It Would Take Oregonians Seven Years to Smoke All the Weed They Harvested This Year

In 2017, Oregon grew far more cannabis than the state smokes. In 2018, it grew even more.


By Katie Shepherd |
Published January 2 at 5:30 AM Updated January 2 at 5:30 AM





As 2019 dawns, Oregon is sitting on 1.3 million pounds of unsold cannabis flower.


While that total includes some just-harvested flower that hasn’t dried yet, it’s still absurdly more weed than the 166,000 pounds of legal cannabis Oregon consumers smoked last year. (The Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which tracks legal cannabis grown and sold in the state, could not say how much its current inventory included still-wet bud.)




Not all of the 1.3 million pounds is destined to end up in pipes, joints and bongs in 2019. Some will be sold to extractors who will create dabs and edibles that are more shelf-stable and can be sold later when the state’s inventory is lower.




But the excessive inventory will still drive prices down, and put growers out of business.




“The impact of being over-inventoried is that suppliers into the system must lower prices in order to sell into the market,” says Beau Whitney, an economist who studies the cannabis industry for New Frontier Data. “There is no real short-term solution to this. So this is going to be the environment for quite some time.”




1.3 million pounds is a lot of pot. How much?
If all or most of the 1.3 million pounds consisted of dry flower ready to smoke:
It would fill 589,670,081 1-gram pre-rolls.
It would weigh the same as 359 2019 Subaru Outbacks.
It would take Oregon smokers 7.8 years to smoke it all, if Oregonians continued to purchase legal weed at the same rate they did in 2018.

California produces at least 10x what people smoke there. Probably more like 20x. And they have since about 1985. 7x in Oregon is up from the previous 3x estimated made last year. So production is increasing. As for the black market being the result of legal weed here though? Ba ha ha! Like the black market did not exist before?

The global race to the bottom is on now. Colombia, South Africa, Thailand, Canada, Australia, Israel and others are all ramping up for growing and exporting weed. I can see $100 pounds in the future as commodity prices for global weed tank. I mean, this stuff actually does grow on trees, right? As a state, we should try to export medical weed to places like South Korea, as they are not going to grow it there at all. It will all be imported.

I love how the state is still issuing hundreds of new licenses to grow there too, couple that with all the acres of legal high CBD hemp that's happening and weed should be free there soon!

If only the real estate market would crash as fast I could afford to relocate...

They’ve actually halted issuing new licenses since July and I heard it’ll be until at least this summer before they start processing new applications

Right, but if its not just grow licenses, but its also for processors, wholesalers and retailers they've halted too then they're doing nothing to increase demand. Instead they're perversely shrinking demand at the same time they have a product oversupply. If they would continue processing the non-producer licenses then wholesale and retail prices would have to rise some to pay for all of the new labor and material investment the new non-producer licensees would be paying for.

Semi out of Portland stopped in Idaho's largest marijuana bust ever

The semi-truck was allegedly filled with nearly 7,000 pounds of marijuana plants.



BOISE, Idaho — A truck out of Portland was stopped by troopers in Idaho in the biggest marijuana bust in the state's history, police said.
The semi-truck, which was stopped between Boise and Mountain Home by Idaho State Police troopers, was allegedly filled with nearly 7,000 pounds of marijuana plants.
Idaho State Police officials said it was the largest marijuana bust in the agency's known history.


The driver, 36-year-old Denis V. Palamarchuk, of Portland, was arrested and charged with felony marijuana trafficking.



The truck was stopped on January 24 as as part of a routine, random commercial vehicle safety inspection, according to ISP spokesman Tim Marsano.
The driver's bill of lading, a document that details the cargo in the shipment, said the trailer was carrying 31 bags of hemp.
Marsano says the trooper detected a strong odor of marijuana during the inspection, and so opened one of the bags and performed a field test which showed the plant to be marijuana.
The plants have been sent to an independent lab for further testing.

Idaho State police make 3.5-ton pot bust

BOISE — Idaho State Police officials say troopers made the biggest marijuana bust in the agency’s known history after a semi-truck allegedly filled with nearly 7,000 pounds of marijuana plants was stopped between Boise and Mountain Home.
ISP spokesman Tim Marsano said Tuesday the truck from Portland was stopped on Jan. 24 as part of a routine, random commercial vehicle safety inspection. The driver’s bill of lading — a document that details the cargo in the shipment — said the trailer was carrying 31 bags of hemp.
Hemp and marijuana plants look and smell very similar to one another, but hemp plants typically contain less than 0.3 percent of THC — the psychoactive chemical in marijuana — while marijuana plants generally contain anywhere from 15 to 40 percent THC. The plants also have different uses: Hemp can be used to produce a variety of products including food, industrial oil, paper, flour and clothing. Marijuana plants are often grown for their THC content, and are legal in Oregon, Washington and several other states but illegal in Idaho.
The trooper detected a strong odor of marijuana during the inspection, and so opened one of the bags and performed a field test, Marsano said. The field test showed the plant to be a marijuana plant, and a subsequent team of K9 drug-detection dogs that arrived also indicated that marijuana was present, he said.


Marsano could not say how low of a THC content will generate a positive result by the field tests or whether the dogs were trained to differentiate between marijuana or hemp, however. Still, he said transporting anything containing THC is a chargeable offense in Idaho.
"Between the field test and the K9 indication, Idaho State Police feel strongly that the load was actually marijuana and not hemp," Marsano said. "However, we have sent a sample of the load to an independent laboratory for further analysis."
The driver, 36-year-old Dennis V. Palamarchuk of Portland, has been charged with felony drug trafficking, Marsano said. It was not immediately known if he has obtained an attorney.
"This is the largest seizure of marijuana by the Idaho State Police in anyone's memory," Marsano said.
In total, the plants seized from the truck weighed 6,701 pounds, he said. If the plants do test positive as marijuana, the seizure will dwarf totals seized by the ISP for each of the past five years. For instance, in 2014, the state police seized roughly 319 pounds of marijuana. Total seizures remained below 1,000 pounds for the next two years, reaching a total of 2,131 pounds in 2018, Marsano said.
Marsano said he did not know when the independent lab would complete testing on the plants.

And if it turns out to be 0.2% THC? And what are they testing? The whole plant by volume, or the tippy tops? Seems a good lawyer is needed. It could all be sensationalized news flap and police reports. No results from the lab yet. But why wait? They should just spark one up and see if they get high. I have 0.2% THC weed that smells like the best and highest potency OG Kush. But no high to it at all. Seems odd that they report it as Cannabis "plants" and not marijuana in the bust. As such, it is likely hemp. Lots and lots of hemp being grown in Oregon. Also they state that it is "Cannabis" and not hemp. But... hemp is Cannabis. Stupid is as stupid does.

Trump and the feds made hemp legal last year. My lawyer is looking into the fact that Cannabis seeds have little if any THC in them, and thus seeds should be considered as legal hemp now. Untested in the courts, yes. But by federal law, legal.

Snow may be on the way to Oregon in the early part of next week. Being sensationalized on the news here already. OMG! Snow! When I was a kid growing up here, it snowed a lot more than it does here now.
