In California, Cannabis Dispensaries recorded high sales during the Christmas season. Is it a new trend to give cannabis away for Christmas?
Kysa Butler, the assistant general manager of the Oakland-based Magnolia shop, told KTVU on Monday that lines in her store have been steady.
“From the moment we were open at 9 o’clock we had a line,” she said. “We’ve been knocking the lines out quickly but they’ve been steady, too.”
Butler added that people start stocking up on the marijuana-infused products to take away some of the stress the Christmas season has brought them.
“People start stocking up. Sometimes you need a little stress reliever from Christmas shopping or sometimes you need a little something when you meet your family,” she said.
Some customers see the pot treats as the perfect gifts for their loved ones. One person, identified as Christopher, told the station he was about to get some edible treats.
“It’s definitely unique. It just feels like you’re having a snack and then later you want more snacks.” he said.
