Cornwall ON – In what many are considering a progressive move into the future the City of Oakland California has licensed four commercial Marijuana factories.
The cash-strapped city stands to benefit later if voters pass a November initiative to legalize recreational use of marijuana. In addition, Oakland’s four marijuana factories would pay an annual fee of $211,000, which would support a city staff to ensure they are operated safely and securely.
“This is about big money,” Gieringer told ABCNews.com. “These are, by far, the largest facilities ever proposed in the United States. With only four competitors, it’s going to be an oligopoly.”
That’s right. It’s now a ferocious market pitting small growers against Walmart type factories. The one in the linked news story even has a doctor’s office as you need to have a prescription to use “medical marijuana”.
How long will it take for BC to follow suit? It puts the Marc Emery extradition in a new light now doesn’t it as California gets the jump on the lucrative industry.
