Challenges faced by the cannabis industry

Flawed supply chains

Under-regulated, relatively young and facing competition from illegal enterprises, cannabis businesses struggle to establish verifiable supply chains and to promptly and accurately detect fraud and counterfeiting.

Heavy taxes

Immense taxation when purchasing marijuana products remains a part of the legalization deal. Washington state currently collects 37% on cannabis sales; ITEP even recommends governments shift to per-weight taxation to combat falling tax revenues.

Illegal practices

Despite partial or full legalization in some jurisdictions, MarketInsider reports that its production and distribution are still mostly unregulated, with roughly 90% of all marijuana sales made illegally.

Restricted payments
