NORTHAMPTON — In the second week of retail marijuana sales, the state’s only two recreational pot shops brought in just under $2.6 million in gross sales.

That figure — released Monday by the Cannabis Control Commission — tops the first five days of sales, which saw customers spend $2.2 million. In total, gross sales have hit $4.8 million since Nov. 20, when New England Treatment Access in Northampton and Cultivate in Leicester opened their doors to adult customers.

The second week of sales saw a total of 65,196 “units” of marijuana sold, averaging around three units per transaction, according to the data. Customers spent an average of $39.68 per unit during the second week.

Northampton has levied a 3 percent local tax on recreational marijuana.
