Pot sales edge up in sputtering start for Canada’s legal market


Canadians bought $55 million (Canadian) of marijuana in the second full month of legal sales, a modest beginning for a market investors anticipate will become a multi-billion dollar industry. Sales rose 3.7 percent in December from November’s initial tally of $53 million, Statistics Canada said Friday in a broader report on retail sales. The December sales bring the total since the market was legalized on Oct. 17 to $152 million.
