While a lot of businesses are struggling to get through the pandemic, one industry is doing just fine thank you. The Miami New Times reports medical marijuana dispensaries here in Florida are doing record sales. They say there are 327,000 medical marijuana cardholders and since it’s considered an essential medication, just like gas stations and supermarkets, they don’t have to close. Sales were up almost 40 percent last week according to the article. Reducing anxiety is one benefit. And not surprisingly, they say alcohol and cigarette sales are way up too.
