Online Weed Sales Buzzing: Study Los Angeles City Council Votes To Ban Medical Marijuana Dispensaries LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 25: Marijuana plants grow at Perennial Holistic Wellness Center medical marijuana dispensary, which opened in 2006, on July 25, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. The Los Angeles City Council has unanimously voted to ban storefront medical marijuana dispensaries and to order them to close or face legal action. The council also voted to instruct staff to draw up a separate ordinance for consideration in about three months that might allow dispensaries that existed before a 2007 moratorium on new dispensaries to continue to operate. It is estimated that Los Angeles has about one thousand such facilities. The ban does not prevent patients or cooperatives of two or three people to grow their own in small amounts. Californians voted to legalize medical cannabis use in 1996, clashing with federal drug laws. The state Supreme Court is expected to consider ruling on whether cities can regulate and ban dispensaries. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

Forty-three per cent of marijuana users say they prefer to buy products online, according to a survey conducted by research firm Maru/Blue, for the cannabis brand Figr.
This is an increase from 13.3% of cannabis sales that were made online during the first year of legalization, as reported by Statistics Canada in December 2019.
The shift in consumer preference represents a notable change in the market that may have been brought on by changes to consumer shopping habits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
But it is unclear if this trend will continue, the study says, as provincial regulations continue to fluctuate on whether private stores can use online sales alongside provincial distributors.
Figr asked what Canadian cannabis users prefer to use as a resource when unsure about what product to purchase and 35% of cannabis consumers said they would prefer a conversation with a budtender at a retail store.
