This represents a $5.6 million decrease from the previous quarter and $7.1 million less than the same time last year.

The latest numbers, courtesy of the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration, mark a 35% decline since the peak in sales in mid-2021.

Despite the decline, San Francisco remains a leader in per capita cannabis sales. During the first three months of 2024, there was $55 in cannabis sales per resident, a high consumption rate compared to other parts of the state.

With Senate Bill 915, the state’s bigger cities would have the ability to regulate autonomous vehicle services such as Waymo’s in ways they can’t with Uber

Historically, San Francisco's per capita cannabis sales were nearly four times higher than those in San Diego and Los Angeles. However, recent data shows a narrowing gap. San Francisco's current per capita sales are now only 50% higher than San Diego’s and twice as high as Los Angeles’s.

Both San Diego and Los Angeles saw increases in sales during 2020 and 2021 before plateauing, while San Francisco has continued to decline since its peak.

This decline in San Francisco's taxable cannabis sales comes as daily marijuana use among Americans has become more common than daily alcohol use, according to recent research
