Buckley sees China as one of the main supply problems, because so much marijuana equipment is sourced from there. In China, he says, some of the major factories are currently shut down twice a week due to a lack of electricity amid surging demand for products, as pandemic restrictions ease, adding stress to an already chronic power-supply shortage.
