Does the US Have an Efficient Cannabis Market Already? – First Day Cannabis Sales in Connecticut Barely Break $300,000

The state’s cannabis market is starting small, with only seven existing medical marijuana dispensaries being granted licenses to sell recreational marijuana as “hybrid retailers.” These dispensaries, located in Branford, Meriden, Montville, New Haven, Newington, Stamford, and Willimantic, opened their doors to recreational customers on Tuesday morning. By 5 p.m., the seven shops had sold $359,130 worth of cannabis products to recreational customers, according to the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection.
