'I would love some weed for Christmas': Cannabis sales up during holidays
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTVU) - Not everyone is going to the mall for Christmas shopping.
Some customers are hitting marijuana dispensaries for cannabis gifts.
This is the first holiday season, where recreational pot is legal in California and All About Wellness in the Sacramento area is stocked with everything from edible Christmas goodies to stocking stuffers.
They say they usually see 20 to 25 customers a day, but now, it’s up to more than 150 customers a day during the holiday season.
“I honestly think it's going to be one of the biggest gifts people will be buying, to be honest with you,” said Tavares Simpson. “I would love some weed for Christmas.
He’s not the only one: “My grandmother, she loves edibles. She loves to smoke.”
A word to the wise, before you buy cannabis gifts for anyone, make sure they are at least 21 years old.
