Growing Marijuana Industry
While still in its infancy, CBS 8 News Now reported, the nation’s cannabis industry is already estimated to be worth $5 billion to $6 billion and is expected to continue growing significantly in the next few years.
According to FOX 5 News KVVU’s report, this year’s conference was unique in that, besides the professionals and investors who normally attend the conference, it attracted people across the spectrum who were interested in learning how to participate in the billion-dollar market.
