We'll see in a few weeks what the demand is after the novelty of the first week for legalized marijuana sales in Colorado. But for the moment seller --both legal and street-- are swamped, causing prices to spike.

DENVER - Just six days after they opened for business, many Colorado marijuana shops say the demand for recreational pot is so high they have to ration the amount they sell customers to avoid selling out.

At a downtown Denver dispensary, the Lodo Wellness Center on Wazee Street, the owner is limiting customers to an eighth of an ounce, even though it's legal for each customer to purchase a full ounce.

Some retail marijuana shops and their suppliers are finding they can't keep up with demand. The long lines many have died down, but demand is still brisk.

"I expected to have some business," said Linda Andrews, owner of Lodo Wellness Center. "I didn't expect it to be that big."

Because of that, Andrews says there are a host of new complications.

"Well, we are still limiting our purchases," she said. "If we stopped imposing those limits, we could definitely sellout."
