Adam Bierman, Chief Executive Officer of cannabis investment firm MedMen Capital believes that the City of Angels will steal the spotlight from the Mile High City. Forbes has reported that according to Bierman, by some estimates, Los Angeles's medical marijuana market alone is already close to $1 billion, easily overshadowing Colorado's entire market. The city is expected to pass an ordinance in 2017 that will clear the path for a proper licensing program and open up the recreational market. Bierman said that capital is flowing into the area for local ventures as investors begin to smell money in the emerging market.
