Legal marijuana in California is upon us, and it’s an absolute mess.
But not for commercial growers. They’re the ones with capital enough to deal with the stiflingly expensive state hoops and regulations. They’re set to cash in—and they’ll do so at the expense of small growers. Why? Because that’s the way California wanted it. Prop. 64 was a means to an end; it was a necessary legal hurdle clearer for big cannabis bucks.
Unlike the pro-commercial cannabis lawmakers in Sacramento who see small growers as insignificant collateral damage, we’ve got nothing against those who had hoped to get in on the Green Rush. It’s nothing personal. We simply do not want commercial cannabis activity and all that implies in our county.
