Submission + - Legal marijuana outsold both Viagra and tequila in 2016. (businessinsider.com)

schwit1 writes:

The legal marijuana industry brought in between $4 billion and $4.5 billion in 2016, outselling Viagra and Cialis, paid music streaming services, tequila, and Girl Scout cookies.

In 2016, sales of medical and recreational marijuana increased more than 30% over the year prior, according to the 2017 Marijuana Business Factbook, an industry report produced by the research and editorial teams at trade publication Marijuana Business Daily.

2016 was a big year for weed. Seven US states legalized the drug in some form on Election Day. California, the sixth-largest economy in the world, became the biggest domino to fall with the passage of Proposition 64. Much of the West Coast is now a legal enclave for recreational pot.

More Americans favor legalizing weed outright than ever before, according to a Gallup poll. A majority of them already live in states that have access to the drug for medical use.

And the so-called green rush shows no sign of slowing down.

Doesn't marijuana obviates the need for tequila and Viagra?
