Despite stay-at-home orders and limitations on non-essential daily activities to combat COVID-19, Illinois marijuana dispensaries reaped $35.9 million in cannabis sales in March, an increase of about $1.1 million over February, according to Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office.
Illinois pot shops in February recorded $34.8 million in sales.
Included in those totals are sales to out-of-state customers, which decreased in March to $8.8 million from February’s total of $9.1 million.
Illinois legalized the sale and use of cannabis products by adults in January, becoming the 11th U.S. state to do so.
