Missouri was among them, and although medical cannabis sales are slated to start later this month, the Show-Me State recently completed the first-ever transfer of cannabis revenue to a state’s veteran fund.

420 with CNW – IRS Publishes Tax Guidance for Cannabis Industry

The U.S. cannabis industry has been in a precarious position for the past few years.
