The Oregon Liquor Control Commission at the end of January issued a study claiming there’s enough marijuana to supply the state’s recreational market for 6.5 years.
The “2019 Recreational Marijuana Supply and Demand Legislative Report” stated the finding was in theory and stems from over-production.
Brandon Krenzler and Erin Purchase argued just how theoretical the finding is. They own and operate Kind Leaf, one of the three retail marijuana stores in Pendleton, and employ about 30 people. They said the market is far from collapsing, and much of the surplus is stuff that will not sell.
