Update: Massachusetts Marijuana Establishments Surpass $2 Billion in Gross Sales

On eve of Commission’s fourth birthday, Marijuana Establishments surpass $2 billion in gross sales since retail stores opened in Massachusetts; progress continues to achieve industry goals WORCESTER—On the eve of Wednesday, September 1, the Cannabis Control Commission (Commission)’s fourth birthday, adult-use Marijuana Establishments in Massachusetts surpassed $2 billion in gross sales, according to information reported in the state’s mandatory seed-to-sale tracking system, the agency announced today.

This number also underscores the entire agency’s tireless efforts, particularly those of our hardworking staff, to thoughtfully regulate a safe, accessible, and effective adult-use marketplace that keeps critical tenets of our mission – public health, public safety, and equity, among others – front of mind.” Over the first year of adult-use sales, from November 2018 to November 2019, 33 Marijuana Retailers generated $393.7 million in gross sales, before licensees ultimately tallied $444.9 million for the full calendar year of 2019. And despite being closed for two months in 2020 due to the COVID-19 public health emergency in Massachusetts, 89 Marijuana Retailers generated $714.1…
