About a week after opening, sales are going strong at the first two businesses in Massachusetts allowed to sell recreational marijuana.
The two stores sold more than $2.2 million worth of cannabis products during the first five days they were open for business, according to figures released Tuesday by the Cannabis Control Commission.
New England Treatment Access (NETA) in Northampton and Cultivate in Leicester began operations Nov. 20, and combined, they sold $440,000 worth of cannabis that day.
The busiest day was the day after Thanksgiving, when the stores reported nearly $480,000 in gross sales. The stores were closed for the holiday.
