For those pondering the matter of marijuana replacing alcohol during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are here to tell you that is a thing that is definitely happening.

From Forbes:

Almost half of cannabis consumers age 21 and up have replaced or reduced their alcohol consumption with marijuana since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the results of a Harris Poll released this month.  The poll also found that one-third of those who use cannabis recreationally prefer cannabis to drinking alcohol.

To conduct the poll, nearly 2,000 adults age 21 and up were surveyed about their consumption habits since the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak earlier this year. Of those who said that they have ever used cannabis, 42% said that they had either started or increased their consumption during the pandemic, while 45% said they had replaced or reduced alcohol use with cannabis.

Earlier in 2020, industry number crunching behemoth, BDS Analytics, estimated that the U.S. cannabis market will be worth $31.1 billion by 2024. Worldwide, sales could total $42.7 billion by the same year. Part of this growth they say will be driven by the increasing prevalence cannabis beverages. BDS expects it to reach $1 billion in the U.S. by 2022.

Marijuana replacing alcohol during covid-19 pandemic so say the numbers.
