Illinois set yet another marijuana sales record in January, with nearly $89 million in adult-use cannabis purchases in the first month of 2021. Pandemic notwithstanding, people are still flocking to marijuana retailers one year after legal sales launched. The state has generally seen this upward trend in cannabis purchases since the market went online. Of the $88 million spent on nearly 1.9 million adult-use marijuana products last month, more than $25 million came from out-of-state visitors, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation said in an updated notice on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Department of Public Health separately reported on Wednesday that the state’s medical cannabis program saw nearly $33 million in sales in January.
