WA Pot Consultant says Marijuana Revenue Estimate Way Off

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington state's marijuana consultant says revenue estimates of how much money legalization can bring have been way off.
    
Consultant Mark Kleiman says several factors like competition from the medical marijuana market, illegal sales and high prices may affect the demand for the planned legal source of marijuana.
    
Initial estimates said the state could bring more than $400 million a year from the marijuana market.
    
Kleiman says that if the state sees $100 million in revenue during the first fiscal, it would be a good start.
