The increasing legalization of recreational marijuana across the country has many people asking questions about the cannabis industry. Because of the overall lack of resources online, we created this website for you – the weed enthusiast. Although laws are still being hashed out and the cannabis industry continues to grow at a rapid pace, it’s our hope to provide you with useful, comprehensive information to keep you informed and well-prepared for your next trip.




29 states and the District of Columbia have now legalized cannabis for medical and/or recreational purposes and public acceptance of cannabis continues to increase at a rapid pace. Cannabis has also shown encouraging signs as a treatment for various medical conditions and ailments, which should make the space of interest to investors and business enthusiasts. While cannabis remains federally illegal in the United States and publicly-traded cannabis companies are located overseas, it has grown to a $9 Billion industry in the U.S. and all estimates have it growing above $24 Billion over the next few years.

 Entrepreneurs are navigating the same federal regulations, a smaller pool of investors require more education and require insight to battle the market stigma. Cannabis entrepreneurs tend to be first-time entrepreneurs and lack experience in scaling businesses and securing investments.

Leafwire exists to help usher in the new cannabis economy by educating and connecting the entrepreneurs and investors that will build this industry.
