Recreational marijuana stores in Maine sold nearly $159 million in cannabis products in 2022.
That total nearly doubled sales of roughly $82 million in 2021, according to Lewiston-based Maine Public Radio, which aggregated data from the state’s Office of Cannabis Policy.
Last year, Maine implemented several changes to its marijuana rules, including:
- Allowing medical cannabis caregivers without storefronts to sell pre-rolls.
- Opening up both the medical and recreational markets to out-of-state business interests.
- Allowing curbside pickup and delivery for licensed adult-use stores.
The state launched adult-use sales in October 2020.
