The first commercial pot shops in Massachusetts sold more than $2.2 million worth of marijuana products during the first five days they were open for business.
That’s according to figures released Tuesday by the Cannabis Control Commission.
The stores in Northampton and Leicester began operating on November 20 and sold $ 440,000 of cannabis that day. On Friday, the most busy day, stores reported about $ 480,000 in gross sales after Thanksgiving.
In the first five days period, a total of 56,380 marijuana products were purchased.
The Commission published the figures without comment.
Store openings were not without interruption as some Leicester residents complained about traffic jams and other problems during a town hall on Monday.
Additional Massachusetts stores are expected to open in the coming months.
