Thank god some one is thinking of the cannabis oligopoly in this state.


The amendment they removed should tell you a lot.

>The version from Assembly member Annette Quijano (D) was previously amended in committee in that body, with members agreeing to remove an earlier provision that would’ve made it so only cannabis licensees with gross receipts less than $15 million would be eligible for state tax deductions.

This isn't about helping small cannabis business (have any of them even opened?) It's a way to give away the large companies that are government was kind enough to serve up to them on a silver platter. Every time I see news about the state of the industry in this state, I regret just a little more voting for legalization.

There's only 30 dispensaries, medical and recreational, in the state. Over 1,500 liquor stores and over 7,000 bars/restaurants. If there were only 30 places in the state to buy alcohol there would be a civil unrest and the hospitals would be full of alcoholics going through withdrawal.
