You had questions this year — questions only Google could answer.
So what was on the minds of most Coloradans in 2014?
According to a list released by Estately, a national real estate search site, marijuana was the most-searched term in the state — a fitting trend since the 2012 passage of Amendment 64 and the Jan. 1, 2014 opening of cannabis shops across the state.
Washington, which passed Initiative 502 legalizing small amounts of marijuana-related products for people 21 and over in 2012, also Googled marijuana. As did Alaska, which searched its legalization.
