A chill wind is blowing in the Windy City and it’s not a wintery blast from Lake Michigan. It’s the cold freeze of an industry without any customers.

In New York, the strict rules for qualification into the program have inhibited participation, too.

From December 23rd until January 7th, the New York program approved only 53 patients for the program. By January 16th it was up to 165.

There are eight dispensaries open across the entire state.

Although the inception of any program involves a gradual increase in participation, this is far more gradual than expected, prompting the Associated Press to declare the program’s launch a “Slow start”.

The problem with the New York program includes the limited types of the marijuana medicines they allow (non-smoked forms only), the nature of the illnesses that would qualify one for participation (far fewer than other states), and the degree of complexity in the patient certification process (stiff requirements).

Pot States Take Fresh Look At Out-Of-State Investment

DENVER (AP) -- States that have legalized pot are taking a fresh look at making it easier for out-of-state investors to get in the weed business, saying the industry's ongoing difficulty in banking means they need new options to finance expansion.

The four states that allow recreational pot sales - Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington - have another big reason to take a new look at pot investment. That's California, the nation's most populous state and largest marijuana producer, though it allows the drug only for people with certain medical ailments.

California voters could approve recreational pot this fall, giving the nascent pot industries in the other states reason to want to attract investment now, before a giant enters the picture. California has no ban on out-of-state owners, pressuring other pot states to loosen the rules before California opens for business.
