Cannabis traffic in legal areas both online and in person was astonishing
Global cannabis suppliers struggled to keep up with demand on Saturday, the biggest ever 4/20 Day, an annual celebration of marijuana on 20 April, which in the US calendar is referred to as 4/20. Suppliers in the US, where recreational cannabis is legal in 10 states, and Canada, where the drug was decriminalised for recreational use last year, reported difficulties fulfilling orders on what has been called the industry’s Black Friday.
Some delivery websites, and the biggest legal delivery app, Eaze, crashed under the weight of demand on Saturday. Online cannabis dispensaries Nugg and Chill also suffered difficulties throughout the day. Eaze crashed repeatedly soon after it began “happy hour”, with free delivery in California, and a 20% discount on cannabis-related products in other states.
“We know Eaze.com is experiencing intermittent outages and have all hands on deck working to keep up with demand,” the company said on Twitter. “Thank you for your patience.” “The volume was unprecedented – cannabis has definitely gone mainstream,” an Eaze spokeswoman said. “The lines to dispensaries across California were out the door.”
