We'd expect California to be the top state in the nation when it comes to legal cannabis sales. That used to be the case.

But now Michigan, as it approaches its fifth anniversary of legal sales of recreational pot, has surpassed California as the top state in the U.S. for cannabis sales, the Detroit Free Press reports, citing cannabis market intelligence firms.

The Freep reports: 

For example, since December 2022, Michigan has sold more total grams of flower and units of other cannabis products (called equivalent unit sales) in both the recreational and medical market compared with California, according to data from BDSA, a cannabis market intelligence firm that tracks sales via point-of-sale data from a panel of participating cannabis retailers.

Another cannabis market intelligence firm, Headset, shows Michigan selling more units than California (defined as a single item that a customer buys, such as a pre-rolled joint, a multipack of pre-rolled joints, a jar of flower or a pack of gummies) since June 2023. Its data shows that in May, Michigan sold 24.2 million units, while California sold 17.3 million units.
