Marijuana is overgrowing in Oregon, to the point that it would take over six years to smoke or eat all that the state has.
Oregon wants to curb its production of marijuana and lawmakers are looking to give the state’s Liquor Control Commission more leeway to deny new pot-growing licenses based on supply and demand.
The bill has already passed the Senate and is now in the House’s hands.
“The harsh reality is we have too much product on the market,” explained Democratic Gov. Kate Brown. She wants to sign bill if it wins final passage as expected.
Oregon’s surplus has lead to retail prices falling from over $10 a gram in 2016 to less than $5 this past December.
