Who’d of thunk it. The total sales from legal recreational and medical marijuana surpassed the combined sales of Doritos, Cheetos and Funyuns in 2015.
Marijuana has outsold munchies, my fellow tokers.
How cool is that?
According to new estimates from ArcView Market Research and New Frontier Data, two marijuana industry market research groups, consumers of the kind spent a whopping $5.4 billion last year on legal weed.
I would have thought that the total sales of the two would be a bit more equal, seeing as how they correlate so well, right?
The report also projects that legal marijuana sales is set to swell by 25 percent in 2016 to reach $6.7 billion in the U.S.
Let those sales swell.
