Avocados Are More Popular Than Ever

If you’re a guacamole fan, get ready to pay more for your avocados. Due to a global increase in demand and reduced harvests from major producers, avocado prices are at a record high. A 10-kilogram box of Hass avocados from Mexico sells for roughly $27.89, which is more than double last year’s prices. After the growers strike in Mexico and the California drought that caused a low supply, analysts expect these prices to remain at “elevated levels.” Production in California is supposed to be down by about 44% this year, so it doesn’t help that the U.S. is the world’s largest avocado consumer and importer.

That's because most major sports leagues follow drug guidelines set by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which bans athletes from using cannabis even outside of competition.
