Colorado, Illinois and Oregon have all maintained record-breaking sales numbers in recent months despite the coronavirus and the recession.
In Colorado, medical and adult-use marijuana shops sold more than $192 million in May, according to Denver alt-weekly Westword. That’s up from $148 million the previous month.
Colorado’s total includes a record $43 million in MMJ sales and $149.1 million in recreational transactions.
In Illinois, the state’s cannabis stores sold $47.6 million worth of marijuana in June, another record for the nascent recreational cannabis market, according to the Daily Herald of Arlington Heights. That was up from a high of $44 million in May.
In Oregon, marijuana sales totals hit $103 million in May, topping the $100 million mark for the first time, the Portland Business Journal reported.
Then the state set a record in June, reaching just over $100 million.
