Aside from the more than $42.2 million in disbursements to municipalities and counties, $49.3 million was sent to the School Aid Fund for K-12 education and another $49.3 million to the Michigan Transportation Fund. In total, more than $1.1 billion in adult-use marijuana sales was reported for the fiscal year 2021. 

MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo was happy with the revenue results, saying, “It’s rewarding to see that the agency’s balanced regulatory approach is effectively protecting consumers while still allowing Michigan businesses to grow and thrive. The funding provided directly to local governments, and the thousands of jobs created across the state, show that Michigan is leading the way in the cannabis industry.”
