Michigan’s recreational marijuana industry has seen sales soar in recent weeks.

Last week (5/4-5/10), Michiganders shelled out $7,913,328 on recreational cannabis products.  That’s the biggest sales week in the adult use industry’s brief history in the state.

Michigan voters approved recreational marijuana use in 2018. Legal sales started last December. 

Since then, the industry has rung up $91 million in sales, generating $15 million in sales and excise tax revenues. Nearly 0ne-third of those sales have been in the past four weeks.

Michigan now has 104 retailers selling recreational marijuana products. 63 are approved for home delivery. 

Michigan Radio listeners, readers, and reporters are rising to the challenge every day. If you can, please support essential journalism during this crisis.
