    There’s absolutely no evidence that the cannabis industry is collapsing or even close to a collapse, and in fact there is plenty of evidence that shows it will only continue to get stronger.

    More than half of the U.S. has either a medical cannabis program, a recreational cannabis program, or both. There’s only a select few states that have YET to implement programs, but legislation is currently being written for those states, or the state is already on it’s way to implementing programs.

    In purely economical terms, the sales of legal cannabis have grown exponentially since their inceptions, and even though they may plateau at some point – which is obviously inevitable – I doubt we’ll see a sharp decrease in sales that would even suggest a “collapse”.
