Legal cannabis sales are projected to grow to $40 billion by 2025, with marijuana accounting for the bulk of the market, according to Nielsen.

As the number of states with legal cannabis use grows—34 states have medical marijuana use laws, and 11 states and the District of Columbia allow adults 21 and older to use marijuana for recreational purposes—convenience retailers are wading into this emerging opportunity to continue to serve their customers, who are looking to satisfy a variety of need states.

To build on this momentum, NACS gathered an exclusive group of 50 convenience and fuel retailers and suppliers in Las Vegas on December 10, 2019 to explore “The Future of Cannabis in Retail,” the first NACS one-day pop-up event.
