“The State of Legal Marijuana Markets has been an ongoing source of priceless market data for my company and associated investments I am involved with. Without the report, my ability to report to my company’s Board of Directors would be a significantly more time consuming process. The report is unbiased and conservative, allowing its readers to build their own opinions vs. guessing at the author’s agenda.”

Chris Walker, CEO, Radiant Led Growth Systems

“The report is a “must-have” for any serious investor, executive, or stakeholder in the legal marijuana space. We have become quite active as principal investors in the sector; however, finding both qualitative and quantitative industry data can be challenging. The reports produced by Arcview Group and BDS Analytics deliver on all fronts and are now part of our investment process.”
