New Canada sales data shows that there was $389.9 million in legal marijuana sold in September, a 12% increase from September, 2021.
The 389.9 million Canadian dollars ($291 million) worth of legal marijuana sold in September exactly matches the amount of legal marijuana and marijuana products sold in August, according to the national data agency Statistics Canada.
