Marijuana sales are growing rapidly in Arizona.

Arizonans with medical-marijuana cards bought 61 tons of the drug last year

The quantity of marijuana being sold is growing faster than the number of patients

The fastest growth is in marijuana concentrates and edibles

Sales of medical marijuana surged 42 percent in Arizona last year, with patients buying 61 tons of the plant, edibles and other products at licensed dispensaries, according to a new state report.

The Arizona Department of Health Services no longer provides dollar estimates in its monthly sales reports. But based on the retail prices advertised by major dispensaries in the Phoenix area, the industry took in more than $400 million in revenue for the year, not including sales of pipes and other non-drug merchandise.
