We cannot divorce ourselves from the fact that looking back in time, we are living a strange reality with a new paradigm shift in the galaxy of medical cannabis and adult use; nonetheless, one that is comforting, but reminds us of the days when we thought that the future and/or success of cannabis was impossible, nevertheless now medical cannabis has become a reality in different states as well as different countries. This time it was Missouri’s turn, particularly because the people of Missouri fought hard to make sure that their voices were heard and came out to vote and say yes to medical cannabis. Today, Missouri is looking forward and sees a long but interesting road. But what are the roadblocks ahead?
The answer applies to any industry, or even people; everyone travels the same road in different ways. New obstacles will come, and others will go away. We are witnessing the agronomic, chemical, medicinal and economic advances that have been achieved by states and countries that have undertaken new medical cannabis programs. Thus, new challenges have emerged that give commercial form to this emerging, nascent, vibrant industry, but it doesn’t come without trials and tribulations, such as the search for investment and the proper handling of taxes, that are currently as vital as a good crop. Are we prepared to find solutions?
