People are buying more cannabis than wine & chicken! Don’t just take my word for it! Take a listen to Jessica Billingsley, CEO of a company called Akerna.
Jessica estimates that Americans will spend ~$450MM on cannabis this July 4th versus just $371 million on chicken.
More importantly, the movement away from alcohol is in full swing, with Jessica also estimating that American cannabis purchasing will outgrow wine purchasing next year (2020!)
This is great news!
As we know, cannabis is a non toxic substance that cannot kill a human being. Alcohol, on the other hand, is very toxic and kills thousands of humans every day across the globe. Do the math. According to the CDC, “alcohol is estimated to be responsible for about 88,000 deaths per year – more than overdoses from all other drugs combined.”
Let that sink in.
“More than overdoses from all other drugs…combined!”
Yet anyone over the age of 21 can purchase and consume alcohol like its water. No big deal – here is a bottle of poison. But for cannabis, a non toxic plant, you have to jump through hoops to get a license to purchase and then wait on line in the sun, rain or snow just to purchase overpriced products created by the government’s intervention into nature.
