10月17日是加拿大实施休闲大麻合法化一周年
October 17 is the first anniversary of the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada

一年来 加拿大的大麻消费
Over the past year, there have been some

出现了一些人们没有预料到的变化
unforeseen changes in cannabis consumption in Canada

例如在合法化之前
For example, before legalization

抽大麻的最大群体是20几岁的年轻人
the largest group of cannabis was young people in their twenties

而现在是中年妇女
but now they are middle-aged women

而有些原来期待的变化却没有出现
Some of the changes that were originally expected did not appear.

例如政府在一年前将休闲大麻合法化时
For example, when the government legalized casual marijuana a year ago

理由之一是可以取代黑市交易
one of the reasons was to replace the black market transaction

不让大麻市场的利润被犯罪团伙拿走
and prevent the profits of the cannabis market from being taken away by criminal gangs

但是现在一年过去了
But now that one year has passed

政府自己的数据显示
the government’s own data shows that

大麻黑市并没有消失
the black market for marijuana has not disappeared

而是仍然很活跃
in fact, it is still very active.

虽然由于其非法性质
Although it is difficult to assess the current size

很难评估目前大麻黑市的规模和价值
and value of the cannabis black market because of its illegal nature

但加拿大统计局的一项对大麻使用者所做的调查显示
a survey of cannabis users by Statistics Canada shows that

只有29%的大麻使用者说
only 29% of cannabis users say that

他们所消费的大麻制品全部来自合法渠道
they consume all the cannabis products from legal sources.

统计局的另一项调查了
Another survey by the Bureau of Statistics examined

今年4月至6月之间有多少人
how many people had obtained cannabis products

曾通过非法途径得到大麻产品
through illegal means between April and June this year

得出的结论是
The conclusion is that

每十个大麻消费者中
four out of every ten cannabis consumers

仍有四个告诉统计局
tell the Bureau that they have bought marijuana

他们或多或少从黑市买过大麻
more or less from the black market

对此 加拿大警察局长协会也承认
In response, the Canadian Police Chiefs Association also acknowledged that

在加拿大引入合法的休闲大麻市场一年之时
the cannabis black market remained “vibrant” when Canada introduced

大麻黑市仍然“充满活力”
the legal leisure cannabis market for a year.
政府在取缔大麻黑市方面还没有重大成效
The government has yet to achieve significant results in banning the cannabis black market.

经济学教授迈克尔·阿姆斯特朗(Michael Armstrong)
Economics professor Michael Armstrong

一直在跟踪研究大麻市场问题
has been tracking the issue of the cannabis market.

他认为有三个因素
He believes that there are three factors

使大麻黑市仍然兴旺
that make the black market for cannabis still prosperous

这三个因素分别是成本
These three factors are cost

销售网点和货源
sales outlets and sources of supply

加拿大统计局评估报告说
The Statistics Canada assessment report said that

2019年第二季度
in the second quarter of 2019

加拿大人在非法大麻上花费了9.18亿加元
Canadians spent $918 million on illegal cannabis

相比之下 同期合法休闲大麻
In comparison, legal leisure cannabis sales

销售额为4.43亿元
for the same period were 443 million dollars

医用大麻产品为1.5亿元
and medical cannabis products were 150 million dollars

再从价格上看 今年第三季度时
In terms of price, in the third quarter of this year

从政府认可的零售商购买
the price per gram of cannabis purchased

每克大麻的价格为10.23加元
from government-approved retailers was $10.23

而黑市大麻的价格约为5.59加元
The price of black market marijuana is about 5.59 Canadian dollars.

对于这些数字
For these figures

新不伦瑞克省的大麻种植协会主席
Rodney Wilson, president of the

罗德尼·威尔逊(Rodney Wilson)
Cannabis Plantation Association of New Brunswick

一点也不觉得惊奇
is not surprised at all.

他认为这有两方面的原因
He believes that there are two reasons for this

他表示大麻黑市已经发展了几十年
He said that the black market for marijuana has been developed for decades

形成了一个多层次的分销网络和消费群体
forming a multi-level distribution network and consumer groups

有强大的客户关系网
with a strong customer relationship network

而且由于多为家庭种植
And because it is mostly for home planting

成本远远低于按政府规定
the cost is far lower than the nursery that

种植大麻的苗圃
grows cannabis according to government regulations.
