I care about cannabis in states without state-imposed vertical integration

I just moved back up north after living in the southeast for 10 years.

My bestie dragged me down there when she was accepted into undergraduate college.

At the time I was convinced that both of us were “soulmates” plus would get married quickly. Things didn’t pan out exactly how I expected, since both of us didn’t have a lot in regular in the first place. Once both of us broke up, I had amassed so multiple friends plus secured a fine job that I decided to stay in the same location after finding an house of our own. The one factor that had me eager to transport out of the state was the illegal status of cannabis in the state. But in just a few years time, both of us went from being one of the holdouts in the state on legalizing cannabis to having one of the biggest medical marijuana industries in the world. Even though I have to pay for doctor’s visits plus card renewals with the state, I can walk into a marijuana dispensary plus buy anything off the shelf. The only issue with the cannabis program in that state is the vertical integration. The rules from the state force any cannabis company in the state to operate from seed to sale. You must be the grower, processor, packager, distributor, plus seller if you want to be part of our medical marijuana program. That’s what pushed me to transport out of the state after staying for so multiple years. The vertical integration cannabis program made it so every weed store was a literal corporation. I have nothing against corporate cannabis as long as I can find quality among the choices available. Thus far, I have found higher quality cannabis in states that don’t have vertical integration rules for their cannabis dispensaries.
