  1. Black market CBD is no different to allowing cheap imports [edited under our comment moderation policy] under the Special Access Scheme in Australia. This does nothing to help grow our fledgling local hemp industry 😢

  2. This is what 80 years of prohibition gets you. It has been ever thus. It’s not the fault of the ‘Black Market’… the black market is the fault of the anti-cannabis forces, particularly government. It’s so sad to know that the vulnerable people who need medicine are the victims here.
