California set a marijuana sales record of $348 million in July, according to Headset, a marijuana data tracking firm based in Seattle. Also, the data shows July was the biggest month since the 2018 rollout of the state’s legal market. Before July, the biggest cannabis sales month in California came in March, when many retailers witnessed panic-buying by consumers when the coronavirus pandemic took hold. California’s 2020 monthly totals are a stark contrast to 2019 when sales got above $300 million for only the final three months of the year.
