Wildcard Factor: U.S. Midterm Elections
It’s been a historic year for U.S. cannabis: streamlining California’s rec market, regulating cannabis-based pharmaceuticals and subsequently re-scheduling CBD — just to name a few.
Four U.S. states have marijuana on the ballot on Nov. 6, and there’s no doubt midterm elections will determine certain conversations and decisions at MJBizCon.
Prediction: Cannabis legalization is increasingly one of the least partisan issues in U.S. politics. Left to the whim of the voters, all we can do is wait and see. Be prepared with our 2018 Election Coverage.
