Recreational marijuana is set to become legal for anyone 21 and over in California on Monday, January 1, 2018. According to a study by the University of California Agricultural Issues Center, recreational marijuana being legalized will drop revenue for the sale of medical marijuana from $2 billion to about $1.4 billion next year. Despite this, recreational marijuana should bring in over $5 billion, as it captures around 62% of sales.
In the months leading up to legal sales of recreational marijuana, many people have noticed that a large amount of the heavily guarded medical dispensaries they normally go to are allowing them to go in without state-issued IDs. As recreational marijuana is getting even closer to being legalized, recommendation letters are becoming a nuisance.
