CAN (AB): StatsCan, Alberta sees most money spent on cannabis since legalization

Albertans have spent the most money on cannabis since it was legalized last fall, according to new numbers from Statistics Canada.

New data from Statistics Canada published Monday looked at the amount sold at cannabis retail stores — broken down by province and territory — between October 2018 and June 2019.

Over that period of time, the most money was spent in Alberta, with $123.7 million spent on legal pot. That’s the most spent in any province or territory across Canada.

Ontario came in second, with $121.6 million spent on legal cannabis. Quebec followed, with $119.2 million spent. The Northwest Territories saw the least amount of money spent on legal cannabis at $1.47 million.
