The recreational numbers for May 2017 were released by the LCB this weekend. The total sales of all Washington marijuana companies (producer, processors, and retailers) was $119,847,704. When you add the additional $27,683,477 in excise tax paid by consumers, a staggering $147,531,181 was the total figure of marijuana sales across the ecosystem.
Even more impressive – this represents a 48.68% increase versus May of 2016. This is nearly identical to the 48% sales growth in Colorado from March 2016-March 2017 as reported by the Cannabist.
