Sales in Montana’s new recreational cannabis market surpassed $13 million in February, although two different sets of figures offer slightly different versions of the exact total.

Recreational sales totaled roughly $13 million between Jan. 31 and Feb. 27, according to the Helena Independent Record.

That total is a slight increase from the $12.8 million figure for January, the month the adult-use market launched.

However, monthly sales figures released by the Montana Department of Revenue show approximately $13.5 million in adult-use sales in February.

That’s a decrease of 4.3% from January sales of roughly $14.1 million.
