State officials projected dispensaries would sell $21 million of recreational marijuana in August, but actual sales blew right past that prediction. The Nevada Department of Taxation reports there were $34 million in sales in August, exceeding the $27 million from the debut month of July. The two major state recreational pot taxes have raked in $8.6 million so far; most of that will go to the state’s rainy day reserve fund, with some wholesale tax going to regulate marijuana and any leftovers going to education.
