Some States Say Marijuana Is “Essential” Like Milk and Bread
As many “nonessential” stores are being forced to close over concerns of the coronavirus many states feel that the pot shops and marijuana dispensaries should remain open.
Yeah you heard that right, while most of America is rushing for toilet paper in the states that weed is legal they’re rushing to get their supply of weed to last them throughout the quarantine.
Major update: After panicked crowds swarm Denver liquor stores and dispensaries, the mayor has reversed his order to close both. They're now essential businesses provided they can abide by "extreme social distancing." https://t.co/3ofC8RLhzn

Sales of marijuana grew by 150 percent in San Francisco before their stay-home order and in Denver, the lines were around the corner before they had to close.
Marijuana dispensary owners across the country are being extra careful about obeying the law while the entire country deals with self-quarantining to take down coronavirus.
