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.
