There were a lot of high hopes for the cannabis industry for 2021. Like any year, it’s a mixed bag of highs and lows and many stories to tell. With a new administration in the White House, banking reform and legalization the federal level seemed within reach. More states legalized adult-use cannabis, including New York, Connecticut and Virginia, and the momentum picked up on a global scale. And at least earlier in the year, when it looked like we were heading into a post-COVID world, cannabis sales were on a high.

There were positives that came out of negatives, like the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency being forced to reevaluate the role cannabis plays in sports after Sha’Carri Richardson was banned from running in the Tokyo Olympics due to testing positive for marijuana. 

And for better or worse, having the biggest corporations jump into the cannabis ring, like Amazon no longer testing employees for weed use, and backing reform and bending the ear of politicians who can make the changes the industry needs. 

And those were all stories worth reading over the last 12 months. But there are so many others, from myriad medical studies to the worst marijuana strains of all time, what you need to know before buying weed, and lots and lots of Seth Rogen.
