Medicare Prescription Costs Drop in Wake of Legalized MMJ

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

While it has been rumored for years that the legalization of medical marijuana in the United States would begin to empty the pockets of the big pharmaceutical companies by making profitable prescription drugs obsolete, a new report indicates that this scenario may not be too far fetched.

In states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, some of the latest research shows that Medicare claims for prescription medications are on the decline. A study published this week in Health Affairs finds that expenditures for Medicare Part D – the portion of the program that covers prescription costs – are down in medical marijuana states for drugs used to treat conditions ranging from anxiety to chronic pain because patients seem to be gravitating towards the herb as alternative to popping pills.

Nevada Marijuana Sales Estimated to Hit $630 Million by 2020

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Washington – New Frontier, in partnership with Arcview Market Research,  released its 2016 Nevada Legal Cannabis Market State Profile, which shows the potential growth of the adult use market if Nevada voters choose to legalize adult use cannabis in November.  Over the next four years, Arcview Market Research’s official market projection is that annual legal cannabis sales will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 51%; from $121.6 million in 2016 to an estimated $630 million by 2020.

“If Nevada legalizes adult use cannabis, we will witness an unprecedented socio-economic impact in a state already shaped and fueled by tourism and entertainment,” said Giadha DeCarcer, Founder and CEO of New Frontier. “The scale of the impact is expected to be massive – by 2020, adult use markets are projected to add an additional $484.3 million in annual sales, and account for almost three quarters of the total legal cannabis market in Nevada.”
