"Stoners, young adults and partiers are yesterday’s cannabis users. The new cannabis market is for all adults, all walks of life, and ALL lifestyles.” - Latham Woodward, CEO, Shoogies.
The legalization of cannabis has opened the door to a mainstream audience, yet there still exists a “cannabis culture” that is not entirely welcoming.
The new freedom of the adult general public to purchase differing cannabis products is being hampered at the retail side by people who are in the so-called “culture," and not allowing in brands that serve new and differing buyers.
"What the culture wants" and "what the culture will accept” is limited to a very narrow segment of this society.
Shoogies CEO Latham Woodward considers this way of thinking short-sighted and elitist. He believes that with the advent and legalization of cannabis, there is no longer a unified “culture,” just an entire adult sphere of buyers.
