Missouri is set to become the latest red state to launch recreational marijuana sales, a development that has undoubtedly caught the attention of cannabis operators and voters in neighboring Oklahoma, which will hold a special election next month on whether to legalize adult-use marijuana. Recreational marijuana sales could begin as early as Friday in Missouri, where medical dispensaries are awaiting approval from state regulators to expand into the adult-use retail sector. The newly opened Midwest market is expected to generate more than $5 billion in sales in its first year. Its launch comes a year after Montana began selling adult-use marijuana. Missouri, like Montana and Oklahoma, has a Republican trifecta, with Republicans controlling the governor and both houses of the legislature. Missouri adult-use operators hope to attract customers from the center and south.
