20 Things You Can Buy With The Colorado Cannabis Industry's $1.3 Billion

Colorado’s gamble with marijuana legalization is paying off big time. The state’s legal medical and recreational marijuana industries made $1.3 billion in 2016 alone.

To put that into perspective, here are 20 things you can buy with $1.3 billion.

1. New Schools

Based on the median costs of building schools in America in 2014, you could turn that $1.3 billion into 60 new elementary schools, 37 new middle schools or 22 new high schools.

2. Ivy League Education

Or if you’d rather help people get a top flight education, you could use that $1.3 billion to give 5,156 Harvard undergrads free tuition, fees and room and board for their entire four-year degree, based on 2016 estimates.

3. Becoming Batman

It would cost you $682,450,750 to become Batman, according to comic book historian Thaddeus Howze. That estimate includes the Batsuit, the Dark Knight’s gadgets, martial arts training, Wayne Manor, the Batcave and a butler.

So with $1.3 billion, you and a friend could become co-caped crusaders. Or you could flip a coin and the loser has to be Robin.
