If you're hoping to blaze into the New Year, you might want to get ahold of your legal weed ahead of time: Marijuana deliveries are expected to spike on New Year's Eve.
Last year, deliveries on New Year's Eve increased 71% over the yearly average for Saturdays, while they surged by 41% on New Year's Day, Forbes reported., citing data from marijuana tech company Eaze.
Weed deliveries have been in high demand throughout the holidays. On Dec. 23, pot deliveries jumped by 23% from the average on Fridays throughout the year, and they bumped up by 6% on Christmas Eve. What's more, on the day before Thanksgiving, weed orders spiked by 71% over the yearly average for a Wednesday, causing marijuana businesses to call the day Green Wednesday.
Experts aren't totally sure why deliveries are spiking recently, though they cite a few possible causes including holiday stress. Weed might also be a more acceptable holiday gift or party activity since it's become legal in more states.
For your New Year's party, Eaze suggests a festive 24-carat gold rolling paper by Shine, priced at $55. After the end-of-year rush, sales are expected to taper until marijuana's next big holiday, on April 20.
