I get it Om Buds Man?


Sooo... Sounds like they need to hire a demand planner and a supply planner and kick off a state wide S&OP process...

How would that not be a price fixing conspiracy?

how is demand and supply planning price fixing. what do you mean?

Retailers and growers getting together to decide and agree upon how much to grow and how much they'll buy?

Not exactly... this process is driven by demand. You have state employees (not affiliated with the growers) create a demand forecast for both medical and recreational purchasers. They then analyze the capacity at all growers to see if it will cover demand. Since the state decided to limit competition - they need to know if those suppliers can meet demand or not.

Growers should be doing this independently on their end, but the question is... is there a capacity issue here or, since the lead time to grow if fairly long, is it just a temporary shortage?

Once we have a good understanding of supply capacity and demand expectations on a monthly basis we can determine what issue to solve for. It may be bringing in more suppliers so they can meet demand or better planning industry wide.

At no point should the suppliers meet to discuss and there's no reason for that since this is essentially a state run industry

Oh I get you, that doesn't sound as nefarious as the definition I read.

Sounds like they should be doing this on their own.

Was checking inventory last night across CT, what I bought before is still sold out and can't afford the jump in prices after Rec opening up.

I'm about to spend 2hrs spewing pollution across CT for the privilege of giving MA my money, good job guys!

Right now, patients have no one on the inside looking out for their interests. That’s what led to this idea. Patients have been getting trampled for years. This is finally a step in the right direction. That’s what matters.

To my fellow patients: Contact your state representatives and tell them you're counting on their support for HB5539.

All this bs about “medical patients will get priority” but in reality it’s “make as much money as possible once we go rec and…oh wait…what does giving priority to medical even mean?”

Sorry but if you don’t have separate markets and instead just jam rec and med markets all together you cannot promise we will get priority on any products. Therefore you cannot promise patients their medication.

So, so disappointed in the CT roll out. Glad I moved to VT, but realizing my CT card has become more and more obsolete.
