The average cost per ounce of recreational marijuana in July was $98.65. This is a noticeable jump from the $90 average in June, but still drastically lower than the $180 average when legal recreational marijuana sales first began.

Michigan voters legalized marijuana in November, 2018. The law allows those 21 and older to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and up to 15 grams of concentrate.
