A few months ago, I wrote about the California cannabis industry striking back at the politicians in Sacramento and forcing them to reform Proposition 64, our adult-use legalization framework.
Everyone in the state knows it’s broken, but no one seems to be able to fix it. Year after year efforts to reform Prop. 64 fail in Sacramento, even with one-party rule by the Democrats. The situation is so bad that California has now become the poster child for how not to legalize weed.
At that time, I reported that the industry had unity I hadn’t seen in years and it appeared the will was there to win so that craft cannabis can survive in the state, and corporate cannabis can be profitable. After years of trying to build bridges, I saw all these stakeholders finally working together on reform.
