world’s first government-licensed recreational marijuana
stores will open in Colorado next Wednesday.
But January 1 is also the first day these businesses, which are
legally required to produce at least 70 percent of their inventory,
will be allowed to grow marijuana.
Which raises an obvious question: Where will the pot come from?
As Senior Editor Jacob Sullum explains in Forbes, the
answer suggests that cannabis consumers should be prepared for
shortages and price increases, at least until the first harvest of
newly legal recreational marijuana this spring.
