New Mexico’s cannabis market hit a new record high in August with a sales total of $48.2 million in cannabis sales, including $34.7 million in recreational and $13.5 million in medical, according to state data.
The Land of Enchantment’s sales have been inching higher nearly every month since the recreational market came online in April 2022, and the state sold more than $300 million in adult-use cannabis in its first 12 months alone.
In July, recreational sales were just over $34 million, with medical sales at $13.6 million, for a total of $47.6 million.
