Reader: Medical marijuana dispensaries need to sell out of state to survive
A Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area report lists alleged instances when medical marijuana from Colorado was sold for non-medical purposes, often beyond Colorado's borders. Far from denying that such things are happening, a number of our commentators offered confirmation -- including this one.
Like I said before, I know of 3 dispensaries that ship over state lines to keep afloat. The market is over saturated and prices are super deflated rendering indoor growing operations unprofitable. I also know of about 15 people who have no medical conditions that warrent MMJ and just like to get high. I know about 80% of MMJ patients use their card as an insurance policy against the law. 60% of MMJ patients grow themselves to supply others without cards and others over state lines.
