Colorado-based edibles maker Wana Brands announced a planned expansion into six new marijuana states by the end of 2018, another example of how the cannabis industry is increasingly becoming a national business.

Wana, which already has products available in Nevada and Oregon aside from its home state, will be in Arizona sometime this month, according to a company news release.

In 2018, Wana plans to be available in Illinois and Florida in the first quarter, in Maryland in the second quarter and in California and Pennsylvania by the end of the year.

That’s a total of nine states in which Wana Brands will have a market presence, likely alongside other MJ companies that are also looking to establish a national footprint.
