It’s no secret that British Columbians enjoy cannabis, but now there are some numbers to back it up.
Statistics Canada has released the breakdown of each province’s monthly cannabis spending, and BC has been showing some serious love to its cannabis retail industry.
According to StatsCan, $23.645 million in cannabis was sold in the province by retailers. A very slight decrease from the $23.699 million it sold in April. This dip of just over $50,000 is only the second time there has been a drop in monthly total dollar sales since cannabis was legalized in October 2018.
