U.S. Cannabis Sales Hit Record $17.5 Billion As Americans Consume More Marijuana Than Ever Before

The coronavirus was good for some industries and ruinous for others. For cannabis, 2020 was a breakout year. Legal sales across the U.S.—14 states allow adult use, 36 allow for medical sales—hit a record of $17.5 billion, a 46% increase from 2019, according to a new report.

Most of the sales growth came from adult-use markets, especially mature markets like Colorado, which grew sales by 26% to reach $2.2 billion, and Oregon, which saw sales hit $1.1 billion, a 29% increase over 2019, according to the report published by BDSA, a cannabis sales data platform.

Emerging markets like Illinois, which expanded its medical cannabis market to include adult-use sales last year, saw the largest dollar gain in 2020, rising by $784 million. (Illinois’ cannabis market is now doing over $1 billion in sales.) California, the country’s largest cannabis economy at $3.5 billion, increased sales by $586 million, while Florida saw a $473 million increase.

Mexico To Pass Marijuana Legalization Bill Next Week, Former President Says

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox said on Friday he expected Congress to pass its new law to legalize cannabis next week, a move that would effectively create one of the world’s largest weed markets.

The bill, backed by the administration of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, would mark a major shift in a country bedeviled for years by violence between feuding drug cartels.

Fox, a director at Colombian-Canadian Khiron Life Sciences which focuses on cannabis for medical use, has been a long-standing advocate for the decriminalization of marijuana in Mexico.

WYOMING – Theodore Lasher II and business partners Hunter Smetana and Colby Kluk have opened 3BUDS Dispensary LLC, a medical hemp dispensary, on Wyoming Avenue, near the 8th Street corners.

The store sells medical hemp, CBD and Delta 8 hemp, which contains the THC, marijuana’s primary psychoactive ingredient, but is still legal in Pennsylvania.

“It all started when a bunch of us got together and said we need to provide this medicine to people since they are being provided stuff from the pharmaceutical companies that are addictive and harmful,” Lasher said. “I wanted to get out there; I

Iconic Fresno buildings could become cannabis dispensaries – YourCentralValley.com

FRESNO, California (KSEE) — As over 100 applicants in Fresno battle over 14 cannabis selling permits, some of Fresno’s iconic storefronts could be turned into dispensaries.

Applicant Kacey Auston-Tibbets has a vision of transforming the abandoned Bank of America building in the Tower District into a dispensary named Lemonade.

“This is the vault that BofA had,” said Auston-Tibbets. “We are going to utilize it for safety and security. ”

Auston-Tibbets grew up in Tower and even opened her first bank account at the same Bank of America.

“When this became available and I toured it, it brought back a flood of memories and I want to see the Tower District be the jewel of Fresno.”

Auston-Tibbets believes the old bank vault sets her plan apart from the other 100 applicants.

However, there are only 14 applications that will be chosen.

Applicants Dustin Moore and Lauren Carpenter from Sacramento put forward three proposals.

“Certainly, a tremendous amount of energy has been put into this and with that comes nervous excitement and cautious optimism of what could come next,” said Carpenter.

Fresno Cannabis Committee Chair Miguel Arias said many of the contenders are utilizing old buildings like the tower Chicken Pie Shop.
