When Colorado’s so-called 70/30 rule expired in October 2014, it meant a lower cost of entry for recreational marijuana business owners. Nearly six months later, the residual effects are apparent -- most notably the declining value placed on medical dispensaries.

This meant business owners had to either have cultivation expertise or the financial backing to pay for it. That entry barrier lifted with the expiration of 70/30, which opened the door to low-grade, wholesale purchases. No longer did shops have to pay for overhead costs associated with cultivation facilities. They could simply find the cheapest product on the market -- regardless of mildew, bugs or quality -- and move it to places where customers will pay top dollar.
