Michigan could gain millions in tax revenue in legal marijuana market – Cannabis News
LANSING — A fully developed legal market for medical marijuana in Michigan could lead to millions of dollars in new state tax revenue.

New regulations for the state's medical marijuana industry, signed by Gov. Rick Snyder and taking effect in December (though a licensing system won't be active until December 2017), will require a 3 percent excise tax on dispensaries' gross sales receipts.
