I get a kick out of people saying, "It's for medical reasons".

 It's ok. It's now legal. You don't have to be ashamed to say, "I like to get stoned"

Evidently the same thing has happened in California as well because the legislature has overtaxed the legal stuff.  The black market for weed will likely continue for one more generation and then go away as the old timers die off and the newer generations will simply accept the commercial product and say oh well, not having known anything different their entire lives.  There will always be hobbyists who will grow their own the same as those who brew their own beer at home, but it will not impact the commercial market the way the present black market does.

Also, the farther we as a society move away from cash, that will kill the black market leaving it with only crypto currency available for transactions.
 
In some ways not surprising.  British Columbia is often referred to as "British California" and with some reason.   California has eased back on some taxes and other restrictions.

These local network/grey markets will likely survive intact for decades.   But yes, a few more years and the legal market will be so large, few will comment on the "black market".

Being ashamed has nothing to do with it. 

There are still legal considerations.  I have to be careful about what and how I say things in public, on the record such as here.  I have a state issued professional medical license.  My state is unique in that it is one of the few states where the legislature, not the voters, legalized medical mj.  As a cancer patient, I called my state board to find out how it would affect my license.  As the board is regulated by the same state legislature that legalized it, the board cannot conflict with state laws.  They told me that as long as I had a medical use license, that I would not be in conflict with the laws and rules they are governed by.  It would then come down to an employer based issue.  If however, use was detected without having a medical license, I could lose my professional license and my ability to work in my profession.  And I also have a commercial driver's license, a CDL.

In my state, license holders are then reported and registered in the national pharmacy board data base of people using controlled substances.  This data base is shared across at least 25 states based on my last inquiry several years ago.  I am not yet willing to take that step even though I would certainly qualify for a medical use license in my state.

Until it is legalized federally, one must act accordingly.  You only get one chance to test dirty on the record.  

For 55 years, I have never ever been ashamed, just very very careful.

Legalization pushed up price of pot by 17%, StatsCan says

My comment: 

British Columbia is a tobacco/alcohol province despite the impression the media and the in-your-face pot protesters might give.  Nevertheless, the black/grey market for cannabis is well established and as most of you on these fora can easily guess, it primarily consists of decentralized  production and distribution networks. 

Given the obstacles that BC social conservatives placed in the path of cannabis legalization, it is absolutely no surprise that the black market continues to flourish.

That may be the case for you, but here in the southeast US where it is still mostly illegal, the price has plummeted to less than half price and the quality has gone up as the supply of high grade legal is flooding the black market.   For the past 3 or 4 years it is has been happy days for the old wallet!

2020 candidate Andrew Yang promises to legalize marijuana and pardon all non-violent drug offenders on 4/20 if he's elected


Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang pledged to legalize marijuana at the federal level if elected president and pardon all those who've been incarcerated for non-violent, drug-related offenses.

"I would legalize marijuana and then I would pardon everyone who's in jail for a nonviolent drug-related offense," Yang said at the National Action Network conference in New York City on Wednesday. "I would pardon them on April 20, 2021 and I would high-five them on the way out of jail."

I was looking at the Gettin' your drink on thread and was thinking to myself.

Self:   You have lots of work (including some serious number crunching) to do but seeing how we are finally having pleasant warm, sunny weather (17C to 20C), and it is Sunday, wouldn't it be nice to take a small hit off the bubbler (home-grown Indica and Sativa mixed) and then putter around the garden?   Finish processing the latest batch of compost.
