Illinois has done it again, breaking another monthly marijuana sales record with nearly 2.5 million cannabis items purchased in April. All told, residents and out-of-state visitors bought $114,961,668 worth of adult-use marijuana last month. That’s about $5 million more than in March, which itself broke the previous record. Illinois residents accounted for $79,909,284 of the April sales, while visitors purchased $35,052,383 in cannabis products. Illinois took in more tax dollars from marijuana than alcohol for the first time last quarter, the state Department of Revenue reported last month. From January to March, Illinois generated about $86,537,000 in adult-use marijuana tax revenue, compared to $72,281,000 from liquor sales.
