“There is a stereotype that people come to our dispensary to get high,” says Kimberly Cargile, executive director of A Therapeutic Alternative. “Actually the number one question we get is ‘How do I use cannabis and not get high?’ That is the goal: helping our patients feel better and be able to have a better quality of life. The stereotypes are definitely not true in our case.”

California GroundBreakers Podcast: Policy and a Pint: Can We Fix California’s Crazy Cannabis Market?

On the surface, the legal cannabis business looks like the greatest thing since sliced bread to hit California’s tax coffers. Sorry to harsh your buzz, but no. California’s cannabis industry is an absolute mess.
In May, the Governor’s office released state budget documents showing that it has cut cannabis tax revenue projections of $1 billion by a whopping $223 million through 2020, so it’s only expecting $288 million this year, and $359 million in fiscal 2020.
How could the state miscalculate its cannabis business so badly? A few reasons given are: 1) a blanket of regulatory red tape; 2) taxes, taxes and more taxes; 3) anti-cannabis city councils and NIMBY objections; and 4) the black market’s not going anywhere.
So where do we go from here? What can be done to bring a new high to the cannabis industry and get it back on the track it was projected to run?
Listen to our conversation with some pros about how to make sure California’s legal cannabis market doesn’t go up in smoke.
