States collected $3.77 billion in recreational marijuana sales and excise tax revenue in 2022, about 2% less than the year before, according to a report released Monday by the Marijuana Policy Project, a Washington, D.C.-based group that advocates for legalizing cannabis.
Last year was the first time recreational marijuana tax revenue fell compared to a prior year since legal sales began in 2014, the report said. States use marijuana tax revenue to help fund schools, drug treatment, law enforcement and other services.
