Are people moving from the grey and black markets to the white market? Some are and many want to, but most can’t. The March 7th 2019 article by Jon Boivin in the Trail Times captures not only challenges of transitioning, but also how polarizing cannabis legalization is here in the Kootenay region. I think this type of argument is what partially contributed to the inequitable policy that accompanies Bill C-45.
While all of these gentlemen disclose truths, I certainly empathize with the small entrepreneur who wants to transition, but logistically the odds are stacked against them, and they feel like they can’t.
British Columbia is particularly unique because of a historic cannabis industry and policy should address that.
