The legalization of recreational marijuana across the country is making a lot of people a lot of money.From companies aiding in the pharmaceutical movement to dispensary owners to grow houses, the marijuana industry is projected to bring in about 30 billion dollars in the next 5 years. With that being said, there are a lot of companies out there who are getting a contact high from the legal weed market. Let’s take a look at the people who are making a ton of money indirectly from marijuana legalization.
1. King Apps
For those of you who don’t know who King Apps is, it’s the ungodly asshat that got you addicted to Candy Crush Saga. Based on the numerous Facebook requests we get EVERY SINGLE DAY we know that stoners love this game. It mindlessly occupies you for hours with virtual munchies.
Nobody loves Netflix more than stoners. Think about how amazing it is to be able to get high and watch every episode of Bob’s Burgers or Arrested Development ever made. Binge watching good TV episodes and movies is pretty much a stoner’s wet dream. Plus, it’s a great alternative to cable.
Especially those flamin’ hot mother fuckers. There is nothing quite like getting high and ingesting some puffy artificial cheese-dusted chip. It’s not even a chip, really. In fact, what the fuck is a cheeto?
4. Mad Libs
Scoff if you want to, but you know these mother fuckers are hilarious when you’re high. For example, did you know that there is a Snoop Dogg Mad Libs book?? AND there’s a joint on the cover.
Stoners have always needed Visine to quell their dry, red eyes. With more and more people being able to get their hands on marijuana pretty much whenever they want, we at Stoned Girls are pretty sure that Visine sales have seen a bit of an increase. It’s a necessity for going to work high, after all.
***Bonus: Lays Potato Chips
We’re more than positive that weed has to be involved in whatever is going on at the Lays headquarters. They’re putting out all of these fucked up flavors right when weed is starting to become legal. We can’t help but feel like there had to be a marketing meeting sometime roughly two years ago with some underpaid noob presenting a powerpoint slideshow on the different types of flavors Lays should come out with based on the trending idea of legal recreational marijuana. Whoever it was, they were way ahead of their time. We would like to personally thank them for sriracha, chicken and waffles, cheddar bacon mac & cheese, kettle cooked wasabi ginger, wavy mango salsa, and probably the most fucked up of all, cappuccino.
