Medical marijuana dispensaries have been deemed essential during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic because they sell medicine. And many states are also allowing for adult-use marijuana sales to continue.
Just as liquor stores are being deemed essential throughout states across America, some states are also allowing recreational marijuana dispensaries to remain open, The Motley Fool reported.
Marijuana can help people cope with anxiety and depression, which are spreading across the nation as fast as COVID-19. For this reason, 8 states have decided to keep their recreational cannabis dispensaries open during the outbreak.
Almost every state in the nation has implemented a “stay-at-home” order to keep residents from spreading the virus. As of now, April 30 is the last day for most states’ at-home lockdowns. It is presumed that all medical and recreational dispensaries will remain open during the entire lockdown period.
