Counting October's transactions, dispensaries have already sold over $1.46 billion worth of weed products this year, state data shows.

Even though marijuana will soon be legal, “Illinois employers have the right to say you cannot have any cannabis is your system if you want to work at this corporation.”

More than 35,000 people from 75 countries are expected to attend the three-day conference that occupied 250,000 square feet of the sprawling Las Vegas Convention Center. Last year, the footprint was half that size.

Long lines, heavy demand, temporary shortages and purchase limits highlighted the first week of recreational marijuana sales in Michigan when a handful of licensed businesses rang up $1.63 million in sales.

“All of the biggest agricultural companies in the world want our genetics. Those people aren’t coming into our industry now, they’ve been doing it for a decade, and they’ve been doing it pretty much under the radar."

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker expects cannabis cultivation jobs to double as the cannabis market opens for legal recreational sales beginning Jan. 1.
