Welcome to Marijuana Venture’s inaugural feature exploring the various U.S regions in which the legal cannabis industry operates.
This monthly series will provide insight into the regulations, sales, trade organizations, operators and the future potential for each region’s state market as well as the cultural identities which bind these states together as a region and an overview of those still resisting marijuana legalization.
This month Marijuana Venture proudly presents Cannabis in the Pacific Northwest, with extensive looks at two of the industry’s oldest recreational markets, Washington and Oregon, and Idaho, a state that, until recently, has had virtually no momentum toward any cannabis legalization or decriminalization for nearly a century.
In the following pages we will showcase the evolution of Washington and Oregon’s cannabis markets and the current states of both markets, including a breakdown of the licensing structure and number of licensees, the cost to participate, the trade groups helping to shape each state market and the trends both states saw during the past eight years of legal cannabis sales, as well as the current legalization efforts in Idaho.
Next month, Marijuana Venture will look at Alaska and the Rocky Mountain states including Colorado, Montana, Wyoming and Utah, followed by other regions in future months.
