As winter fades and spring approaches, the cannabis industry has already seen a flurry of positive news at the state level. Just as the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, this February is bringing another round of positive developments in the legal cannabis world.
One exciting piece of news is the emergence of Missouri as a new player in the game. In November’s midterms, Missouri voters legalized recreational marijuana use under Amendment 3, and the state began selling weed on Feb. 6. This is a major win for advocates of the War on Drugs and legal cannabis markets.
At the forefront of this movement is the belief that people should have the right to choose whether or not to consume cannabis, and Missouri has taken a major step in this direction. The early signs of development in Missouri are promising, and we are confident that the state will soon see the many benefits that legalized weed brings to the table.
For those investing in the cannabis industry, state-level progress is a major driver of growth, and Missouri is sure to make a positive impact. Congratulations, Missouri, on this exciting step forward!
