By almost all indications, the introduction of the cannabis market in New York should be nearing completion.

New York State began issuing marijuana cultivation licenses to more than 200 farms last spring, and farmers have since planted seeds, maintained rows of plants all summer, and just finished harvesting in the past few weeks.

Now they have hundreds of millions of dollars worth of marijuana — ready to be sold in inpatients.

However, there is one problem: instead of being delivered to retail outlets, marijuana is just being stockpiled.

Although the “wild” gray market is already in full swing, not a single legal recreational inpatient facility has yet opened in New York, despite repeated assurances from the state regulator that cannabis shops will be permanent workplaces by the end of this year.

We remind you that in March 2021, lawmakers in New York reached an agreement on the legalization of the sale of marijuana for recreational purposes. When passed, the law would enable recreational sale of marijuana to adults over 21 years of age and would mandate a licensing process for the delivery of cannabis products to customers.

Accordingly, the citizens of New York could grow up to three mature and three immature plants for personal consumption. In addition, even then it was written that – although the law would enter into force immediately – the sale would be realized only in the next 18 to 24 months.

So farmers are still waiting, reports Bloomberg these days.

Zalihe koje imaju, a koje su procenjene na 136.000 kilograma, predstavljaju mnoštvo problema za uzgajivače, a jedan od ključnih je propadanje kanabisa, vremenom. 

Na osnovu prosečne procenjene veleprodajne vrednosti, od blizu 5.000 dolara po kilogramu, istraživačka firma “Cannabis Benchmarks” – koja prati veleprodajne cene marihuane širom zemlje – kaže da bi zalihe mogle vredeti čak 750 miliona dolara.

Ako farmeri uskoro ne prodaju svoje biljke prodavnicama, prihod od skoro milijarde dolara će na kraju početi da opada, piše dalje Blumberg. U međuvremenu, farmeri moraju da smisle način kako da očuvaju marihuanu svežom, na neodređeno vreme, dok ga istovremeno čuvaju od krađe ili potencijalne kontaminacije.
