Illinois dispensaries sold record $88 million in January after massive first year of recreational we
After selling a whopping $670 million worth of recreational marijuana during the first full year of legalization, Illinois pot shops reported record sales of $88 million in January.
While the implementation of Illinois’ recreational pot program has been marred by an ongoing licensing controversy, the high times have largely kept rolling at dispensaries across the state. January sales, released Tuesday, outpaced the $86 million reported in December. Last month, Illinois residents accounted for over $63 million in sales and about $25 million went to out-of-state residents.
