It appears to be boom times in Arizona for medical marijuana sales. According to an article I was sent, medical marijuana sales topped forty million dollars this year. 2014 looks to be even brighter. Below is the article sent to me by my friends at azmarijuana.com:
A 2013 report by the Arizona Department of Health Services has revealed that over the past 12 months Arizona dispensaries have sold approximately $40 million in marijuana (including edibles). This figure ranks Arizona in the top five largest medical marijuana markets in the United States when based on annual revenues.
Currently there are 77 dispensaries operating in Arizona. That amounts to just over $500,000 in sales perdispensary; however, many of those 77 dispensaries opened in recent months. So in reality, a few Arizona dispensaries made millions, while the others just opened and might have made a few hundred thousand.
With so many dispensaries now in operation, the annual sales of marijuana are expected to increase significantly in 2014.
