I can kind of understand the entitlement that the law gave them... they came up with the financing to build when local banks would not consider the loan... and made an ungodly investment in the medical business... way before JB was elected and the legislature started work on the program.

Things will get better over time. Its nice its legal but i look forward to a year or two from now when we can go to the nearest dispensary and get pretty much whatever we want with no lines.

Id like to see cheap CBD, I use that stuff too and even thats spendy when one needs large amounts.
Give it time and that will surely happen. I don’t think they had the right supply for the demand in Illinois.

Question for those who have visited any Illinois dispensary, are customers allowed to see and smell the products prior to purchase?.
Asking b/c med card holders were not, at least up until a few weeks ago.
TY in advance for any reply!.

No... all product is factory sealed & child resistant... intended to stay that way until you get to your home...

Dispensary 33 (IIRC) had a "bulk fiction" deal a couple of times last year... I dont know how that worked... Im not registered there.

You just have to go by description... sativa vs indica... descriptions from other med users... thc %... always a crapshoot, sometimes you open the package... it looks short, but always weighs.

Still no flower really in Illinois where I am. The local dispensary has an online menu, and flower showed up for about a day. Just one type, and sold by the gram for $20 before tax. It was sold out in a very short amount of time. I saw it on the menu, and was about to drive over when it disappeared as sold out. Sucks. Plenty of edibles. But very short on everything else.

I've been to both of our local dispensaries, and customers are shown stock on an ipad at one, on a printed menu on another. No seeing or smelling the product. You pick it out, they put it in a bag and you walk out. Cash only, of course.

You are seeing the same thing that I am... my shop uses a tablet to check stock, writes a paper slip,,, passes it into the lockup... my order comes out of lockup... and I am called to the cashier... debit card use was discontinued on Jan 1.

Rec hours are Thur - Sun... shorter hours than med...

They actually had 1/8 of one strain available for a few hours for rec purchase... only one flower product for a total of 3 items.

I still get bad vibes from the rec people in line when I cut with my card... they were outside in the wind/rain for some amount of time before they got inside the bldg for more of a wait...

It's not dry on the street though,

I'm going to My doctor Tuesday and going to ask him for a medical card. I've got the form printed out and everything. Anyone else here have an Illinois medical card? Curious to see how this goes.

Ya we shall see, I'm friends with someone that work in his office and she told me that he's given them out but she doesn't know what his "requirements" are... So I guess we shall see, if he denies it I'm going to tell him hes fired and find another doctor.
