Gubernatorial changes might bode well for marijuana market growth

In many states across the country, cannabis reform has been held up by state political leaders. That, in turn, has stalled and stunted business opportunities in the industry.

In short, the person who sits in the governor’s mansion can have a big influence over whether state-level reform efforts proceed.

Such reforms can include supporting legalization efforts, leading the implementation of voter initiatives and making the market more business friendly with moves such as adding qualifying patient conditions to a medical marijuana program.

That’s why this year’s midterm elections may be critical on a state level.
