Increased adult-use of cannabis products are pushing the market upward

Earlier this year, California began legal sales of cannabis products for recreational use and since then, further political changes have been planned. Meanwhile, states reap the benefits from the new growing market.

Fortune reported that, "in order to collect USD 1 Billion a year in taxes, the state will need to reach a projected USD 7 Billion in annual legal recreational cannabis sales.

At that rate, California would easily be the country's largest legal marijuana market, as the entire legal cannabis industry in the U.S. is expected to pull in roughly USD 10 Billion in total sales for 2017.

That number would almost certainly get a boost in the coming years, as legal markets grow in California and other states, such as Nevada and Massachusetts.”
