities to sell legal weed has been the market share edible products have captured. More than a third of every dollar earned from the sale of marijuana comes from weed people are eating or drinking, not smoking.

This episode gives viewers a much better understanding of how dangerous these products could be in the hands of young children who might confuse them in a refrigerator for regular juice or chocolate. Some of the other manufacturers in the state are selling marijuana-infused candies and chewables a child easily could mistake for the non-THC variety because they look identical. They're intended for adult use, but you can be sure teenagers are trying to get a hold of them too.
