Oregon is producing three times more marijuana than it can consume

Oregon is producing three times more marijuana than it can consume with “formidable” amounts now ending up on the black market, officials have warned.

US Attorney Billy Williams told law enforcement representatives from across the US on Friday that the state, where recreational cannabis use is legal, had a serious overproduction problem.

Mr Williams said officials needed a “bottom-line answer” on how much excess marijuana was being produced and how much of it ends up on the black market.
