LANSING, Mich. (FOX 2) - Continued growth of Michigan's marijuana industry is paying dividends with the state sending out just shy of $60 million to counties and local governments.

Local governments that have approved the recreational sale of weed in their county, city, village, or township will see approximately $51,800 for every retail store and micro-business that it's handed out licenses to.

Only 30% of total adult-use sales go to local governments, with the other 70% going to schools and roads. When contributions from last year are paired next to figures from 2021 and 2020, they show an industry that shows no signs of slowing down.
