Ontario Canada Cannabis Sales More Than Doubled After Stores Started To Open

In April, Ontarians spent $1.36 per person on legal cannabis

Legal cannabis sales more than doubled in Ontario in April, after stores started to open, data released Friday by Statistics Canada shows.

Ontario was the only province to only offer online cannabis sales until April 1, when a handful of stores opened.

Under the online system, sales ranged between $7 million and $8 million a month. With even a few stores opening, that number quickly soared, reaching $19.6 million for April.

On a per capita basis, Ontarians spent between 50 and 60 cents a month on legal cannabis from December through March, but $1.36 in April.

That still puts Ontario’s per capita cannabis sales at the second-lowest in Canada (in terms of dollars spent, Ontario sales are now Canada’s highest, passing Quebec and Alberta in April).
