South American country plans to issue as many as five permits to grow cannabis

Pharmacies will then be able to sell as much as 40 grams (0.1 pound) of pot a month, enough for about 60 joints, to registered users, the government has said.

We have gone from a consumer base of medical card-holding individuals with specific needs and tastes, to a consumer base of virtually anyone over the age of twenty-one. Now more than ever, we can leverage established retail design principles and consumer behavior insights to grow our businesses and tap into our customers’ spending power.

As the great Paco Underhill states, “Marketing, advertising, promotion and location can bring shoppers in, but then it’s the job of the merchandise, the employees, and the store itself to turn them into buyers.”

“Invest in what you know.”

That’s a common piece of advice given to new investors that Calvin Broadus, Jr. (a.k.a. Snoop Dogg, a.k.a. Snoop Lion) seems to be taking to heart.

Marijuana and Technology

Technology is beginning to affect every aspect of the cannabis marketplace, pushing it in unprecedented directions. As Tantalus Labs builds the first ground-up, legal, cannabis-tailored greenhouse in Canada, we can’t help notice others building ancillary services in the marketplace. As with most health innovation, the end result is a better patient experience. Some of these prospects are big bets on the future, and many others can be found in established industries, with the application to marijuana seemingly past due.
