Since then, the state has licensed more growers, processors and retailers, increasing supply and reducing prices to an average of $15 a gram, said Randy Simmons, deputy director of the Washington State Liquor Control Board. Prices were as much as $25 a gram in July, including taxes.

Even after the decline, that’s still 50 percent more than the $10 a gram available on the black market, board officials said in an interview yesterday at Bloomberg’s offices in Seattle…

Seattle’s city attorney this week proposed closing illegal dispensaries and folding the medical market into the regulated system.

“It makes sense to fold it in,” Garza said, citing rampant abuses in which people cite “chronic pain” to qualify as marijuana patients.
