    Cannabis sales increased across WA during the pandemic.

    Cannabis sales increased across WA during the pandemic. Here’s where sales soared
    Feb. 23, 2022 at 6:00 am Updated Feb. 23, 2022 at 9:28 am
    5-7 minutes

    For many people, the pandemic lockdowns increased feelings of boredom, anxiety and loneliness. So it’s hardly a surprise that marijuana use increased, just as alcohol consumption did.

    But you might be surprised at just how much more cannabis Washingtonians are using now than they were before the pandemic.

    Data from the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Control Board shows sales increased statewide by $450 million, or about 43%, from the 2019 to 2021 fiscal years. The total retail sales in 2021 were nearly $1.5 billion.

    Cannabis sales also generated more than $550 million in excise taxes for the state, most of which will be spent on public health programs, as prescribed by Washington’s 2012 marijuana legalization measure.

    Fiscal year 2019 covers the period from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019, and fiscal year 2021 covers the period from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021.

    Of Washington’s 39 counties, all but Garfield and Franklin counties have at least one cannabis retailer. In all of these 37 counties, sales increased by percentages in the double digits from the 2019 to 2021 fiscal years. Still, there was a wide range in the amount that sales increased from county to county.



    The sales data suggests that cannabis use increased the most in more rural parts of the state during the pandemic, particularly in Eastern Washington. The biggest jump in sales was in Lincoln County, just west of Spokane County, where sales more than doubled from around $800,000 in 2019 to nearly $1.4 million in 2021.

    “That doesn’t surprise me at all,” said Elijah Hubert, a budtender at Molecule Cannabis, one of two retailers in Davenport, Lincoln County’s largest city. “I’d have six cars out front and 10 customers in the store … in the early spring when the pandemic first hit.”

    He says that many of the new customers were folks who had been laid off and who didn’t know when they’d be going back to work.

    “It may have been the first time they could use cannabis in 10 years,” Hubert said. “They didn’t know what they were looking for because they hadn’t smoked in so long.”

    He says a lot of customers used their unemployment payments to stock up on weed, sometimes spending $300 to $400 on the first day they came in.

    Sales are not as brisk at Molecule right now as they were earlier in the pandemic, Hubert says. He thinks that may be because things are starting to return to normal, but it could just be a normal winter slowdown.

    The other counties where retail sales of cannabis increased by more than 100% were Pend Oreille and Stevens, both north of Spokane.

    Klickitat County, in southern Washington just east of Vancouver, saw a modest 18% increase in cannabis retail sales, the smallest growth in the state.

    As you’d expect, King County had the greatest volume in sales in 2021, at almost $383 million, and also the largest increase in dollars — up $85 million from the 2019 fiscal year. But as a rate of growth, that pencils out to 29%, which is a slower than the statewide average.

    Although three rural Eastern Washington counties had the most impressive spikes in retail sales, these areas were not large consumers of marijuana to begin with.

    I calculated per capita sales data for each county using the 2020 Census population figures for the 18-and-older population (21-and-older figures are not available). Even with the spending more than doubling in Lincoln, Pend Oreille and Stevens counties, all three remain below the statewide average for 2021, which was $251 per person. In fact, Pend Oreille still had the lowest per capita spending among all the counties in 2021, at just $67.

    Retail spending in King County pencils out to $211 per person, lower than the statewide average, and lower than the two other counties in the Seattle metro area, Snohomish ($245) and Pierce ($268).

    The highest spending per capita was in Asotin County, and it’s an eye-popping figure: $866 per person. That’s more than double the per capita amount of the next highest county. In Asotin, there were $15 million dollars in sales for an adult population of less than 18,000 in the county.



    So what’s happening in Asotin?

    Most likely, this figure is inflated by sales to folks from neighboring Idaho, where marijuana is illegal, whether for recreational or medical use. Clarkston, the largest city in Asotin County, is part of the Lewiston, Idaho metro area, which has an adult population of about 51,000. I suspect that the cannabis retailers in Clarkston are largely supported by customers from across the state line.

    The No. 2 county is Spokane, where per capita sales were $388 — that figure, too, is probably buoyed by sales from Idaho, although more modestly. The city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is just minutes away from a number of cannabis retailers in Spokane County.

    Unlike Idaho, Oregon has legal marijuana, so Washington’s counties along the southern border are not as likely to be picking up out-of-state business.

    The highest per capita spending in a Washington county not bordering Idaho was in Grays Harbor, a coastal county in Southwestern Washington, and home to the city of Aberdeen. The county’s 60,000 adults spent more than $21 million on cannabis in 2021, for a per capita figure of $347. And I suppose that makes Grays Harbor the true marijuana capital of Washington.

