The cannabis industry is quickly becoming big business. Last year, U.S. consumer spending eclipsed $10 billion for the first time. Spending is projected to increase to $23 billion by 2022. Investment activity boomed last year, increasing to $13.8 billion in total value from $3.6 billion the year before.
All this growth comes amidst continued federal prohibition of the industry’s staple product. Currently, 33 states (plus Washington, D.C.) have a legal medical cannabis program, while 10 states (plus D.C.) have legalized cannabis for adult use. As more states legalize cannabis and debate about the potential end of federal prohibition reaches the halls of Congress, the cannabis industry’s prospects continue to brighten.
Is 2019 the year that you should get involved in the cannabis industry?
At this week’s METal will discuss where the opportunities are, and how should you go about breaking into the space? The cannabis industry business ideas will get you started thinking about what it takes to become a cannabis entrepreneur.
