Declaring cannabis ‘essential’ marks a watershed moment in history

Declaring cannabis ‘essential’ marks a watershed moment in history

| March 26, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced government officials to make life-or-death decisions about which goods and services are essential, and which are not.

Essential businesses stay open; those not on the list must close to the public.

In state after state, and province after province, regulators have declared medical marijuana essential. This is a watershed moment worth noting.

In California, New York, Washington, Illinois, Massachusetts, Colorado, Nevada, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, governors have closed non-essential businesses, but specifically allowed medical (and sometimes adult-use) cannabis dispensaries to remain open.

That’s a historic change.
