New York’s green rush is heating up with legal adult-use sales imminent. The state’s marijuana market is projected to rake in $7 billion annually within three years, eclipsing California as the country’s cannabis leader. With no cap on licenses and a population ready to dive in, all signs point to profit for the Empire State. The state is already experiencing an influx of out-of-state operators and brands landing in the Big Apple looking to set up shop. A recent New York Times article stated over 60,000 jobs will be created in the first few years of legal sales. New York is set to become a pillar of East Coast cannabis, with other states in the region likely to follow its lead.
