In Illinois, the first month of legalized recreational marijuana sales earned $40 million.

I'm not surprised about the total sales on legal cannabis in Illinois for the first month. demand was high and the lines were long. Imagine how much more money could have been generated if the supply could keep up.

According to,

"More than $1 million worth of legal pot was sold across the state every day in January, according to figures released Monday by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. All told, $39.2 million was spent on marijuana during the first month of legal use in the state. Of that, $30.6 million was spent by Illinois residents, according to the department. State officials say nearly 975,000 products were bought at dispensaries during that time."

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
