April showered Illinois marijuana retailers with sales.
Statewide cannabis dispensaries reported nearly $115 million in recreational pot purchases last month, another record for the expanding market, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The latest total is about $6 million more in sales than pot shops had rung up in March, which was itself a record, according to data from the state Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
Medical marijuana sales were not reported.
The state’s 110 licensed dispensaries recorded about $80 million in recreational pot items sold to Illinois residents, with $35 million from out-of-state buyers, the Tribune reported.
In the first year that recreational weed was legalized, the state recorded over $1 billion in purchases. That number is expected to go higher this year.
