Washington CannaBusiness Association: Economic Impact Analysis

In 2021, High Peak Strategy LLC conducted a statewide analysis of the recreational, adult-use cannabis industry in Washington state, including the employment revenues, employment, income, and taxes generated directly and through secondary impacts.

The report also examined Washington’s existing regulatory and tax policies on adult-use cannabis, compared these with other states that have legalized adult-use cannabis, and identified specific policies that may be inhibiting scalability of the industry in Washington state. Findings were used by the Washington CannaBusiness Association to advocate for state-level policies to support the industry.
