Oregon, unofficially known as the Beaver State, is home to just under 4.2 million people as well as a booming cannabis industry. With companies like Golden Leaf Holdings Ltd. (CSE:GLH) (OTC:GLDFF) announcing major business developments in Oregon, it can be hard to ignore the opportunities.
While there's only 15 medical marijuana dispensaries registered by the Oregon Health Authority, there's a whopping 540 retail marijuana dispensaries registered with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.
The sheer size of the combined retail and medical marijuana industries is just one of the many reasons that investors look to Oregon for opportunity within the cannabis sector.
