As one of the states that legalized marijuana, Washington is facing a serious issue with the amount of weed being produce.
Just like Oregon, Washington's oversupply stems from the state's lax regulations. The pot state has issues nearly 1,500 licenses to grow and process cannabis. Growers are allowed to cultivate up to 90,000 square feet of land. Too much weed with few retailers buying the substance was caused the price of cannabis to drop. For example, an ounce of marijuana selling for as low as $40 in retail stores.
Crystal Oliver from Cannabis Farmers Council stated that one of her main concerns is that larger farms are buying up the grow licenses, rapidly expanding and chasing smaller farmers out of business.
