Michael Olson Food Chain Radio – California Cannabis Green Gold Rush

Michael Olson Food Chain Radio: California Cannabis Green Gold Rush Part IV – Who Will Prosper in the Cannabis Industry?

California’s forthcoming legalization of cannabis is projected to generate so much cash State Treasurer John Chiang is asking for a fleet of armored cars to pick it up and take it to Sacramento. And so we ask…

What will be the consequences of California’s Green-Gold Rush?

Will California’s illicit cannabis economy thrive as a legal cannabis economy? Illicit cannabis farming has, for generations of Californians, been located in areas of tall trees and shrubs, like the Emerald Triangle of Northern California. Will the communities that survived on illicit cannabis survive and prosper on legal cannabis?

What will happen to the law-enforcement community? For decades, the principal function of cannabis law enforcement has been to maintain the high price of cannabis by periodically prosecuting select illicit farms. And those high prices gave illicit farmers plenty of incentive to farm. What will law enforcement’s function be in the economy of legal cannabis?

And what will happen when California governments become addicted to all that green-gold? Will governments become “pushers” of cannabis consumption?

In Part IV of our California Green-Gold Rush series, we speculate as to what the consequences will be when cannabis becomes legal–sort of– in California.
