MICHIGAN (CBS DETROIT) – It’s been nearly four months since recreational marijuana became legal in Michigan and pot shops say business is booming despite the pandemic.

Right now due to state rules, they only allow curbside or home delivery.

According to The Detroit News some dispensaries see a long line of cars to pick up their orders.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs says recreational sales jumped 20 percent the week of March 16.

As of last week, recreational marijuana made more than $30-million in sales since legalization.

    Dear Governor Whitmer :

    $6 million dollars in Michigan Marijuana Excise Tax was available last month !

    The money is eventually – paid to ALL Michigan Communities and Schools.

    * Please Release the EXISTING pool of excise money now?
    * Change Annual payout of the marijuana tax money to Monthly?
    * News media could report how Marijuana Money is directly helping communities every month?

    Our grandparents in small towns DO NOT have grocery delivery or take out food options.

    Communities will respond to this latest crisis but PLEASE release the excise Tax as soon as possible

    Thank you for the great job !
