On Friday, October 9th, recreational marijuana sales began in Maine. According to the Office of Marijuana Policy, half a dozen marijuana shops across the state reported $94,643 in sales. The preliminary data was reported Saturday afternoon by David Heidrich, director of engagement and community outreach for the Office of Marijuana Policy. Nine retail stores are now licensed to sell recreational cannabis in Maine, but only six opened Friday because of a shortage of legally tagged, tested, and taxed adult-use cannabis.
