How do you know it's time to legalize marijuana?

When a former U.S. marshal who votes with the Republicans on virtually every other issue comes around on the issue.

State Sen. Mike Regan is about as conservative as it gets — and even he's planning to introduce a bill that would allow for the recreational use of pot for those 21 and older.

Everyone wants a piece of the cake.

There is a long list of states that may be the next to legalize the use, possession, and cultivation of recreational cannabis in the United States of America. While some are going to have to do through the ballot boxes, others may do so through their legislature.

The Latest IRS Initiative Could Positively Impact Cannabis

IRS

The tax man is extending a helpful hand to marijuana business owners, not something we would normally see for the cannabis industry. 

In an announcement posted on its website late last month, the Internal Revenue Service unveiled its new “Cannabis/Marijuana Initiative,” billed as a “groundbreaking effort” by the agency to assist such business owners as they navigate the often confounding U.S. tax code.

The goal of the initiative, the agency said, “is to implement a strategy to increase voluntary compliance with the tax law while also identifying and addressing non-compliance,” a move the IRS believes “will positively impact filing, payment and reporting compliance on the part of all businesses involved in the growing, distribution and sales of cannabis/marijuana.”

A total of 36 states have legalized cannabis and 18 of those states have approved recreational use for those 21 years and older.

Slow-Paced Federal Legalization Could Be an Opportunity, Not a Setback for Cannabis Investors

 
While the lack of federal legalization has made some investors hesitant to add cannabis companies to their portfolios, Intrinsic Capital Partners sees that as one of the things that makes the cannabis investment space so attractive. It’s a hyper-growth market, projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.5% over the next decade. Still, because it’s not federally legal, most traditional sources of capital and strategics haven’t felt comfortable entering the space yet.
