Medical marijuana brings in $10m for Michigan
As marijuana legalization supporters have long noted, measures to permit the sale of either medical or recreational marijuana promise to bring substantial windfalls to whatever state enacts them. Michigan's legalization of medical marijuana proves as much.
According to the Detroit Free Press, "a report says nearly $10 million in revenue was collected from applicants — more than double the cost of running the program. The report covers the state's last budget year, which ended Sept. 30."
To register as a marijuana user in the state, individuals must pay $100, while those who grow medical marijuana must also pay a fee to the state.
