22.6% of U.S. Adults Say They’ve Used Marijuana Within the Last Year

Cannabis Consumers Shopping For Bargains During Pandemic

[Canniseur: I never thought about price and getting people out of the illicit market. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not. But price is always a determining factor.

Celebrating Jack Herer, ‘The Hemperor’

Jack Herer was likely the figure most responsible for the revolution in cannabis consciousness in the 1990s — especially where the industrial applications of hemp are concerned.
