Vancouver stores among top state pot sellers

Two Clark County recreational pot shops were among the top three Washington stores for sales in March, according to data released today by the state Liquor Control Board.


Vancouver’s Main Street Marijuana took the top spot, Seattle’s Uncle Ike’s came in second and Vancouver’s New Vansterdam came in third for March sales. Combined, the three stores had $3.823 million in sales for the month. (Some stores have asked me not to publish their individual sales stats for fear of break-ins, although people can still look them up on the LCB site if they’re interested).

Together, Clark County’s five retail shops sold $3,218,396 worth of marijuana in March.

Since stores statewide first opened in July 2014, Clark County retailers have sold $12.1 million worth of marijuana and collected $3.3 million in excise tax.

King County, in comparison, which includes Seattle, has sold $22.4 million worth of marijuana and collected $7 million in excise tax.

Statewide, stores have sold $89 million so far and collected $34 million in excise tax.

Fairwinds Manufacturing, Agrijuana and CannaMan Farms also ranked the top three grower/processors in Clark County, respectively, in March.

Statewide, the top three processors were Grow Op Farms (maker of the Phat Panda brand), The Goodship Company (which makes edibles) and Bmf Washington (which makes JuJu Joints).
