  1. When legal reefer is $350-$500 an OZ and black market reefer of the same strain is 40% cheaper and just as good, the free markets will adjust to it.. Simply make legal reefer cheaper and just as good and you will see that it’s not worth it to grow pot for the blk market.. SIMPLY Economics 101..
