That's what happens when you put the liquor distributors in charge of pot. What do they care, they bought a government sponsored monopoly with their campaign contributions. Monopolies ain't got time for that customer service BS.

Or perhaps this is what happens when you answer the pent up demand.  Specialized stores are a joke, put it with the booze and be done with it.

Now on the other hand cleaning up the booze distribution laws should be part of it.

In one of the states I visit, the corrupting influence of regulating the markets is playing out very badly for everyone but the monopoly holders. The existing 2  licensed distributors have spent more than it cost to build their businesses on lobbyists in the last term. Successfully shutting down the granting of new distributorships.  They went so far as to provide very high paying jobs for already retired ex- senators so that they could send clear signals to the current legislators where their loyalties should lie when they block the existing regulation plan they already approved last year.

This is about to cause a real problem for those in state government tasked with implementing the law. They tax by granting yearly license fees to producers and distributors. And have gained 10s of millions for the state budget this year in granting production licenses.  And now that all just started producing there will be a glut in 3 months and no where to sell it as the only distributors may be  maxed. You can imagine the contrived pressure that will happen to the markets, price and  investments of the producers. Almost all of whom are small scale local businesses who invested less than 3 m to get operational.

The law requires the state to arrive at harvest to grind into dust anything not under contract to be sold. It can not be stored to be sold later.  In a fitting, maybe kafkaesque, turn of events, one of the distributor's partners has applied for and received the state license to be the certified wood chipper with the state contract.  Whom will be dragged cerimoniously to the grow with state bureaucrats in tow, to  grind up his very suppliers product that they choose not to buy. All the while charging a fee for this service to humanity. That is going to be some shit show this fall.

Ah, you've been visiting Massachusetts.  As you know familiarity breeds corruption, long term familiarity breeds monopolistic corruption.

Too bad it was discovered before they even had time to crank up the ad campaign.

A new study at the University of Bonn in Germany, in collaboration with a team from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, found that cannabis reverses aging in the elderly brain.

Administering a low-dose of cannabis to three different groups of mice (2-months old, 12-months old, and 18-months old), over the course of 1 month, the researchers found that the elderly mice (i.e. the 18-month group) were able to perform at the same level as the control group of young mice (i.e. the 2-month group). The elderly mice, Forbes writes, “struggled with tasks as consistent with their brain ages at first, but saw a huge increase in performance with THC infusions that raised their skill level up to young-mouse (drug free) standards and continued for weeks afterward.”
