Legalizing marijuana created a billion dollar industry, with states such as Colorado using the tax revenue for schools and opiate use prevention programs. The future of the cannabis industry is large and promising, with an increasing number of states legalizing it each year. Trade shows and expos such as these are not only enlightening but valuable sources of education, resources, and community for those involved.
