>How did weed get so much better so quick?
The internet. It became much easier to learn how to run a hydroponic grow, buy the equipment and get quality seeds from the Dutch seedbanks. If your grow ran into problems, you could post photos of your sickly plants to the uk420 forums and get a fast and informed response. All of a sudden anyone could have a go at growing weed and stand a very good chance of success.
Homegrowers and small commercial growers proliferated wildly, undermining the market for imported hash and weed. The gangs who had imported cannabis either gave up and focused their efforts on class As, or started their own growing operations.
The crap Thai stick disappeared, but so did the good Lebanese hash, because the economies of scale of importing cannabis collapsed. Most of the resin products on the market today are domestically produced super-strength varieties - butane extracts, bubble hash etc.
