Once again some users peer to the north and wonder why not us? NY state (residence) may be one of the last going open market in the NE not because it has a shortage of users, but in part because they are looking for the most easily administered and profitable distribution model. Sadly, this means watching other states and possibly Canada shape the regional marketplace to a large degree, but in the end they will have a taxation and control model they want. The actual retailing of the product will probably resemble that of alcohol. with everything from high end niche markets through midrange mass reach retailers all the way down to gas stations/convenience store outlets. but the back end will be unique to the state. If only the whole nation had started working on a national market model years ago we could all be legal by now and not suffering from northern green envy.
