California Already Dominates the Legal Pot Market

If you thought Colorado had the upper hand on legal pot sales, think again. The Golden State is crushing the legal pot market even before Proposition 64 has fully kicked in.

You can’t even buy weed without a medical card in California yet, but we still account for more than one-fourth of all legal marijuana sales, according to cannabis research firm Arcview Group.

“California accounted for 27 percent of the 2016 legal market in North America,” Arcview reports.”Colorado represented 20 percent and Washington represented 11 percent.”

Remember, recreational weed is already available for purchase in Colorado and Washington. Just imagine the numbers once California’s regulatory system is in place.

We'll be watching.
