    If your major newspaper carries a story on a marijuana shortage and they're worried that there won't be enough weed for the summer tourist season, you're a Californian....

    Marijuana shortage possible this summer in San Diego
    http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/...406-story.html

    San Diego’s legal pot stores could run short of recreational marijuana this summer when the seasonal rise in tourism sends the demand for cannabis soaring in a city that’s emerged as a mecca for the sale of weed.

    Analysts and retailers say the government hasn’t been approving cultivation licenses fast enough to meet anticipated demand. And the state is preparing to prevent the sale of cannabis that doesn’t meet quality control standards, which could tighten the supply.

    “There is a worry among our members that there could be a shortage over the summer,” said Dallin Young, executive director for the Association of Cannabis Professionals, a San Diego-based trade group.

    “With the increase in tourists, in addition to the already high demand among San Diegans, there just might not be enough adult-use cannabis to go around.”

    The caravan of pot carrying children didn't make it.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    I see what you did there!

    The article is blaming the lack of licenses to grow marijuana:

    San Diego currently is the only place in the county where customers can buy recreational marijuana. There are no major cultivators locally that serve that specific market. Most of the cannabis is brought in from other parts of the state.

    City officials intend to approve adult-use cultivation licenses. But Young says it’s unlikely that the first of those companies will be in full operation until next year. And San Diego won’t be getting help from Oceanside, which recently approved the cultivation of marijuana, but only for medicinal sales.

    ...San Diego officials have agreed to issue as many as 36 licenses to operate stores that sell recreational or medical marijuana, or both. So far, there are 13 stores. And the number might not grow quickly because of zoning problems in three of the city’s nine districts.
    But I'm guessing you might have a point.

    We don't have recreational marijuana in MI (yet), but we do have medicinal marijuana. The state makes it very difficult for dispensaries to obtain and keep their licenses, the Attorney General does not like the law, nor does the Detroit Police Chief. You have to take classes at a local community college to become a licensed grower (my lovable, but black sheep cousin is doing this now).
