In one Washington county, legal marijuana is the literally hottest thing since sliced bread.

Spokane, Washington, people spent more of their hard-earned cash on legal cannabis in 2015 than they did on bread, wine, or milk. The county reportedly spent a shade over $43 million according to data compiled by the state’s Liquor and Cannabis Board.

Those numbers translate to an average of $225.64 spent on marijuana per household in 2015. Conversely, beer barely beat out cannabis with $232.70 per household.

Thereafter, it was all Kush as wine sales averaged $154.85 per household, milk sales averaged $155.37 and bread sales averaged $109.71. Those figures come courtesy of the Census Bureau.

The big takeaway here is that as America becomes healthier and eschews liquor, fast food, and sugar for a healthier lifestyle, marijuana has cemented itself as part of that healthy lifestyle. And that’s only going up.