    Some of those Grays Harbor sales might not necessarily be locals either of course.... Might be tourists who hit the weed stores in Aberdeen while passing through on their way to the beach.

    Not likely to happen here. People in this state really regret privatizing alcohol sales - which happened about 2 years before weed was legalized. Alcohol prices have gone insane up here since then. For some reason, even beer prices have skyocketed, though it was always available in the grocery stores even when the hard stuff was not.

    Another reason why weed is so popular around here. It's cheaper than alcohol and no hangovers.

    Weed causes far less problems than alcohol. One theory is the big chemical companies wanted to make hemp illegal because they wanted to sell synthetic fabrics and fibers. So they created a big anti-marajuana propaganda campaign. Then of course there was the low social stigma pot smoking had. Maybe a combination of things. I’m allergic to it so I never did much pot.

    Mike Tyson selling ear-shaped cannabis edibles



    (CNN) - Mike Tyson’s latest cannabis edible has a tongue-in-cheek reference to a body part.

    The legendary boxer’s gummy products, “Mike Bites,” come in the shape of an ear.

    It is a joking reference to Tyson’s infamous 1997 heavyweight championship match against Evander Holyfield. At one point in the fight, Tyson bit off a small chunk of Holyfield’s ear.

    Tyson was disqualified immediately afterward, and that moment became one of the most bizarre moments in boxing history.

    “These ears actually taste good!” Tyson tweeted about the product.

    As for Tyson and Holyfield, they have long reconciled since the fight.

    In 2014, when Holyfield made it into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame, Tyson gave the induction speech.

    Cannabis sales in New Mexico surpass 4.5 million during opening weekend

    koat.com
    Cannabis sales in New Mexico surpass 4.5 million during opening weekend for recreational sales
    John Cardinale

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —

    On April 1, 2022, the first legal sale of cannabis in New Mexico took place at R.Greenleaf in Las Cruces at 12:01 a.m.

    “It overdelivered. At 7 p.m. when I got to the store Thursday night, we had about 10 people already in line. When I came back at 11:30 p.m. right before midnight, we had 500 people in line,” Steve Pear said.

    Pear is the president of the New Mexico Division of Schwazze, he said after that first sale was made business has been non-stop at his dispensaries around the state.

    “All at least doubled their business and we even had one of our stores to ten times what they normally do in a day on Friday,” Pear said.

    According to the Cannabis Control Division, as of 12:30 p.m. Sunday, this weekend brought in just over $4.5 million in total sales, with $2.7 million sold on Friday alone, nearly 70% of the sales coming from recreational users.

    “It's really cool to see all that business flowing into New Mexico,” Gary Cohen said.

    Cohen is the CEO of COVA software; they have a partnership with R.Greenleaf.

    Cohen’s program is playing an integral role in the transition dispensaries in New Mexico are making now that they can sell recreational marijuana.

    The program classifies what can be sold to a medical patient and recreational user according to state law, making it easy for businesses to report sales back to the state.

    “We're compliance first and compliance is the number one job in the cannabis industry just to do things right so that the states can look at the federal government and say, we got this, you know, we're doing it,” Cohen said.

    With new recreational customers hitting New Mexico dispensaries, owners believe the surge in sales will last a little bit longer, especially with 4/20, the day that celebrates weed just around the corner.

    “I think with 4/20 right around the corner, I would imagine we'll see a surge through then,” Pear said.

    A concern was that stores would run out of products because of a surge in sales.

    Pear said their locations are stocked up and don't expect to run out.

    No fun. Fun was buying some bunk reefer from some dude in a Trans Am in a back alley and then going through the ritual of separating the twigs, seeds and dirt from what was smokable. Then you would plant the seeds and grow your own plants and tell mom they were juvenile bamboo plants.

    75-Year-Old Successfully Treats Alzheimer’s Symptoms With Microdoses Of THC

    highandpolite.co.uk
    75-Year-Old Successfully Treats Alzheimer’s Symptoms With Microdoses Of THC -


    A 75-year-old man has successfully treated his Alzheimer’s symptoms by using daily microdoses of a THC-rich cannabis extract over a 22 month period, a new case study reports.

    The man – who was experiencing memory deficit, spatial and temporal disorientation, and limited daily activity – never used more than 1mg of THC per day to achieve the improvements in his symptoms.

    The case provides new evidence that cannabinoid microdosing could be effective as an Alzheimer’s disease treatment while preventing major side effects.

    “This is an important step toward dissociating cannabinoids’ health-improving effects from potential narcotic-related limitations,” the authors of the study conclude.

    Alzheimer’s disease and current treatments

    Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease among the elderly. Aging is the main risk factor, and since we have an ageing population, researchers expect Alzheimer’s to be a global epidemic by 2050.

