Oklahoma’s new medical marijuana market is continuing to blossom, hitting more than $7.2 million in sales in February alone.

That’s up from $4.3 million in January, after a $1 million sales month in December, the first full month of MMJ sales in the state.

Oklahoma voters legalized medical marijuana just last June, and the state’s business-friendly MMJ program has hit the ground running, with almost 55,000 patients, 1,100 dispensaries and 1,800 growers all registered or licensed since August.
