California is set to join the legal weed party Jan. 1 when recreational sales become official in the Golden State.
The state was one of four, including Nevada, that voted in 2016 to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. With sales projected to top $5 billion once the market gets up and running, California’s cannabis corner is expected to be by far the nation’s largest.
Nevada’s fledgling market got off to such a hot start this summer by selling more than $85 million in recreational marijuana during the first three months of legal sales.
But having a big competitor nearby shouldn’t be a problem.