    One of the biggest issues is the lack of effective treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. Some scientists even think that Alzheimer’s cannot be fully prevented, slowed down, properly diagnosed, or cured.

    Currently, there are two categories of medication approved for Alzheimer’s, which slow disease progression to some degree but do not cure the disease.

    The study

    The case report, published in Journal of Medical Case Reports, describes how tiny doses of a THC-rich cannabis extract dramatically improved Alzheimer’s disease symptoms in a 75-year-old farmer from Brazil.

    After trying a common Alzheimer’s drug and experiencing terrible side effects, the man’s family decided to try a cannabis extract, which they imported as a food supplement.

    Scientists tested the extract and confirmed it had a 8:1 ratio of THC to CBD along with trace amounts of CBG, CBN and THCV.

    In an attempt to find an optimal dose, the patients tried daily doses between 0.3 micrograms (mg) and 1mg. The most used dose was 0.5mg, which the patient continued to use after the official evaluation and follow-up for the case report ended.

    “We tried to titrate the dose up to 1 mg THC, but the most frequent dose was 500 µg THC. The period when the patient was treated with this dose seemed to be the period with higher symptom suppression. This well-known cannabinoid bell-shaped effect was not surprising since it has been previously reported,” the authors report.

    The “experimental therapeutic intervention” was introduced two years after the patient was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Over 22 months, the patient’s symptoms were clinically evaluated using Mini-Mental State Examination and Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale.

    The results showed that the cannabinoid extract significantly improved clinical scores in both measures. Not only that, symptom amelioration was “rapid” and “robust”.

    Long-term improvements


    Additionally, testimonials from patient and caregiver highlight other cognitive improvements. As described by the patient himself:

    “I used to feel forgetful, not once after the treatment. Sometimes, I did not know where I was, it has not happened to me anymore. I used to find myself lost on the streets, I could not leave home unassisted; today, I took the bus by myself to perform my clinical evaluation.

    “Shortly after the beginning of the treatment, I already felt more alert and excited during daily activities, and I have noticed I have been sleeping much better.”

    The reduction in symptoms lasted for the entire duration of the study and during follow-ups more than a year after the official report ended – at that point, 42 months after first using the cannabinoid extract.

    Possible ways THC could help Alzheimer’s symptoms

    The study authors speculate that the primary beneficial effect of low doses of THC on memory/cognition could be down to the cannabinoid giving a compensatory boost to an ageing-impaired endocannabinoid system.

    Lots of studies have reported positive cannabinoid effects on Alzheimer’s disease using experimental in vitro and in vivo models (test tube and animal studies). For instance, cannabinoid treatment has been shown to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain, as well as increase the growth of new brain cells.

    These effects could play a causative and complementary role in the long-term reduction of Alzheimer’s symptoms.

    A study from early 2022 also found that cannabinol (CBN) protects neurons from oxidative stress and cell death, two of the major contributors to neurodegenerative disorders.

    Conclusion

    The study authors find it remarkable how a dose so low is able to consistently improve cognitive and noncognitive symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

    Not only did the cannabis extract microdoses substantially improve the patient’s (and his carers’) quality of life, there were no signs of toxicity or significant side effects.

    Without this treatment, he would have faced a choice between his disease deteriorating unattended or suffering from the severe side-effects of a medicine that may only slow the progression of his disease.

    While the findings of this case study are unprecedented and very encouraging, the limitations of a one-patient case report, without blinding or placebo group, must be considered.

    Read the case report here.

    Joe Biden taking "baby steps" towards Federal cannabis "reform"??

    Official White House Press Release

    As I often said during my campaign for President, no one should be in jail just for using or possessing marijuana. Sending people to prison for possessing marijuana has upended too many lives and incarcerated people for conduct that many states no longer prohibit. Criminal records for marijuana possession have also imposed needless barriers to employment, housing, and educational opportunities. And while white and Black and brown people use marijuana at similar rates, Black and brown people have been arrested, prosecuted, and convicted at disproportionate rates.

    Today, I am announcing three steps that I am taking to end this failed approach.

    First, I am announcing a pardon of all prior Federal offenses of simple possession of marijuana. I have directed the Attorney General to develop an administrative process for the issuance of certificates of pardon to eligible individuals. There are thousands of people who have prior Federal convictions for marijuana possession, who may be denied employment, housing, or educational opportunities as a result. My action will help relieve the collateral consequences arising from these convictions.

    Second, I am urging all Governors to do the same with regard to state offenses. Just as no one should be in a Federal prison solely due to the possession of marijuana, no one should be in a local jail or state prison for that reason, either.

