Cannabis in Colorado
Over the course of the coming months, Marijuana Venture will explore every legal market in the country with a series focused on each state’s ever-changing rules and regulations, market trends, state demographics, business leaders and more.
Colorado has been at the forefront of legalization in America since allowing medical marijuana in 2000 and establishing a comprehensive licensing program for dispensaries in 2008, the first of its kind and a model that would allow the Centennial State to transition with relative ease from a medical-only market to a medical and recreational market following the historic vote legalizing the adult use of marijuana in 2012.
Rec sales began on New Year’s Day 2014, and Colorado has exploded into one of the most lucrative markets in the country. With sales booming in 2020, Colorado could hit $2 billion in sales and shows no signs of slowing down.
Next, Marijuana Venture will look at Washington, followed by Oregon, Alaska, California and other states in future months. For information about upcoming issues or to learn about advertising and sponsorship opportunities, email Editor@MarijuanaVenture.com.
