Legal marijuana: A $44 billion business by 2020?

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

The growing acceptance and legalization of marijuana is helping the U.S. cannabis industry expand well beyond niche status. It's forecast to pump from $24 billion to $44 billion annually into the country's economy by 2020, according to an industry publication.

At the upper end of that forecast, published in the Marijuana Business Factbook 2016, it means sales of medicinal and recreational marijuana and related products and services would nearly equal the annual revenues of such Fortune 500 firms asFedEx (FDX) and Lockheed Martin (LMT), should current trends continue.

Put another way, that $44 billion is just shy of Panama's $46.2 billion GDP and ahead of Serbia's $43.9 billion. Even if the industry publication's forecast is a bit puffed up, cannabis is clearly heading for the big time.

New Orleans City Council Doesn’t Want People Arrested For Personal Marijuana Possession

marijuana arrest prison drug drugsArresting someone for marijuana is inhumane, can ruin the person’s life in the blink of an eye, and costs the arresting agency a ton of money. I’m not sure how much a marijuana arrest costs in all municipalities, but many of the figures I’ve seen put a marijuana arrest for simple possession at between $1,500 and $2,000. Compare that to issuing a citation, which can cost as low as $20 from some statistics I’ve seen. More and more local governments are reforming their marijuana laws in such a way that minimizes the amount of people being arrested for simple marijuana possession.

The New Orleans City Council became the most recent local government to make such a move. The New Orleans City Council voted yesterday to reform it’s city marijuana law regarding personal possession. Per NOLA:

New Orleans police will have even more leeway to issue citations for simple marijuana possession after the City Council voted 7-0 Thursday (March 17) to enact new standards aimed at reducing the number of arrests for low-level drug crime.

Local law already allowed NOPD officers to write a ticket for first-offense possession, and they still have the option to use the stricter state law that calls for arrests. Council members Susan Guidry and Jason Williams backed the ordinance that allows police to issue summonses for third and subsequent simple possession charges.

“Our hope with this is that fewer people will be brought to jail and fewer people will have their lives disrupted with this charge,” Guidry said.
