Some argue the plastic packaging from cannabis stores is contributing to pollution

Those at the very least be recycled, but there are plastic labels with paper and glue attached that can’t be recycled.

I worry sometimes that I use and buy too many plastic products. I try to recycle whatever I can, but it’s daunting when you start looking at all of the packaging and materials that can’t be recycled. I looked over my grocery cart the other day just to analyze how much of the packaging materials cannot be recycled. Needless to say, the sheer degree of unrecyclable materials is terrifying. I don’t know how anyone is supposed to erase their carbon footprint in a world that is so full of plastics at every turn. I have quit using the plastic grocery bags at the store, and at the very least I’ve noticed that some stores are using thinner bags or ones made with degradable plastic. It’s a small step, but at least it’s a step in the right direction. I have heard many criticize the cannabis dispensaries around the country for negatively contributing to the pollution problem with all of their non-recyclable plastic packaging. A few of the dispensaries use glass jars for as many of their products that they can, but others have everything from pre-rolled joints to tinctures in small plastic tubes. Those at the very least be recycled, but there are plastic labels with paper and glue attached that can’t be recycled. The bags they give you with all of your products inside are made from the same plastic in the bags at the grocery store. However, some of the cannabis dispensaries have improved to some extent. My cannabis delivery order yesterday came in a paper bag and all of the products were in recyclable glass jars. I’m happy to see the cannabis dispensaries are making an effort to reduce pollution.
