Adult-use cannabis sales launched in Massachusetts in November 2018, and already the state’s dispensaries have reported more than $2 billion in sales.

The state’s seed-to-sale tracking system showed $2,009,007,478 in gross sales at the close of business Aug. 31, according to data from the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission.

“This milestone speaks to the success of licensees that have interacted with the Commission from the application stage, maintained compliance with our strict regulations, and contribute every day to communities across the Commonwealth,” Cannabis Control Commission Executive Director Shawn Collins said in a press release. “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.”
