Why does the legal cannabis industry need a black market?

In early June, inside the Empire Cannabis Club, a breeding shop Unlicensed shelves on Manhattan’s Eighth Avenue are filled with cannabis products from popular brands such as AbsoluteXtracts, Jeeter, Stiiizy, and Kiva. These products were produced legally in states such as California, Colorado, and Massachusetts. but without federal legalization, there is no legal way for these products to cross state lines.

Jonathan Elfand, the founder of Empire and cannabis products entrepreneur who spent 10 years in prison after being caught in 1998 for running one of the city’s largest cannabis farms in Brooklyn, says the products are legally produced and tested in labs elsewhere. When asked how they got to New York, a state that has legalized recreational marijuana but has yet to initiate state-approved sales, looks shy. “Hey, magic happens,” says Elfand in an interview at a bar near San Francisco airport last July.
