Marijuana Tomorrow

Episode 89 - It’s All About the BOOM in Cannabis Revenues

January 7, 2022

This week we’ll take a look at big sale of MJBiz, the media and event company behind MJBizCon, to Emerald Holdings for $120 million, and then we’ll look at Bloomberg’s projections that cannabis taxes may yield $12 billion for states by 2030, while Illinois generated almost $100 million more in tax revenue from adult-use marijuana sales than from alcohol in 2021.  And finally, I’ll be talking to friend of the show Dr. Amanda Reiman about her new role as the New Vice President of Public Policy Research for New Frontier Data.

We’ll be discussing those stories and more on the BEST cannabis podcast in the business...

As we like to say around here, “Everyone knows what happened in marijuana today, but you need to know what’s happening in Marijuana Tomorrow!
