When we held the First Annual NICI Retreat in Las Vegas, we knew Sin City was going to be tough to beat. But turns out the next "hot spot" for a cannabis retreat could be… Massachusetts.
It might be surprising that's the state catching our eye – but consider the latest cannabis sales data…
From Nov. 20, 2018, to Nov. 20, 2019, nearly $400 million worth of cannabis was sold in Massachusetts. That's very impressive for a few reasons…
First, at the end of November, there were only 36 recreational dispensaries open in the state. There's not even a single recreational dispensary currently open in Boston.
Compare that to Colorado. When legal recreational sales went live there, it generated $300 million with 306 retailers licensed in 2014.
So, Massachusetts' $400 million in sales is very significant for cannabis profits.
