2022 Predictions and Prophecies

Watch out for the east coast. With the legalization of recreational marijuana in New York, the east coast is becoming its own powerhouse in the industry. While it is still going to take some time to distribute licenses, establish brands and create a solid structure for the business we’re all curious to see what NY and the east coast will do. Getting in early and making a name for yourself can (as we always say) be an equation for long-term success.

California is still trying to figure it out. With the continuing issue of high taxes and difficult climate issues, the California cannabis market is struggling. And we are all watching tentatively to see what exactly will happen. While sustainability and drought are forcing innovation for growers high tax rates are pushing more and more back to the black market where prices are more reasonable.

There are many more predictions, so check them out here for what to look for in 2022.

Regulatory Pulse Point

Social equity is one of the most important aspects of federal legalization. It’s no secret that those in the African American and Latino communities are disproportionally punished for marijuana-related charges. Many are working towards creating a foundation aware and inclusive of those who have felt the harshest effects of the war on drugs. Gary Chambers U.S. Senate candidate from Louisiana openly showed his support for federal legalization in a to-the-point campaign ad of 37 seconds that hits hard.
