Lee’s first marijuana shop sold $3.5 million in just three months

LEE — In the first three months in business, the town’s first recreational marijuana retailer reported nearly $3.5 million in sales.

Canna Provisions, located at Housatonic Street in Lee, opened its doors in July. And as part of Canna’s community impact fee — a total of 3 percent of the quarterly retail sales — the business announced on Monday that it would be issuing a check for $109,942 to the town.

The fee is a common component of the host community agreement that’s required by the state-run Cannabis Control Commission and was originally designed to provide revenue to municipalities to help mitigate potential negative impacts of hosting a cannabis business in their community.

Meg Sanders, co-founder and CEO of Canna Provisions, said she felt that the company was hitting numbers faster than anticipated.
