Nevada Cannabis Sales Reach Record High, But There Is Still Room To Grow

Although cannabis businesses were deemed essential across many states during the COVID-19 pandemic, the global crisis still affected the industry. Now, as the pandemic is seemingly coming under control and things are slowly starting to get back to normal, we can expect to see changes in market trends as well.

Cantor Fitzgerald’s Pablo Zuanic looked at those trends in the state of Nevada where adult-use cannabis was legalized in 2017 and sales began in July of that year. In 1998 and 2000, a pair of ballot measures legalized medical marijuana.

Record Sales, High Annual Revenues Per Store
Cannabis sales hit record highs in March of this year, $97 million, with more growth expected as tourist activities begin to pick up, Zuanic noted, though he pointed out that visitor volumes are still around 30% lower than April 2019 levels.

Black Entrepreneurs Behind Cannabis Brand GasHouse Make Their Mark On The Industry

As the world’s largest regulated cannabis market, California is for many the pinnacle of participation in the legalized marijuana industry. For decades, the state has had a rich tradition of cannabis culture, supplying much of the country and beyond with prime bud bred and cultivated by underground growers. But getting into the game isn’t easy. Most of the local governments in the state have banned commercial cannabis, and many of the jurisdictions that welcome the industry have strict caps on the number of licenses issued.

In concert with pervasive social constructs, these barriers to entry have resulted people of color being strikingly underrepresented in one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States. Efforts to address the issue have so far failed to produce solid results. A social equity program in Los Angeles designed to ensure participation in the cannabis industry by members of communities disproportionately impacted by the War on Drugs, for example, is mired in controversy and delay. And previous rounds of cannabis company licensing in the city resulted in only six of the nearly 200 medical marijuana retailers being operated by Black entrepreneurs, according to Virgil Grant of the California Minority Alliance.

Spike In Sales ExpectedAt Massachusetts Dispensaries After CT, RI Legalize Pot – Daily Voice

Marijuana dispensaries in Massachusetts are expecting a surge in sales as residents in neighboring states that recently legalized recreational weed wait to begin selling at retail stores.

This week, both Connecticut and Rhode Island signed bills into law to legalize recreational marijuana sales for eligible adults.

However, with retail shops not yet open in those states, many are reportedly flocking to Massachusetts to purchase their pot, where it has been legal for several years.

According to reports, some pot shops have said that upwards of 35 percent of their business comes from buyers from nearby states, specifically Connecticut while they await retailers to begin selling.

Holyoke Cannabis marketing manager Jacob Black told NBC Connecticut that “Probably at the moment 35 percent of our business is out of state because we are so close to the Connecticut border,” noting that the crowd from the Nutmeg State could begin growing as soon as next week.

Little Rock medical-cannabis outlet approved to move a few miles – Arkansas Online

State regulators on Tuesday approved a Little Rock medical-marijuana dispensary’s move a few miles west.

Good Day Farm LLC will move from 900 S. Rodney Parham Road to 11600 Chenal Parkway.

Co-owner Alex Gray told the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission that the Rodney Parham Road site is “a stone’s throw” from another dispensary, Herbology, which is at 7303 Kanis Road.

He said the dispensary’s move will relax some of the congestion in that area and allow it to serve the west Little Rock, Chenal and Pleasant Valley neighborhoods.

Gray said after the meeting that the business hopes to open the new outlet Nov. 1.

Good Day Farm was formerly known as Capital City Medicinals. Medical marijuana commissioners received formal notice of its name change, which they are not required to approve, at Tuesday’s regular meeting.

The business has sold more than 600 pounds since opening in February 2020, according to numbers provided by commission spokesman Scott Hardin last week.

Medical cannabis is a more than $330 million industry in Arkansas, with patients purchasing more than 50,000 pounds since the first dispensaries opened their doors a little over two years ago.

There are 33 dispensaries in operation in the state, and
