MI,MO AND UT PASS CANNA-LAWS

Yesterday was a big win for Michigan, Missouri and Utah as they passed laws for recreational cannabis use (Michigan) and medicinal use (Utah, Missouri). This makes the 31st and 32nd state to approve medicinal marijuana and the 10th state, plus the District of Columbia, to approve recreational. Huge opportunities for vendors such as smoke shops and dispensaries aren't far to follow and we'll be here to help when you need us!

WHAT'S BEEN PASSED

Michigan:

Michigan approved Proposal 1 allowing adults 21 and older to buy, grow, posses and use marijuana for recreational purposes. Under Proposal 1 you can posses up to 2.5 ounces at a time and cultivate up to 12 plants for personal use. 

Utah:

Utah approved Proposition 2, which allows patients to legally consume, purchases and posses marijuana for medicinal purposes. Some of the ailments medicinal marijuana will be prescribed for under this proposition are; HIV, PTSD, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, autism, cancer and Alzheimer's. Although marijuana is legal for medicinal use, combustion of marijuana is still illegal. To consume marijuana you must use vaporizers, edibles, tinctures, or alternatives besides smoking.

Missouri:

Amendment 2, a constitutional amendment to allow medical cannabis, passed with a margin of 66 percent to 34 percent. This amendment allows patients who have approval from their doctor to grow up to six marijuana plants and purchase up to four ounces from dispensaries per month. As far as we know all forms or consumption are legal as long as your doctor approves.

WHAT TO EXPECT

If you're a retailer in these areas you'll notice a few changes. For the most part marijuana use is becoming more accepted. Your target demographic might shift, ever so slightly, towards a modern crowd instead of the typical heady customer. You can also bet, especially in Utah, that oil and wax vaporizer sales will get a small boost. Storage devices and smell proof bags might be more sought after. You should prepare for this shift by purchasing accordingly and merchandising these products to the best of your ability. Check out the links for some of our suggested products below!
