Marijuana Stocks To Watch As The Sale Of Legal Cannabis Soon Begins For NY & NYC
On the other end of the cannabis industry, many ventures have taken place that may help marijuana stocks. Specifically with state-level legislation. Going back over a year residents of New Jersey voted to legalize the adult use of marijuana. In recent news, the sale of legal weed is soon about to start for New Jersey as well as NYC. A state commission has permitted seven medical-marijuana companies to start selling cannabis to all adults at 13 dispensaries.
The sale of recreational marijuana is allowed to commence once each of the 7 companies pays $1 million in fees. These fees are affiliated with the expanded licenses. To which will meet other bureaucratic conditions to achieve final approval. The commission approved 13 individual dispensaries, which will be scattered throughout New Jersey. This will include several that are within a half-hour drive of New York City. With sales about to begin this will be a pathway for more MSO cannabis companies to come in and set up shop. Not to mention there are more states soon to vote on whether they will legalize cannabis for medical and adult use.
Yet with New York and New Jersey having the potential to see large revenue will marijuana stocks react well to what’s happening. When states go legal or start the sale of cannabis as mentioned above it can be a momentum driver for multi-state operators. As well as some pure-play cannabis companies due to having the ability to work within these new markets. Not every cannabis company can easily obtain a license in other markets.
