Connecticut Reports $24.7 Million in Legal Marijuana Sales for May

May marijuana sales in Connecticut were slightly higher than in April, reflecting a continuing trend of strong consumer demand.

The $24,713,887 in marijuana and marijuana products sold legally in May surpasses the $23.9 million sold in April and the $22.7 million sold in May 2023. This is according to data released by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection. $16.5 million of the legal marijuana sold in May was purchased for recreational use, with $8.2 million purchased by medical marijuana patients.

Sales totals include the licensed distribution of marijuana flower and shake, as well as a variety of marijuana products including edibles, tinctures, and topicals.

Total marijuana sales for 2024 now stand at around $124 million. In 2023, the yearly total came to $274 million, averaging $22.8 million a month.

Connecticut’s recreational marijuana law was passed in 2021, with the first marijuana store opening in January 2023. Under the law, those 21 and older can possess up to one and a half ounces of marijuana in public and up to five ounces in a locked container. They can also grow up to six plants for personal use, three of which can be mature.

Marijuana and marijuana products can be purchased legally through licensed marijuana retail outlets and dispensaries, which are supplied by licensed growers and processors. Legal marijuana must be tested through a licensed marijuana testing lab. Medical marijuana was first legalized in Connecticut in 2012, with dispensaries opening the following year.
