The problem with us as humans we don't know what power we hold over big companies. When people were crying about they couldn't get hold of ps5's I was saying boycott Sony and the scalpers, then the prices will drop all around, but like good little penises we are we get sucked into this rabbit hole
 
In Canada, legal weed costs more than illegal...just an fyi
Yeah I guess when it comes to legalization I just wanna make sure that people don’t continue to go to jail
And it seems unfair that the government would regulate and sell (at bullshit prices), but not allow people to grow their own

top shelf strains in LA at dispensaries are 75-85 an eighth. + 33% tax. no breakdown on qty. everything is by the gram all the way up.

black market delivery is 800-900 a half oz for the current hype.

theres half decent stuff for a $50 an eighth but its hit or miss. half the time it tastes like mildew or is so dry it turns to dust when u break it up.

you can get cheaper outdoor / light depending greenhouse / hydro. as cheap as $100 a zip. couldn't pay me to smoke it. I'd rather just smoke a cigarette.

all that said, the stuff I grow crushes any of that. buy some seeds and a light. grow your own!

Why don't you like hydro? I grow DWC and people love the one strain I get. Its prob in the 95 percentile.

sorry didn't mean to seem like I have something against hydro. I love outdoor and light dep that is done well too. in fact I prefer properly done outdoor to indoor if I can get it.

I just meant that the bottom of the barrel stuff is shitty outdoor and hydro. ppl are pumping out quantity over quality. trust me this stuff is schwag. half the time the buds were pulled early and the cure tastes like hay or is super harsh.

Jesus, thats crazy prices. Can't say its good at any price, but a ounce is about 200-300 at the shops around me in Denver, with lots of places doing 100 zips. It isnt good though, roughly what you describe as the 50 8th weed is about the best you will find.

I would expect something in the range of 600-800 in NYC for medium quality. It was several years ago but I recall BM weed getting into those price points for pretty decent stuff out there. I shit my pants the first time I saw weed at 800oz, it was amazingly good...but sheesh.

Recreational in Mass is $18gr, $55 1/8 and $110 1/4 and I've seen an oz for $380... but when you add the 20% tax your talking $456. I can only imagine what NY will charge for a cannabis tax since they drove most of businesses out of the cities and the millionaire/billionaire class they usually tax are on the way out too. I would bet NYC will probably be taxed even higher. Just look at how high the sales tax is.

You can always go to Washington DC where weed is legal but you can't sell.. however you can give it away. So most "dealers" deliver within the city limits and they collect a "consultation fee/donation". Usually $100 a 1/4 $320 an oz. of medical quality bud.. At least that has been my experience.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you're a card-holding med patient in Mass (and able to purchase from the medical stock, I understand this has been an issue at times) I don't think you pay all of the taxes an "Adult Use" customer does?
