Interesting story and well worth reading
Canadian producers have destroyed millions of packaged cannabis products and hundreds of tons of unpackaged marijuana since adult use was legalized in late 2018, according to data acquired by MJBizDaily.
Those destroyed packages consisted of:
- 3,783,397 packages of dried cannabis.
- 1,500,396 packages of extracts.
- 714,491 packages of edibles.
- 943 packages of topicals.
Industry experts suggest the large-scale destruction reflects a variety of factors, ranging from low-quality product to a lack of retail outlets and stockpiling ahead of the 2020 launch of Cannabis 2.0 products such as edibles and concentrates.
