The smoke has cleared, and the numbers are in
On Tuesday, the first day of legal marijuana sales in Massachusetts, consumers spent a total of $440,011 at two stores on more than 10,700 individual cannabis products, according to data released by the state Cannabis Control Commission Wednesday afternoon.
The products, purchased at the first two stores to open, ranged from marijuana flower to pot concentrates to pre-rolled joints to edibles infused with THC, the main psychoactive compound in cannabis.
The state will take a 17 percent cut — through a combination of the regular 6.25 percent sales tax and a 10.75 percent excise tax on marijuana — which for the first day of sales amounts to about $74,800.
