  • Clinton County's lone licensed dispensary brought over $59,000 in tax revenue

Just off the side of Highway 69 is the Flora Cannabis Company's site in Bath that just two months ago celebrated its first anniversary.

The only adult-use cannabis dispensary in Clinton County received more than $59,000. So far commissioners haven't discussed what to do with the funds, according to a county official.

It's part of the financial impact that the state's legal weed has had in our neighborhoods in the last fiscal year.
