Michigan’s recreational marijuana industry poised to grow exponentially in 2020

Marijuana, a plant derided by government and much of society for the better part of the last century, received a hearty welcome-back from Michigan in 2019.

When marijuana prohibition in Michigan ended and the doors to first few licensed recreational marijuana shops in Ann Arbor opened to customers on Dec. 1, some lines stretched nearly a quarter-mile.

Demand for legal, licensed, store-bought marijuana has been brimming in the shadows of the black market for years, Marijuana Regulatory Agency Director Andrew Brisbo in late December told a room of entrepreneurs, lawyers, accountants, real estate agents and other professionals eager for a seat in the fledgling industry.

3 Cannabis stocks that made Santa's nice list

One week from today, we'll enter a new year and a new decade, which for marijuana stock investors can't come a moment too soon. Although cannabis stocks have been on fire for years, 2019 was the first reality check for investors in some time.

Following an incredible first quarter that witnessed more than a dozen pot stocks rise by at least 70%, the subsequent nine months since the end of March have been spent in a seemingly never-ending downtrend. Supply issues throughout Canada and high tax rates in select U.S. states have squashed any near-term hope of profits for pot stocks and made cannabis the proverbial lump of coal left in the stockings of those who misbehave.

3 Marijuana stocks that cost investors billions in 2019

We now have less than a week to go before we say goodbye to 2019, and the year can't end soon enough for marijuana stock investors.

When 2019 began, the expectation was that this would be the year the cannabis industry really matured. Sales were expected to skyrocket with Canada allowing recreational weed sales and derivative pot products positioned to hit dispensary shelves during the fourth quarter. But as the year played out, these projections turned out to be nothing more than a pipe dream, with the end result being billions of dollars lost by pot stock investors.

How to pass a urine drug test

There are few statements more frightening for a regular marijuana user than “We are going to need you to take a urine drug test.” This seemingly innocuous statement is enough to send even the most rational individuals online to try to determine how to pass a urine test. Even though recreational and medicinal marijuana is increasingly becoming legal across the country, it is still standard practice for employers to request a THC urine drug test as a condition for employment or to require employees to submit to random drug testing.

These U.S. states are most likely to legalize marijuana in 2020

The cannabis advocacy community wants the nation to believe that 2019 was a banner year in the realm of marijuana reform. But the only things that really happened were that New York and New Jersey failed to make good on their word to legalize, Illinois followed through and the U.S. House of Representatives dilly-dallied with a couple of bills (SAFE and MORE Acts) that will never see the light of day.

This “banner” year that pro-pot organizations like NORML are so proud of really doesn’t equate to much. But we could have better luck next year. There are several states positioned to legalize marijuana in 2020. These are the five that seem to have the best chance at success.
