Ah, the sweet aroma of financial reports infused with cannabis transactions! The Department of Consumer Protection, unveiled the mystifying figures of October’s shenanigans in the weed-selling wonderland. Let us stroll through the twisted walkways of the CT greenery🌳 and numbers!
As per the ‘official’ numbers spewed out by the Department, the total haul from October 1st to October 31st in 2023 was a staggering $25 million.💸 Yes, that’s right, a ‘mere’ $25 million 💵 from people blissfully indulging in adult-use and medical marijuana. The adult-use partakers chipped in a respectable $14.7 million,🤑 while the medical patients contributed $10.1 million.💰
In the purchasing arena, it was a wild frenzy! Medical marijuana patients, wielding their CT registrations like federal agents with a badge, snagged a total of 277,552 products. Meanwhile, the free-spirited 👻 adult-use enthusiasts bought up 393,642 items. Now, let’s dissect the numbers, shall we? The average product price for the medically sanctioned bliss was $36.43, whereas the high-rolling adult-use merchandise cashed in at $37.61. Oh, the economics of being legally altered!
Wait, the drama doesn’t end there! Hold your breath as we unveil the mind-bending proportions of what got folks buzzing. Apparently, 51 percent of these transactions were for the all-powerful weed, or what the uninitiated call ‘flower.’ Then, there were the ‘vapes,’ accounting for 31 percent, as if things weren’t foggy 😶🌫️ enough! And lest we forget, the ‘edibles’ 🧁 had a dignified 11 percent, adding a tasty twist to the tale.
Oh, but let’s not get too carried away with these numbers people. The Department, in its infinite wisdom, reminds us that they don’t do revenue forecasts, set sales expectations, regulate prices, or collect taxes. It’s like a carnival 🎡 where everyone’s juggling but no one knows where the balls 🏀 should land.
And hold your horses! Before you start calculating🧮 your share of taxes, remember, this preliminary data doesn’t include taxes from adult-use transactions. Medical marijuana patients, skip the tax ordeal altogether. It’s like a bizarre game show where the rules change every round!
In the end, remember, these numbers are as wobbly as a first-time surfer.🏄♂️ Subject to ‘further review,’ they say. One might wonder, is it the weed that’s hazy, or is it these numbers? Who’s to say?
There you have it, folks, a peek into the fantastical world of cannabis commerce, where numbers dance like drunk clowns 🤡 and the rules seem as flexible as spaghetti. Until next time, keep toking and let the numbers do their dance!💃
Keep it weird. Like dancing numbers…
