In July, Oregon broke its record for marijuana sales, another example of how the marijuana industry is thriving during the coronavirus pandemic. According to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC), Oregon had $106 million dollar cannabis sales in medical and recreational, marketing the third month in a row surpassing $100 million. The regulatory agency broke down sales during the COVID-19 outbreak and documented cannabis flowers had spiked during the pandemic. It was noted in February there was just under $40 million in flower sales but had climbed to nearly $65 million in July. The report shows since February, medical patients and recreational consumers have been buying more marijuana. Speculations from Beau Kilmer of the RAND Drug Policy Research Center is the increase could be because people are stocking up amid the pandemic.
