Arkansas has recorded approximately $218.1 million in medical marijuana sales since 2019, according to the latest Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission revenue report.
Total medical marijuana sales have increased by more than $17 million in the past month. In the previous revenue report, released in December 2020, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission disclosed that Arkansas dispensaries had $200.7 million in total sales. This is an increase of $17.4 million in the past month.
Part of this increase was due to a record sales day on Dec. 31, 2020. Sales exceeded $1.22 million on the last day of 2020, compared to average sales of $665,000 per day.
There have been 33,189 pounds of medical marijuana sold through Jan. 11, 2021 since dispensaries began legally operating in Arkansas. This is an increase of 2,541 pounds sold since the previous revenue report was released in December 2020.
