Even if you don't use cannabis, you should care about this.
The Greenout Movement is the result of licensed California cannabis companies and community members joining forces to stop the black market.
It’s a call for people to only shop at licensed cannabis retailers to fight unsafe, untested cannabis products that are being sold at illegal shops.
In 2018, California became the sixth state to legalize the sale of recreational cannabis. Under the law, licensed retailers should be flourishing, and the illegal shops should be shut down and penalized. A year-and-a-half later, that is not happening. Illegal sales make up 80% of the cannabis market, legal shops are suffering, and communities are being robbed of millions of tax dollars every month.
We believe all Californians should have access to safe, consistent cannabis products and the first step is for all of us to #ShopLegalShops.
