CALIFORNIA IS REPORTADLY SUPPLYING 5 TIMES MORE MARIJUANA 🌿THAN THERE IS DEMAND.
Back In 1996, California made history as the first state to legalize medical marijuana and this past November, voters collectively decided that recreational use should be within their rights as well.
That still doesn’t mean the population is smoking their keep. Joseph Devlin, chief of Cannabis Policy and Enforcement for City of Sacramento, said his calculations deduce that Cali is producing five times more than their actual consumption and Lori Ajax, chief of the state’s Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation, agrees that the foreseeable scale backs will deter would-be growers from doing the right thing.
Apparently, such hydroponic growth has been too much of a good thing. According to Hezekiah Allen, executive director of the California Growers’ Assn, who says the Golden State is suffering from a cannabis surplus that will naturally bud into illegal activity.
Some marijuana growers will stay in the black market and continue to illegally send cannabis to other states, which is also not allowed under federal law, he said according to a new report by Los Angeles Times.
“We are producing too much,” he continued, even pointing out how those legally licensed “are going to have to scale back. We are on a painful downsizing curve.”
