Why California Should Create A Cannabis Cartel

If California is going to transition successfully to full legalization of marijuana, the state is going to need its own cartel.

For the record, I am not smoking anything. And I’m not suggesting that California encourage a criminal syndicate like the Zetas. The California cartel would need to be a legal corporate oligopoly with the size and resources to control the distribution of cannabis so that our state can properly track, regulate, price and tax America’s largest marijuana market.
