Three dispensaries together sold about $59.7 million worth of cannabis
As the state begins taking applications this month to run six additional medical marijuana dispensaries, figures show the existing three dispensaries enjoyed another record-breaking year for sales.
For the fiscal year that ended June 31, the three dispensaries together sold about $59.7 million worth of medicinal marijuana, reports the state Department of Business Regulation.
That estimate is based on the 4% surcharge the state imposes (on top of the 7% sales tax) on dispensary purchases.
In fiscal year 2019, the dispensaries sold about $53.5 million — which was then about $15.3 million more in marijuana sales than the previous fiscal year.
