USDA Orders Colorado to Revise Hemp Plan

As states continue to fall in line with the USDA’s plan to oversee hemp production across the country by next year’s planting season, several remain in the “draft” phase with their own programs. While the USDA is willing to extend federal licenses to individual farmers in states without their own programs (Mississippi), the goal is for states like Colorado to design their own plan through the department of agriculture (or a related agency).

You can now buy weed out of a vending machine at certain dispensaries in Colorado, America's oldest market for recreational cannabis.

U.S. Cannabis Price – Which Is The Most Expensive State?

Cannabis is the new must-have product in legal States, opening up an industry that didn’t exist before, and diverting money from the longstanding cannabis black market. But change doesn’t always come cheap, and depending on where you live, the taxes are steep, and the price of cannabis is skyrocketing.

About 10 years ago I used to pay about $50 for an 1/8 of good stuff in New York. Around that time, I could get that same 1/8 in Oregon for $10-15 less, highlighting one of the big price differences that has often existed for cannabis between the East and West coasts of the US, a standard that could be changed or erased by the inclusion of a legal cannabis market.

Hemp production slows due to oversaturation

Colorado’s hemp industry is undergoing a market correction, with decreased production following an oversupply in recent years, The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports.

“There’s hundreds of thousands if not millions of pounds of hemp flower that has not sold from last year. We created a huge, huge oversupply and you’ll have that in agriculture,” Wacey Clarke, the owner of Colorado Hemp Solutions, told the paper. “We’ve seen that over and over again when you have new opportunities and all of a sudden leave it to the American farmer to really oversupply those new opportunities.”

Since legalization took effect in 2012, the report notes “it is apparent that progress has occurred quicker in the marijuana industry than in science.”
