Canadians spent $41 million on weed in first month after legalization

  • Canadians bought $54 million Canadian ($41 million) of marijuana from stores in the first full month after sales were legalized, some of the clearest evidence yet of the market’s potential.
  • Canada’s figure for November released Wednesday follows an earlier estimate that sales were $43 million Canadian in the first two weeks following legalization on Oct. 17.
  • The Ottawa-based agency added cannabis to standard monthly reports on retail sales as part of wider effort to update the nation’s economic accounts.

“Retail figures will vary as new stores continue to come on line and the marketplace continues to evolve,” the agency’s report said.

The potential for a market worth between $5.5 billion Canadian and $10 billion Canadian a year created a boom in the value of producers such as Canopy Growth Corp. and Aurora Cannabis Inc. Canada became the first Group of Seven nation to legalize the drug as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said prohibition was a failed system that gave profits to criminal gangs and allowed rampant youth consumption.
