Much appreciated Dawne! Interesting to see how sales fluctuate over time. Do you think the negative changes from last year are due to prices for cannabis falling, or demand for cannabis falling?

This informations is gathered from the mandatory state reporting. It is gathered and disseminated by several groups from the POS systems that report for the state.

There is probably a small 1-2 point margin of error but overall what we have seen with many of our Oregon businesses it is pretty on point.