    Third, I am asking the Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Attorney General to initiate the administrative process to review expeditiously how marijuana is scheduled under federal law. Federal law currently classifies marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, the classification meant for the most dangerous substances. This is the same schedule as for heroin and LSD, and even higher than the classification of fentanyl and methamphetamine – the drugs that are driving our overdose epidemic.

    Finally, even as federal and state regulation of marijuana changes, important limitations on trafficking, marketing, and under-age sales should stay in place.

    Too many lives have been upended because of our failed approach to marijuana. It’s time that we right these wrongs.

    Of course what he should do is just fucking legalize it already, but at least it's a start....

    The one thing Biden did NOT address in his statement was the ability of weed stores in "legal" states to use the same type of banking services that any other retail business can use. Because of the federal prohibition, they have had to remain cash-only businesses, which makes them targets for armed robbery.

    The sensible solution to that would be just remove the federal prohibition altogether, and allow the states to handle it just like they did when alcohol prohibition ended. Most will sell weed legally, some will refuse to. Others will have "dry counties" with no dispensaries. As the map of Washington I posted previously shows, we still have 2 such "dry counties" in this state, despite being one of the first two states to legalize weed. Just as it is with booze sales, if those counties want to lose business to neighboring counties, that's up to them, but let's get rid of Nixon's racist "war on drugs" once and for all.

    If we made everything legal you just lay low for awhile until all the violent people kill each other off and the stupid people die in accidents. Darwin at work. What would be left are smart and responsible people. Society would improve.

    This should have been done the minute Obama was elected.

    How could you have people in jail, especially those put away forever by the sick 3 and out rule, when the president freely admits to doing exactly what they did?

    I find it still odd and fascinating traveling to states where weed is legal...

    On a recent trip to California I noted that the place seems overrun with skunks, constantly smelling them. But they've evolved there... normally silent creatures, they make an odd sound similar to a Bic lighter now...

    Because Obama was a corrupt politician like most of them. Rules for thee but not for me. Our current Vice President was notorious for sending people to prison for minor pot violations. You can't tell me she ain't on edibles the way she giggles.

    Anyways Red Light/Blue Light. Oh vote for this party and all will be fixed. Ha! Ha! Ha! They are all the same. Dubya loves Obama. All hugs and kisses. Get a clue. Pro Wrestling all the way. The system is rigged.

    If you are an outsider not in the club, you will get dogpiled on by both the Democrat and Republican Parties. I have no idea why people can't see it. It's obvious.

    Biden is just doing pre-election tricks. Letting some pot heads off the hook gives the Dems a bit of a boost in the election or they hope it does. He pissed Thomas Chong off though. He did a year in federal prison for sending a bong over state lines through the mail. He did the time and got no vote boost pardon, Life is a bitch.

    Oh the rich parts of California are still enjoyable. Spent some time in Newport Beach not too long ago. But man. Drive around the rest of Orange and LA Counties and it's gone downhill hard since the 1970's. Long Beach used to be a nice town but it sucks now. Traffic on the 405 sucks too. Had a business meeting in Culver City and it was a bitch getting up there.

    San Diego used to be a small sleepy town with great weather. Yeah my neighbors had a condo downtown by Horton Plaza and sold it and live here full time now. A lot of Californians have done it. The thing is even in the nice areas nobody had done road maintenance on the residential streets. You go around the Hollywood hills. You go around the Silicon Valley and the black top is checkered and falling apart in a mild climate. For the tax revenues they get there those streets should be pristine. I bet sone streets haven’t been paved in 50 years. Nobody in the South Bay even bothers to go up to San Francisco anymore. It’s a shithole. SF used to be the weekend getaway. Not now.

    There's a weed store on the fringes of Denvoid County that every time I go by it always has the windows boarded up and now they hired a goon squad security service. It's really not about "investors" or maybe it is in that investors want to move onto nicer neighborhoods with higher incomes so they can sell The Devil's Lettuce to suburbanites. It's really a pain to buy weed around here anymore and most of it is way overpriced and is complete shit.

    LoDo is a "shithole" mainly due to transplants (Texans and Californians) who have destroyed Colorado. Gentrification is a god damn eyesore and mix that in with fucktards who openly spark up because they feel entitled to. Denvoid just sucks anymore.

    Even Oahu sucks these days. Know a few people who said fuck it and moved to the big Island. Maui might have improved since Sammy Hagar sold his property there and moved out.

    Who the fuck was going to believe that weed had 46% THC. That's twice what the "high THC" strains have around here

    I lived in Cherry Hills just south of Denver. Enjoyed it. But yeah I’ve heard Denver suffers from urban sprawl and the retardation that comes from it. I don’t miss the lightning storms though.
