The US cannabis industry is growing insanely fast — there are now more legal cannabis workers than dental hygienists

Total spending on legal cannabis is expected to skyrocket to over $21 billion by 2021 for all US consumers, the BDS report says. Factoring in "indirect effects" of legal cannabis revenue, such as transactions between cannabis companies and businesses in other industries (like shipping, packaging, payroll processing, etc.), BDS Analytics expects legalized cannabis to inject close to $40 billion into the US economy by 2021, and add up to 413,988 jobs. — If marijuana were to become legal in all 50 states, a new report from cannabis industry research firm New Frontier Data estimates that the industry could add over $130 billion to US tax coffers by 2021.

Recreational Cannabis Fires Up North American Publishers

Widespread interest in legalized #cannabis has fired up the North American #publishing world to the tune of functioning cannabis-focused magazines in the double digits, covering topics that range from the street-smart to the Wall Street-smart. Indeed, in the spring of 2017 the longest surviving and undisputed top pot periodical, the over 40 year-old High Times (HT) had been sold to a private equity firm for $42 million. It's a leading voice in the cannabis world.

End the War on Weed
Federal marijuana laws are counterproductive and overly harsh

Like the failed Nixon-era War on Drugs, this resurgent war on #marijuana is ill informed and misguided. Evidence suggests that cannabis—though not without its risks—is less harmful than legal substances such as alcohol and nicotine.

►In 1970 the Controlled Substances Act established marijuana as a Schedule I drug, “with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.”

A 2015 study that compared the toxicological threshold of marijuana for risk to human health with that of other drugs found that alcohol posed the highest risk, followed by heroin, cocaine and nicotine. Marijuana was among the lowest. In addition, there is some evidence that pot may serve as a safe alternative to other drugs of abuse, including heroin and other #opioids

The #marijuana industry is growing by leaps and bounds, and over the past two-plus years, cannabis #stocks have reflected this growth. In many instances, pot stocks are up more than 1,000% since the beginning of 2016.

Behind these enormous gains are some rapidly growing sales figures and a discernible shift in the public's opinion toward pot.

In terms of sales, #cannabis research firm ArcView believes that, following a 33% increase in North American legal cannabis sales, to $9.7 billion in 2017, total North American sales could top $47 billion in a decade. That's a growth rate that investors simply can't overlook.

Large Study Finds Places With Legal #Marijuana Issue Fewer #Opioid Prescriptions

As more states legalize medical and recreational marijuana, doctors may be replacing opioid prescriptions with suggestions to visit a local marijuana dispensary. Two papers published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine analyzing more than five years of Medicare Part D and Medicaid prescription data found that after states legalized weed, the number of opioid prescriptions and the daily dose of opioids went way down.

Poll: Older People Support #MedicalMarijuana Not Full Legalizaiton

A poll in February for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) revealed some wariness among older voters for fully legalized #marijuana with 49% of people over the age of 65 opposed and 46% in favor.

When the demographic is 50 or older, the support for legalization grows to 46% while opposition is 42%.

But overall, the poll of 600 Michigan voters revealed 61% backing the proposal and among younger voters, the support was through the roof with 87% of people between the ages of 18 and 34 backing the legalization proposal.

According To Poll 94% of Americans Favor #MedicalMarijuana

The public’s attitude regarding #cannabis is evolving. In April 2017, a Quinnipiac poll found that 94 percent of Americans favor, “allowing adults to legally use #marijuana for medical purposes if their doctor prescribes it.”


►This same poll found that 73 percent opposed government interference into states that have legalized marijuana; basically, three out of every four Americans are against the federal government enforcing cannabis prohibition laws in states that have legalized some form of marijuana use.

Conservatives, Democrats, Progressives, Libertarians, and others across the political spectrum support a change in cannabis policy.

#Video #Poll shows 94% of Americans support legalization of #MedicalMarijuana. Last year the #cannabis industry in general generated $9 BILLION in sales and employed over 121 THOUSAND people! By 2021 it is estimated that over 300 THOUSAND people will be employed in the #Cannabiz — Imagine if the Feds dropped their Reefer Madness stance and #LegalizeIt

The 10 best cannabis jobs you probably haven’t considered And you don’t even have to live in a legal state.

There’s a whole sector of #cannabis jobs known as “ancillary services,” where employees work in and around the cannabis space, but typically don’t have to touch the plant. Therefore, these #jobs are available across the U.S., not just in legal states. Plus, many of these cannabis jobs allow you to work from home.

Cannabis is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. In fact, over 150,000 people have cannabis jobs in America alone.

According to an estimate from New Frontier Data, if the U.S. federally legalized cannabis, it would create 1.1 million cannabis jobs by 2025 and would yield $131.8 billion in federal tax revenue.
