The legalization of recreational marijuana has definitely impacted the cannabis black market. New Frontier Data published a slide that indicated that ilicit sales have dropped to 33% of the overall cannabis market in Colorado, with Oregon at 39%, Washington at 51% and California at 71%. As these markets mature and state and local regulations are implemented in California, these numbers will continue to drop. Most people would prefer to buy their cannabis from a legal, reliable source.
