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.

Or, looking at it another way, it’s the equivalent of more than 58,600 16-ounce bags of Oreos.

That’s a 52 percent increase in the amount of pot legally sold in 2015. And the 2015 numbers themselves were double the prior year.
