No Weed During Corona: Cannabis Sales are Suffering in California

You would think that the cannabis industry would thrive during the all-American pandemic. Turns out, that isn’t exactly the case — at least not in California, reports Los Angeles Magazine.

Their March 30th research dives into the post-quarantine announcement accounts of marijuana dealers’ lives and the lives of their clientele. According to this month’s statistics, it seemed like toilet paper wasn’t the only thing Californians stocked up on.

The weed demand soared by over 159 percent the day after Los Angeles went into lockdown. But as March 20th passed, the sales went down 45 percent.

According to cannabis marketers, their customers currently prefer to stretch their pot stashes — and not just because they are trying to save up. The non-contact delivery, which is basically required during the quarantine, is legally impossible for weed trade. A person who delivers weed must meet the buyer in person in order to verify their age.

Emma is the head of the Health Department in Regional USA. She is a professional nutritionist who believes in the power of a tasty meal. Emma spent her childhood years in her grandparents' home in Toscana — she loves to say that she was weaned on real Italian olives and semolina flour. That, along with her Nonna's vast book collection made her into the person she is today. After getting her Nutrition degree at Arizona State University, Emma finished an online screenwriting course, effectively uniting her knowledge to build a career on TV. She spent the next six years blissfully planning scripts for Food Liberation, Yummy Hour and Ask Your Doc, to name a few. Thankfully, we were lucky enough to snatch Emma for ourselves as our Sub-Editor, Health Editor and the endless source of seriously delicious vegan recipes (yes, those do exist!). Last year Emma moved to Louisiana with her partner, their two kids, and a pet iguana named Cormac.
