Pot Legalization Could Spell End to California’s Medical Marijuana Industry

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.
