Michigan had its highest weekly adult-use marijuana sales total to date last week with $2.59 million, the Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA), which provides state oversight over the industry.
Michigan voters in November 2018 legalized pot for recreational use, but it has only been sold in stores since Dec. 1, 2019. There are now 65 licenses issued for adult-use marijuana establishments, the MRA reports, with three new licenses granted last week.
From Jan. 13 to 19, marijuana sales generated $259,055 in excise tax and $170,976 in sales tax.
Since Dec. 1, there has been:
- $12.7 million in total adult-use sales
- $1.3 million in excise tax
- $836,946 in sales tax
- $2.1 million in combined excise and sales taxes
