The newly appointed
chief of the Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation predicts licensed pot
businesses soon might rival or even outnumber sanctioned booze businesses in
“I do think we’re
going to have a big licensing population here in California as it relates to
cannabis,” Lori Ajax said.
There were 88,490
active alcohol licenses last year. That indicates Ajax – a.k.a. “the pot czar”
– will have a big task before her and a lot of eyes on her, with California
already estimated to account for half of the nation’s marijuana industry.
We all know cannabis
is a huge industry in Humboldt, with estimates suggesting the industry accounts
for 40-60% of our local economy.
