2021 was a nothing burger of a year for cannabis policy, regulation, and legislation.  The year came in with the optimism of a giant hot air balloon and slowly but surely that optimism for change leaked out.  By the end of the year, legalization supporters felt more like a helium balloon a week after a 5 year old’s birthday party.

For those of us who follow marijuana policy and the cannabis industry, 2021 kicked off with optimism at the positive changes to come.  After all, for nearly a decade, state after state have legalized marijuana and implemented new legal cannabis markets.  2020 was a banner year at the state level, particularly during the November election when four states legalized by record numbers, including deep red states like Montana and South Dakota.

Investors in the cannabis industry took notice.  At the start of 2021 publicly traded cannabis companies and multi-state operators saw major rebounds in the stock prices, which were still recovering from the industry wide crash of 2019.  Most cannabis companies saw record high valuations at the start of the year.

Then suddenly… nothing happened.  Well, to be fair, very little happened. 2021 year did have some notable accomplishments, particularly at the state level where the legislatures in New York, Virginia, New Mexico and Connecticut joined the growing list of legal...read the rest here
