2016 Colorado Legal Cannabis Market State Profile
Colorado remains the most influential adult use market in the country and it has set a high bar for regulatory effectiveness and operational efficiency for the states that will follow. Since activation of the first licensed dispensaries for adult use cannabis in January 2014, adult use cannabis has generated approximately $1.6 billion sales and the state government has raised nearly $367 million in revenue from taxes on both medical and adult use sales licensing fees.
2016 Washington Legal Cannabis Market State Profile
Over the past 18 months, Washington has undergone some of the most dramatic changes to any regulated cannabis program in the country. From lowering the tax rates to consolidating the medical and adult use markets into a single channel these changes are intended to streamline the market and eliminating structural inefficiencies. However, it will be at least another year before we understand the full impact of all the changes on product supply and consumer behavior.
2016 Massachusetts Legal Cannabis Market State Profile
As one of the first New England states to legalize cannabis for adult use, Massachusetts represents a significant opportunity for business owners and entrepreneurs in the space. There are no limitations on product forms or statewide caps on retail dispensary licenses, which means the market could potentially become a billion dollar market by 2020. The full regulatory structure and key program details of the adult use market remain to be determined, and the market could take a few different directions depending on the actions of the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission and local municipalities across the state.
2016 Florida Legal Cannabis Market State ProfileNew Frontier Data, in partnership with Arcview Market Research, has released the 2016 Florida Legal Cannabis Market State Profile.
On November 8, 2016, Florida voters overwhelmingly approved Amendment 2 with more than 70% of the vote. Florida was the most significant state to pass medical cannabis laws in the November 2016 election due to its sheer size and large elderly population. The market’s future will be heavily dependent on decisions at the local level. Individual jurisdictions can enact moratoriums on legal cannabis sales, and this local autonomy could greatly impede initial market growth in the state.
2016 Arizona Legal Cannabis Market State Profile
New Frontier Data, in partnership with Arcview Market Research, has released the 2016 Florida Legal Cannabis Market State Profile.
On November 8, 2016, Arizona was the only state with a legalization measure during the 2016 election that did not pass. The failure of the Arizona’s Marijuana Legalization Initiative (Proposition 205) was a notable loss for the cannabis industry on a day which saw the industry’s biggest electoral victories. Passage of Prop. 205 would have provided a symbolic victory for cannabis in the historically socially conservative state, while creating a market with an attractive structure for investors and entrepreneurs. However, with the measure’s failure, Arizona will remain a highly competitive medical-only market for the foreseeable future.
