Wow! Is it too soon to start buying shares in snack food companies?
The legalization of pot has had mixed results. Some people love it. Others, not so much.
This is due in part because it hasn’t been all sunshine and lollipops for communities that legalized cannabis use. For example.
Now, as citizen groups attempt to put the brakes on the growing industry, a heated debate has emerged about the drug’s societal impact. Doctors report a spike in pot-related emergency room visits—mostly due to people accidentally consuming too much of potent edible pot products. Police face new cartel-related drug operations. Parents worry about marijuana being sold near their homes and schools. And less affluent communities like Pueblo struggle with the unintended consequences of becoming home to this emerging and controversial industry.
Groups serving the poor in Pueblo report a flood of homeless people arriving from other states. Local homeless shelter Posada, for instance, has witnessed a 47% jump in demand since 2014, including 1,200 people who reported to shelter workers that they came to smoke pot or get jobs in the industry, says Posada’s director, Anne Stattelman. She says her funding is tapped out. “It’s changed the culture of our community,” she says.
Be that as it may, Pot use is getting ‘huge’. And the numbers are only going to get *ahem* ‘higher’.
Legal cannabis sales in 12 years are expected to outpace soft drink sales, Bloomberg News reported.
Sales from the legal U.S. cannabis industry are expected to hit $75 billion by 2030, according to the research firm Cowen & Co. The figure is almost the size of the North American soda market in 2017, Bloomberg reported.
In 2017, Forbes estimated the global cannabis market to be worth about $7.7 billion.
Why is this happening?
Cannabis use is rapidly growing as more states legalize pot, the report noted. At present, nine states and Washington, D.C. have legalized recreational pot.
That means more than 1 in 5 adult Americans can “smoke, vape, eat or drink it however they please,” Bloomberg reported.

Whether you think legalization is good or not, it’s a sad commentary on where our society is at that so many are looking to a drug to find enjoyment in life.
Are we so far gone that even our recreation is becoming passive and indulgent? It looks that way.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
