"In flux" is one way to describe the many and ever-changing federal, state, and local laws and regulations governing the production, distribution, and sale of medical and recreational marijuana or cannabis. As more states start to decriminalize the medical and recreational use of cannabis, laws around other controlled substances (such as psilocybin, which comes from certain types of Psilocybe mushrooms) are also starting to evolve. For the foreseeable future, this presents a challenging landscape for those who are interested in entering into business in this industry.
