The legal cannabis industry is projected to be a multi-billion dollar industry within the next 10 years, and Colorado is considered to be the epicenter of cannabis entrepreneurial expansion. People are moving from all over America and the rest of the world to snag a slice of the cannabis industry pie, thus creating a great environment for consumers who should enjoy a vast array of new marijuana products. Whether you are an aspiring cannabis business startup or a marijuana enthusiast, Colorado is a great city to thrive in 2016.

While capitalism takes charge in Colorado’s capital, it also attracts people who need cannabis as a medicine for their family members. With the huge benefits it has on people suffering from daily seizures, marijuana can attract whole families to move to Colorado. This does wonders for the families, as well as enhancing Colorado’s already booming economy.
