The first two commercial pot shops to open in Massachusetts reportedly sold more than $2.2 million worth of marijuana products in their first week of operation.

Stores in Northampton and Leicester sold more than 56,000 marijuana products in their first five days of business, figures from the Cannabis Control Commission showed.

Both shops reported selling a combined $440,000 worth of cannabis on their first day, according to The Hill.

The shops also saw their busiest day on Black Friday, when they reported more than $480,000 in gross sales, The Hill reported.

There wasn’t much joy, however, in Leicester, where some residents were frustrated by the surge in traffic generated by the pot shop in the small central Massachusetts town, CBS News reported.

City leaders held an emergency town meeting earlier this week to address residents’ complaints about traffic jams and other issues following the store's opening, the news outlet reported.

According to The Hill, with the new openings, Massachusetts has become the seventh state in the country to allow marijuana to be sold in retail settings and the only state to do so in the eastern United States.
