U.S.-based cannabis multistate operators (MSOs) – both public and private – have hit the ground running in 2019 as they race to gain market share and establish a dominant brand.
MSOs accounted for the top five raises on the CSE – totaling $1.52 billion.
That trend is expected to continue in 2019, as MSOs are poised to deploy hundreds of millions of dollars as they hustle to open new operations and dispensaries in key states, including:
- Florida, where the state’s massive medical marijuana program is poised to continue to grow.
- New York, where leaders are pushing forward on plans to legalize recreational marijuana.
- California, Massachusetts and Michigan, where newly launched recreational markets are opening up a host of attractive investment opportunities.
