Marijuana sales in Illinois broke yet another monthly record in August, according to a report from the state Department of Financial and Professional Regulation that was released on Tuesday.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Illinois has seen escalating cannabis sales month-over-month. In August, consumers purchased more than 1.3 million marijuana products for a total of nearly $64 million. More than $17 million of those sales came from out-of-state visitors.
In July, the total sales reached about $61 million—the previous record. The new adult-use sales figures don’t include data about purchases made through the state’s medical cannabis program.
