Marijuana Legal, But Illegal Sales Continue In Colorado
Black market has more risk, but lower costs and longstanding ties with consumers
“[Legalization] has done nothing more than enhance the opportunity for the black market,” said Lt. Mark Comte of the Colorado Springs police vice and narcotics unit, (h/t Cheryl Chumley at The Washington Times). “If you can get it tax-free on the corner, you’re going to get it on the corner.”
Colorado Amendment 64, which legalized recreational marijuana use in Colorado, was signed into law last year, but legitimate businesses still only had about six months to set up shop. Since importing from another state would be a Federal crime, the amendment had provisions for licensing suppliers, testing facilities, and anything else needed for a self-contained industry.
