Marijuana is becoming a huge industry in Michigan, how big?  According to the latest numbers Michigan's total marijuana sales for 2021 was approximately one billion eight hundred million dollars ($1,800,000,000).

The $1,800,000,000 dollars in sales brought in an additional $246,657,520 to Michigan's Treasury.  Those taxes are all new taxes that were not there in prior years.  The question I have is what is the state spending those funds on?

As a side note does it surprise anyone that the only category of marijuana sales that declined last year was the sale of medical marijuana? According to recent data medical sales fell a whopping 20% in 2021.
