MORONGO BASIN — At the start of the new year, recreational marijuana became legal in the state of California, marking a shift in the California marijuana industry and the state’s overall economy.

With the passing of Proposition 64, marijuana market data firm BDS Analytics, estimated that $1.5 billion in additional revenue could flood into California this fiscal year.

Marijuana sales are illegal in the Morongo Basin, but in the nearby Riverside County desert cities, recreational marijuana storefronts and farms are already emerging. Cannabis businesses from across the state gathered for the Coachella Valley Cannabis Alliance Network Convention this weekend.

“This convention was an opportunity to bring all the businesses and politicians together,” said Jason Elsasser, founder and president of CVCAN. “Coachella Valley is positioned as the supply hub of California and this event is catered to these businesses.”
