According to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation report; the state of Illinois cannabis sales reached another record for the past month of August. The report was released on Tuesday and showed how marijuana sales in the state had been increasing each month, despite the coronavirus pandemic. Last month, consumers bought more than 1.3 million cannabis products whose value was calculated to be about $64 million. Out-of-state sales (to visitors) were recorded to be roughly $17 million. Additionally, officials from the state have stated that despite the upward trend in cannabis sales, their primary focus at the moment lies in using the tax revenue generated to reinvest in neighborhoods.
