Posted by on Jun 13, 2019 in Featured, Other Issues, War on Drugs | Comments

This unforeseen consequence of general legalization is indeed harming some Americans. For patients who need medical pot, quality declines, access declines, and prices rise. I do not see a really good solution, because all businesses – pricing and supply decisions –  are driven by the market.  If  YOU see a solution, let’s have it.  Excerpts from the Article: When states legalize pot for all adults, long-standing medical...
