“Two or three years ago, a kilogram [2.2 pounds] of marijuana was worth $60 to $90,” a Mexican marijuana grower told NPR news in December 2014. “But now they’re paying us $30 to $40 a kilo. It’s a big difference. If the U.S. continues to legalize pot, they’ll run us into the ground.”
In 2004, SB 420 expanded medical marijuana defenses beyond patients and caregivers to groups of them, paving the way for storefront dispensaries, as shown.

In 2010, Oakland businessman Rich Lee attempted to legalize cannabis with Prop 19. It was defeated 46-54 by police and far-left pot groups who claimed Prop 19 would lead to “Big Marijuana”. Police and street dealers celebrated the defeat.

Medical pot seemed legal at the beginning of President Obama’s tenure, but by 2010 he had unleashed a crackdown far greater than under George W. Bush.

No one could understand that Obama had stabbed us all in the back like that. Was not much fanfare when the federal pressure finally let up. All the dispensaries who got busted, martyrs for the cause. Mostly it was just shakedowns for a cut of the money being made.
