California is the undisputed champion of cannabis in the United States. California was the first state to legalize cannabis for medical use, and while California was not the first state to legalize cannabis for adult use, it is the largest state to do so by far. I have seen estimates putting half of America’s entire cannabis industry within the borders of California.
Adult-use sales are set to begin in California on January 1st, which is just days away. I will not be in California for the first day of sales, but if I was, there is one place I would definitely hit up – Harborside. Harborside is the largest cannabis dispensary on the planet and was founded by one of my favorite people in the cannabis space Steve DeAngelo.
Harborside posted the following message on an event page it set up for the first day of legal adult-use sales in California:
Join us at 6AM on New Year’s Day at Harborside Oakland, recently named the state’s best dispensary, to celebrate the first legal cannabis sale in California — there’ll be prizes and festivities, and all those 21 and up are welcome. #harborside #CannabisForAll
