In the U.S., the potential financial benefits from legalization are important economically and politically. In states like California for example, where new recreational cannabis laws are in effect as of the beginning of 2018, analysts are projecting an increase in sales of cannabis contributing to California's tax revenue and job creation. Arcview Group estimates that it will lead to the creation of nearly 99,000 cannabis industry jobs in the state by 2021, about a third of all cannabis jobs nationwide, and 146,000 jobs overall. Troy Dayton, CEO of The Arcview Group explained, "The economic excitement around the legal cannabis industry is no longer just theory. Due to the giant impact adult-use legalization is already having in the United States, it's vital for key stakeholders to understand the full impact of legalization, beyond just retail sales numbers."
