Prices Crater in Washington & Drive Sales 
September 11, 2016

The average cost of a single gram of flower in Washington has fallen dramatically over the past two years, from $44.43 in July 2014 to $12.95 in May 2016. These declines have been fueled by two main factors - the rapid increase in the number of cannabis producers in the state, of which there are now over 1,000, resulting in more market competition, and the increasing size of the producers, enabling them to capture more economies of scale. This decline in prices has been matched by a similarly strong growth in monthly sales, which approached $100 million, as an ever greater proportion of cannabis users transition from the illicit market into the increasingly cost-competitive legal market.

Raising money in the fast growing legal cannabis market is getting increasingly difficult. As you can see by our analysis above, in Washington state alone there has been an increase in licensed cannabis businesses from 40 to over 1,000 in just two years.

"MARY JANES: THE WOMEN OF WEED is the latest film coming from documentary director Windy Borman. The director's two previous films, 'The Eyes of Thailand' (2012) and 'The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia' (2012), have won awards, opened minds, and celebrated the heroics that result when seemingly everyday people persevere in the good struggle. Borman's newest foray into steadfast action in difficult circumstances focuses on several female pioneers in the burgeoning legal-marijuana movement and economy.
