Dispensary sales for May brought in over $30.96 million

Data released by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services on Friday show that sales numbers reported in April were off by over $4.5 million.

While the April sales figure still represents a single-month record, there is a stark contrast in expectations based on data that showed back to back months of +15% growth and the corrected data which shows sales growth of 15% in March and only 4% in April with the busiest sales week in program history along 420.

For May, retail sales slid, falling by 3.70% while still topping the $30 million mark for the third consecutive month. $30.96 million in May sales becomes the third-highest sales month in program history.

The Department stated there was an error in recording the sales numbers for April.
