In the Golden State, weed is a big deal. As the state embraces legal weed, there are going to be some big changes – a new set of rules for those who wish to make the leap from under-the-table to aboveboard. One definite change will be buyers – i.e. whom can buy and sell weed.

Over the past few months we’ve embarked upon a series comparing the emergence of Silicon Valley’s tech industry, Napa County’s wine industry, and Humboldt County’s cannabis industry. We’ve all heard comparisons like these:

Hearing this comparison we decided to delve a little deeper, we decided research what led to the emergence of Silicon’s tech industry and Napa’s wine industry, and compare them to the emergence of Humboldt’s cannabis industry. We examined Napa and Silicon Valley as ideal types, conducting a meta-analysis to deduce potential variables that led to the rise of these industry epicenters.
