You're going to be so surprised that weed is in more demand than these very popular items.

I realize that many people smoke marijuana, but I didn't think it made that much money.

According to,

"A new report from Marijuana Business Daily estimates that the total demand for marijuana, including the black market, is $45-$50 billion."


Here are things pot outsells.

  • Ice Cream $5.1 billion
  • Movie tickets $11.1 billion
  • Snacks $4.9 billion
  • Paid music streaming services $2.5 billion
  • Girl Scout cookies $776 million

If the federal government legalizes marijuana nationwide and it comes into the mainstream, it's believed that it will pass cigarette and beer sales too.

Experts thought the novelty would wear off but it hasn't. The popularity of marijuana keeps growing.

A report shows that the cannabis sector employs between 165,000 - 230,000 part-time and full-time workers.

More workers in the weed industry than these careers.

  • Bakers
  • Massage therapists
  • Dental hygienists

There is one thing for sure. Marijuana is big money.
