Weed sales expected to surpass wine during holidays

Americans now have another color to focus on for the Fourth of July besides the traditional red, white, and blue. That would be pungent shades of green, as in cannabis. During the holiday week, legal marijuana sales jumped to $400 million nationwide, which is 60 percent above average, according to sales data.

Put simply, Independence Day staples like burgers and beer might have a new friend in bud. As data collected by Akerna Corp shows, each day leading up to Fourth of July experienced above-average sales spikes when compared to national averages for the day in question. For example, on Monday, July 1, dispensaries enjoyed a 45% increase in sales when contrasted with a typical day of sales on a Monday.

Hawaii has decriminalized marijuana

Hawaii on Tuesday decriminalized marijuana, making it the 26th state to decriminalize or legalize the drug.

The new law removes the possibility of jail time as a penalty for up to three grams of marijuana, but maintains a $130 fine. Hawaii’s Democrat-controlled legislature approved the bill and sent it to Democratic Gov. David Ige in May. Ige didn’t sign it, but he also didn’t veto it, effectively letting it become law on Tuesday. The new law will take effect on January 11, 2020.

Is legal weed necessarily safe weed?

With legal cannabis access expanding in the United States, it’s safe to assume that the pot you buy is on the up and up, right?

In most cases, yes, but too many continue to fail tests and go misrepresented on the market. This can range from flower being moldy to mislabeled. In other cases, flower can be contaminated. In recent years, tests of products resulted in failures for a slew of products. This includes a 2018 occurrence when nearly a fifth of California’s cannabis products failed testing.
