420 with CNW — Could Canna-Tourism Trigger Economic Recovery?

Just as the global economy was finally recovering from the 2007–2008 financial crisis, the coronavirus pandemic struck, effectively plunging the world into the worst recession since World War 2.

The cannabis industry fared relatively well, on the other hand, with cannabis companies reporting month-over-month sales records even as the pandemic ravaged the…
