Recreational marijuana sales began in two Massachusetts cities on November 20. Only two dispensaries have opened, but three more recreational retailers have been approved to open.
The first day of sales totaled $440,000, according to WCVB 5 News. In the first five days, the stores brought in over $2.2 million.
Since opening, NETA, one of the dispensaries, reports serving about 2,000 customers daily.
Amanda Rositano of NETA said, “I think this is such a historic moment where adults can finally purchase cannabis legally that I think there’s so much excitement around it.”
Medical marijuana patients do have an advantage by not having to wait in the long line as recreational customers.
