What If the Sports World Fully Embraced Cannabis?

At this point, cannabis is not part of the modern sporting experience. But what if it were? Boardroom uses artificial intelligence to imagine a world in which fans could get lifted while watching their favorite teams.

What would the sports world look like if it fully embraced cannabis as part of its business function?

Over the course of the last decade, sports have welcomed formerly taboo industries, including sports betting and cryptocurrency. Similarly, you can’t watch your favorite team without encountering some sort of marketing tactic for a major liquor or beer brand. However, amidst this all, cannabis is still strictly verboten in venues across America.

Throughout the U.S., 24 states and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational use, reflecting a potential future in which cannabis becomes an acceptable vice.

This got us thinking: how might the sporting landscape evolve to embrace cannabis? We used artificial intelligence to conceptualize arenas, merchandise, and sponsorships in a cannabis-friendly sports world. From budtenders to smoking lounges, we break it all down.
