Why cannabis could be a key part of Shopify's growth

The cannabis industry is growing at a fast pace, and one company that could stand to benefit a lot is Shopify (NYSE:SHOP). While it doesn't sell or grow any cannabis, many companies are using the platform for online pot sales.

For me, this happened when a dog rescue agency announced they would be coming by to check out my apartment — which, of course, was the final step in adopting the pup of my dreams.

Global demand for cannabis has been exceptionally explosive.  In fact, at current pace, research firm, BDS Analytics says U.S. sales of CBD products alone could grow from $1.9 billion in 2018 to more than $20 billion by 2024.  That's opening a wide range of opportunities for retailers, and it's also forcing many of those same retailers online.

Will I need to keep using medical marijuana forever?

You wouldn’t need to use cannabis any longer than you would need to use other forms of medication or treatment for whatever condition it is that’s ailing you.

How long is too long to be taking prescribed medication? It’s a question that’s not so easy to answer.

Some medications are meant for short-term use, others are intended for long-term use, and some fall somewhere in between. But what about medical marijuana? Once you become a patient, how long should you expect to keep using cannabis?

Juul stops advertising e-cigarettes and replaces CEO with tobacco executive

Juul Labs is halting all U.S. advertising of its e-cigarettes and replacing its CEO amid a nationwide backlash against vaping.

The largest e-cigarette maker also said Wednesday it won’t fight a sweeping ban on flavors proposed by the Trump administration to reverse a surge in underage vaping.
