With every U.S. state that goes "green," we see cannabis companies eager to serve these legalized markets.
The latest state to draw cannabis investment is none other than Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is one of the biggest markets in the country when you look at the number of medical cannabis cardholders per resident. It's estimated that nearly 5% of Oklahoma residents have a medical card, with 15.6 cannabis dispensaries per 100,000 residents. That puts it second only to Oregon.
Doctors in Oklahoma are able to prescribe medical cannabis for any condition. As of Jan. 20, the state had 235,786 patients.
