Cannabis Funds Coming to County

January 10th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

State Comptroller Brooke Lierman has announced Community Repair and Reinvestment Fund allocations for counties across the state. The fund allocates a portion of tax revenue generated from the sales of adult-use cannabis directly to communities disproportionately affected by prior cannabis prohibition enforcement.  Maryland collected over $12 million in cannabis sales tax revenue between July and September.  Allegany County will receive 1.043% or $44,378. Uses for the money include mental health and substance abuse services, education, and housing and homelessness prevention services.
