The California drought is bad for suburban lawns. It's bad for big water customers here in the city. And it's bad for people just trying to unwind after a long day at work. That's right: California is experiencing a marijuana shortage.
The story says that's there really two culprits to us not getting our buzz on. The first is the drought, of course, which has hit agriculture—from tomatoes on up—hard. The other? The newly-legalized markets for weed in Washington and Colorado, which—though risky to transport to—command high prices. Put those two factors together, and the kush that does hit the California market is, according to one expert, "garbage."
Oh well. We'll always have Napa wine. Oh wait....
