Will MMJ Programs Eventually Fizzle Out?




A recently concluded observational study has shown that enrollment in Medical cannabis programs quadrupled during this period: 2016 to 2020. (

Fair enough.
However, this trend was only observed in states with medical-only cannabis programs and not in states that have legal adult-use programs as well.

In adult-use states, the enrollment plateaued and in most cases, it dipped. A plausible explanation could be that a good number of medical cannabis patients in legal states preferred to obtain their medication from legal marijuana dispensaries, whatever the motivation.
So, is it accurate to deduce that if more states legalize recreational weed, increasingly more MMJ patients will opt out of MMJ programs and instead source their cannabis from adult-use dispensaries?
Let me know what you think.
