State Medicinal Pot Business Has Cloudy Future

(Chicago, IL) — A market research company doesn’t like the outlook for the state’s medical marijuana business. The “Chicago Tribune” reports ArcView Market Research projects that the sales could reach just 15-point-six-million-dollars this year, and just 23-million next year. Those numbers are less than the 36-million-dollars ArcView predicted last year for Illinois’ medical pot business. Illinois’ medical pot business is operating under a pilot program that will expire at the end of next year, unless lawmakers intervene.
