AZ Marijuana Patient

The Arizona Department of Health Services’ (ADHS) annual medical marijuana program report shows that Arizona patients bought nearly 106 tons (211,556 lbs) of medical marijuana in 2020.

“Consider, that’s the equivalent of about 423,000 eight-ounce bags of Cheetos,” Howard Fischer noted via “Or for those whose culinary hankerings are less salt-inclined, it’s nearly 2.2 million regular-size Hershey bars and almost 2.5 million packages of Twinkies.”

There were 295,295 active medical marijuana cardholders in 2020. Maricopa county had the vast majority of those cardholders.

  • Maricopa County: 196,397
  • Pima County: 39,490
  • Pinal County: 17,602
  • Yavapai County: 12,268
  • Coconino County: 6,220
  • Mohave County: 6,176

If “an ounce of average weed goes for $200 — and there’s a whole lot of variables there — that’s more than $675 million expended in 2020 on medical marijuana,” Fischer stated.
