CA still has issues with cannabis black market

Nov 5th, 2019 8:15AM

A cannabis industry expert quoted by the Associated Press said that wholesale costs are doubled for the retail marijuana market, so the state seizures would be worth $3 billion of illegally grown marijuana.

California's seizures are "equal to our entire regulated market, said Jerrod Kiloh, president of the United Cannabis Business Association.


Although cannabis has been legalized for use in California, there is still a large unlicensed black market," said Robert Paoletti, Coordinator Colonel, California National Guard Counterdrug Task Force. "Our participation works to prevent this illegal market in order to promote a fair market place for those growers, producers, and vendors who choose to operate within the system that the voters approved."
