Over $1B Sold of Cannabis in Illinois Since Legalization

SPRINGFIELD – Licensed legal cannabis stores have sold more than $1 billion of cannabis since the drug was legalized in January 2020.

April sales jumped nearly $6 million from March to nearly $115 million dollars sold. But, that’s not as large of a monthly increase as was experienced with March’s $109 million in sales.

That was nearly $30 million more than February.

Taxes collected by the state on total sales from January 2020 to March this year is $261.6 million.
