Legal and financial risk parameters are difficult to define, and industry data and analysis are minimal. Regardless, increased capital is flowing steadily into the industry. Startup resources including finance, logistics, software, and consulting are materializing rapidly.

Estimates of the number of retail marijuana establishments in the US range from about 3,000 to 5,000. No major companies dominate the industry.
