The reason why the matter of this inequality in the essential nature of the cannabis industry matters so much is that a considerable amount of cannabis users makes use of the natural product for its recreational purposes. This reality is even more true in the 11 states in the United States where the use of cannabis for recreational purposes is legalized. The lack of an equal view to all arms of the business places a good part of the beneficiaries of the cannabis industry at a loss. The implication of this in terms of the situation around the pandemic is very dicey especially for recreational users. All these trends tell us is that there is a great deal of inequality in terms of how these governments see the cannabis industry.
