Dime-bags on the street are one thing. But the real question is what happens to the high-end delivery services?

wyltoknow: Another dealer was a severe dumbass who invited "clients" TO HIS HOUSE and showed them the safe and everything.


I visited the home of my guy the first time. Dude had gigantic plastic bins filled to the top with shiat and about a hundred sticks of incense burning continuously. Seemed like a "Carnegie Deli" waiting to happen but in 19 years he has never had a problem.

T.M.S.: Dime-bags on the street are one thing. But the real question is what happens to the high-end delivery services?


They also delivery a nice fresh pizza?

If it truly becomes legal like alcohol, delivery service is possible, you will just have to show your ID at the door. (Depending on your state laws.)

So yes, you could in 10 years get a nice garlic, pesto, & chicken pizza along with your weed.

Not going to lie. I've never tried it. Never had friends into it.
Now I'm older, live in Denver (only for 6 months. ) but I don't have a clue how someone with no true friends that do it, would even get started in buying it. I wouldn't trust anyone. And I certainly wouldn't ask my coworkers if any of them had a trusted source.

I'm not believing that "street dealers" are going to do as well once actual legal stores open.

89 Stick-Up Kid: I won't get my card as long as my dealer keeps supplying the super duper automatic for me. Why would I need to pay $20/g for the same thing I'm already getting at $10/g?

The dispensaries are just for people who want to pay a premium for the edibles and oil.


Because you know you're not going to get ripped off at a dispensary, the dispensary keeps regular hours and doesn't go on "vacation," the dispensary has a lot of choices, I've never met a drug dealer that had more than 3 and most have 1, the dispensary also isn't in the crappiest part of town.

And $10/g sounds like Mexican ditch weed. Unless you're buying in larger ammounts.

I only have 2 connections at the moment, and the supply chain behind them is pretty long, so when I buy weed, I overpay. It sucks. I wish I had another source, but being a middle-aged father and working professional makes it tough to find someone. Nearly everyone I interact with knows me through my practice or because they're parents of my daughters' friends. I'm certainly not going to ask any of them if they know where I can buy weed.

I can't wait until the day my state legalizes it, and I can take a walk down to the local convenience store and buy myself some weed. I'd even pay a premium to be able to do that, but I'm pretty confident that in reality I'll probably pay a lot less than I do now.

It's gonna be difficult, as an adult, to score as trust is inherent to the deal. You have to trust them as much as they have to trust you. It's like moving to a new town and trying to find friends. Your co-workers, are your best chance 'cause they know you. Unless you work in the law enforcement field (and that isn't a block, either), one of your officemates imbibe. Just be ready to state that you're interested next time it comes up in conversation. Heads will be glad (and will live vicariously) to get your first high. Also, as said in "A Child's Garden of Grass" (required listening for older pot smokers), If you see a bunch of people standing around, stand next to them and look wistful.

Dirt weed is gone due to the drug law punishments being based upon weight. It simply isn't worth the risk anymore to get caught with a few pounds of commercial vs. a few grams of buds.

From the looks of this thread, I don't know. Users have been going on and on for years saying that if the government legalized marijuana they would give up the illegal stuff and go for the legal stuff. But in the end, that doesn't seem to be true.

Users will only give up the illegal stuff if the legal stuff is stronger and cheaper than the illegal stuff. All the black market needs to do in order to keep going is to making a cheaper, stronger product. And given that legal weed will have additional overhead costs as well as being taxed, I don't see it ever being cheaper than the illegal stuff.

People point to prohibition as proof that the black market for moonshine went away once legal alcohol came back. But in all honesty, moonshine went away because it was an awful product to begin with when compared with other liquors. Unlike weed, most people, not all, but most like to drink alcohol because of the taste rather than just having something that gives you a buzz. Pot doesn't have that trait. It smells bad and it doesn't exactly taste like bacon. There is no legal pot that tastes like an expensive, well crafted wine. So, if the cheap, illegal stuff gets you a better buzz than the weak, overpriced legal stuff, how many people are going to give up their dealers?

Sure, street dealers can enhance their product with any number of value-added supplemental ingredients:
Crack, crank, rat poison, sugar, or whatever floats their boat. With legal pot, all you get is the marijuana with natural THC and maybe a few garden-safe insecticides.
 
