As the state of Michigan continues to rake in money from the sale of recreational marijuana, many people in the state wonder why it is that the cannabis products they buy aren't decreasing in price. For those who shop for marijuana often, it may seem that the cost of cannabis products is too high and stays that way over time. Compared to the price of marijuana in other states where it is legal, it's true that Michigan can be more expensive, especially when compared with states like Colorado or Oregon. These states have well established recreational marijuana programs and plenty of supply to feed the market after years of working out the kinks in the system.

Expungement of cannabis related convictions was an important issue for candidates during the most recent Governor's election, and in October 2020, a law was passed by the Governor to help expunge convictions for cannabis related offenses that occurred prior to 2018. This does not mean that everyone who has a prior conviction for marijuana related offenses will have their record expunged. Those with criminal records will have to apply to have charges expunged and wait for a response from the state.
