Last year, the legal marijuana market was worth an estimated $7.2 billion, and it's projected to grow 17 percent annually, according to an analysis by New Frontier Data. Medical marijuana sales alone are expected to grow from $4.7 billion to $13.3 billion from 2016-2020. To say that the marijuana industry will slow down when heading into 2018 is far-fetched, especially because that's when California and Canada's recreational marijuana programs will go into effect. Fortunately, the marijuana industry has created and continues to create a surplus of employment opportunities, which have significantly boosted the U.S. economy. Read on to find out what the marijuana industry may look like in 2018 and onwards.

The California Bureau of Cannabis Control says that the time has come for marijuana legalization. On Jan. 1, recreational marijuana will be legal for adults 21 and older. California is expected to exceed by far the tax revenue brought in by other recreational marijuana states. Colorado brought in around $200 million in taxes for 2016 with recreational and medical marijuana sales, but California is estimated to bring in at least $1 billion in tax revenue with recreational cannabis sales alone.

Colorado recently passed the five-year mark. It's been five whole years since voters in the state opted to legalized marijuana use for those of us age 21 and up. Though recreational marijuana dispensaries did not open in Colorado till the beginning of 2014, the ballot measure, titled Amendment 64, had built in a formula for tax revenue deposition.
