Guest opinion: Why it’s time to let Oregon cannabis cross state lines

Adam Smith | May 2, 2018

It is time to allow the licensed transfer of cannabis between legal U.S. states. If Congress won’t move to protect such transfers immediately, then the states, in cooperation with their local U.S. attorneys, should move to allow them to happen anyway.

The legal cannabis industries on the West Coast are in various stages of crisis. Crushing oversupply in some states and shortages in others are driving more product and more consumers into the illicit market. In California, where licensing of growers is taking longer than expected, retailers see rising prices and worry whether they’ll have product on their shelves this summer. Meanwhile, in Oregon and Washington, oversupply has left hundreds of licensed producers on the brink of insolvency.
