Legal marijuana sales in Spokane County top $1 million last month

Legal marijuana sales in Spokane County top $1 million last month

Kip Hill The Spokesman-Review December 10, 2014

Consumers spent $1 million last month on legal marijuana in Spokane County, the first time recreational sales eclipsed that mark since shops opened this summer.

While market shares have tumbled for many of the county’s early openers, overall sales continued to rise in November as the nascent industry grabs a foothold in the market. Customers at the county’s eight pot shops spent 22 percent more on recreational marijuana last month than they did in August.

Sales figures reported to the Washington Liquor Control Board have local officials jockeying for a piece of the growing tax revenue pie, while shop owners scramble for customers who have more options.

After enjoying a summer of relative sales dominance, Spokane County’s first recreational marijuana shop has seen its market share dip, according to sales figures tracked by the Liquor Control Board.
