Recreational Cannabis Sales Continue To Rise In Michigan

The marijuana business has been booming in Michigan during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Detroit News reported that “weekly sales of recreational marijuana in Michigan from March 9 onward have risen significantly.” Since that day in March until this past Sunday, marijuana retailers in the state generated about $54.6 million in sales “with more than $7 million weekly total sales each week for the past four weeks,” according to the Detroit News. 

It represents a fruitful infancy for a market that was only just getting off the ground in the state. The Detroit News said that sales in the nine weeks since March 9 “now make up roughly 60% of the state’s overall sales since legal adult-use marijuana sales started Dec. 1.”

Both recreational and medical marijuana dispensaries in Michigan have been permitted to remain open during the COVID-19 outbreak, though sales have been limited to curbside pickup and delivery. Curbside pickup was adopted as a permitted practice by Michigan regulators in March, just as stay-at-home orders were being imposed throughout the country.
