In the 2016 elections, Maine, California, and Massachusetts all legalized the recreational use of Marijuana. With this change coming, there will soon be eight states with recreational marijuana laws.

California will be opening their retail marijuana shops on the 1st of January, while Maine and Massachusetts are set to open in the summer of 2018. Green Alternative, a medical dispensary in California, currently has over 10,000 patients and they are preparing to add even more with the upcoming legalization of recreational marijuana.

Massachusetts is set to open retail marijuana shops on July 1, 2018, and the state could not be more excited. As being one of the first to legalize marijuana out east, they are eager to enter the industry.
