Dana Kravetz’s article, “Legalized Marijuana and the Hotel Industry,” was published on December 3, 2017, in Hotel Business Review.
From the article . . .
The numbers do not lie. As of this writing, 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, eight states (plus D.C.) permit its recreational use, and several additional jurisdictions have legislation in the works that may serve to legalize and regulate cannabis in some form. Another number of note – 64, which, according to a recent Gallup survey, is the percentage of adults in the U.S. that support decriminalizing pot. The takeaway for hoteliers: if you have not done so already, the time is now to address the impact of legalized marijuana on your business and the workplace.
