    A Quarter of American Beer Drinkers Say They’re Switching to Pot

    A Quarter of American Beer Drinkers Say They’re Switching to Pot
    As legalization of marijuana grows throughout the United States, so does its popularity with beer drinkers.

    About one in four Americans are now spending their money on marijuana instead of beer, new research from Cannabiz Consumer Group found.

    Twenty-seven percent of beer consumers are legally purchasing cannabis instead of beer, or suggested they would purchase it instead if it were legalized in their state. The research group surveyed 40,000 Americans last year.

    About 24.6 million Americans legally purchased pot in the U.S. last year and that number is expected to grow, according to the study. Numerous states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, and a smaller number of states have legalized it for recreational use.

    Still, the group predicts the cannabis industry will grow to $50 billion. The U.S. beer market sells over $100 billion in beer each year, according to the National Beer Wholesalers Association.

    However Yuengling beer drinkers most likely will continue to enjoy the full bodied flavor of Yuengling.

      I'm trying to invest in cannabis. The problem is they are all penny stocks which mostly fail, AND they have deal in cash, so there's no
      accountability. Whenever the banks support the business, the stocks will rise out of the penny stock category.

      Right. Now what exactly are the chances of the world living a life of total sobriety?

      Okay now back to reality. Now exactly what is wrong with being able to make the safer choice?

    Since good people don't use marijuana, it must be the bad beer drinkers who are switching over.

    Trump doesn't use LSD. Don't be silly!
    He has a cactus garden full of peyote for that mescaline buzz! LOL

    Side note: Peyote is not safe for the inexperienced.
    ..................It can cause anxiety, paranoia, fear, and emotional instability!

    Sound familiar? LOL

    There are some people who should not smoke marijuana, just as there are many more people who should not drink alcohol. No one should smoke cigarettes.

    I have never read of anyone who died from an overdose of marijuana. I have never read of anyone who became violent under the influence. It is not clear that there are any health problems at all, although chronic, heavy use is not a good idea.

    There are only two obvious problems with marijuana. First, if you get arrested and convicted of possession it can damage the rest of your life. Second, the marijuana you buy on the street may have dangerous chemicals added to it.

      Breathing smoke into your lungs is by no means healthy!

      The biggest thing I notice in heavy long time smokers is short term memory loss.
      I'm not a heavy smoker, but I enjoy a few beers and a joint on occasion.
      Some of my buddies are long time smokers and sometimes they repeat shit a lot. LOL!!!

    Initially many companies will sell marijuana legally. Eventually some companies will drive out the other companies, and dominate the industry. The hard part is figuring out which companies will survive the competition.

    I stopped drinking beer awhile back due to repeated gout flare ups...just not worth it to me...however i have found comfort in the marijuana cigarette... I'll never quite understand how one is perfectly legal and the other isn't...but then again i live in a country where more than half the population believes in angels so it kinda makes sense.

    I mean if you think about it logically it doesn't make a bit of sense.

    Alcohol is man-made...yet marijuana just grows with a bit of sunshine and water...ok you can make the argument as to it's pro's and con's but you could make that same argument about alcohol. Infact; it's been proven that alcohol is much more deadly than weed...if you can say that marijuana is a gateway drug then you should also say that xnxx is a gateway for child molestors and rapists...newsflash people...the only gateway through anything is through ones mind...your thoughts and actions determine the choices you ultimately make no one else or nothing...stop blaming your misfortunes on everything and everybody other than your goddamn self...just because you can't handle it's effects shouldn't mean i can't reap it's rewards...