2012-12-13 07:06:37 PM  
The worst part about buying it from my dealer is the fact that I even have to deal with him at all. As an introverted person, I just wanna be in/out without any hassle or forced conversation. I just wanna get my weed, go home and toke up in private.

On top of that, I never really know if what I'm getting is healthy or not. Sometimes it smells like the guy stored it in his ass. I can't return it once I bought it either. When I ask for weed, I can't say no in case I don't like it, as he went to the trouble of hooking me up in the first place and I look like an asshole if I complain about the quality.

fark all that annoying BS.

Give me a well regulated market to buy from and I will gladly pay for the convenience of it all.

I see the laws becoming more relax over time. You start with the "OMG only state regulated dispensaries in certain designated zones can sell". Then a few years go by and the people go "okay this is stupid, people aren't breaking the law or destroying the neighborhood because of pot shops being in the area" and laws get relaxed. We just in the last few years in Colorado allowed alcohol sales on Sunday. If you can get the laws to the point where pot isn't the only thing a shop sells, their prices will drop (less risk, other items chipping away at overhead). I don't know about other states, but the pot referendum in Colorado included being allowed to grow a certain number of your own plants. That will also reduce prices/push for better product.

Combo pot and wine bar? Combo pot & spa? Combo pot & artisan bakery? Pot shop & pizzeria. Or the most likely scenario: the 7-11 just knocks down the wall between them and the dispensary.

Now if Colorado will just allow full strength wine & beer in grocery stores and allow a liquor store owner to own more than one location so the really good stores can branch out.

There's still a market for Mexican garbage, but today's consumer wants a quality product and will pay top dollar for it. Indoor growing, hydroponics and crossbreeding have completely changed the quality of the product.

I don't know where the hell you're buying from, but I've never got anything laced. Usually people smoking crap spiked with PCP or coke have a good idea what they're smoking and are either dipping their weed in it themselves or buying from dealers who specialize in that garbage.

If your dealer is cutting his weed with rat poison, they're not going to have many customers for long. And I can't see how sugar would even work, wouldn't it just collect in the bottom? As for the Coke/PCP.. why would they use that when they can sell it for much more by itself?

Yup. Dealers certainly wouldn't lace it with other psychoactive substances without informing the buyer. Why waste money lacing weed with crack when you can sell them separately and make more money? And dealers wouldn't put rat poison or sugar in weed. First of all, the buyer can see it and it's certainly not something they'd be happy about. Second, if the buyer did find out that the dealer laced his weed with poison, the dealer might find himself with an unanticipated .357 piercing on the face for doing something that provided him with no benefit at all.

I think gregscott may have watched a few too many DARE videos in school.

semiotix: FishyFred: Because they can't just buy huge machines to automate the process.

Well, good. I like the artisanal touches that go into illegal drugs. That little smiley-face stenciled on to each tab of ecstasy... the baroque charm of the bong you made out of your high school wood shop project... the little pinch of chili powder in your crystal meth. You'll miss these things when Nabisco™ takes over the industry and prices all the craft-drug makers out of business.


Not really. I did appreciate the designs on blotter acid, but they don't really mean anything. And when weed is legal nationwide I'm sure there will be big corporate players like Nabisco, but there will also be small producers that provide the "artisinal touches" that you say we will miss.

Look at alcohol. We can buy Budweiser or Natty Light, but microbrews are abundant. You can buy cheap wine too but you can also spend hundreds of dollars for a bottle of wine. Same thing with hard liquor. You can spend $8 and get a cheap 5th of rotgut vodak or you can shell out a bit more and buy a name brand or you can buy the gimmicky skull-head vodak.

The thing is while you can look at beer or liquor and can't really tell how good it is without trying it, you can look at (and smell) a bag of pot and have a pretty good idea of how good it is.

Look at medical marijuana - They aren't selling Mexican brickweed in those dispensaries. They're selling primo kind bud and they are charging a premium for it. It's actually somewhat ridiculous. You want some "legal" weed for your "medical" condition? Sorry, we don't carry anything that's less than $80 a quarter. What? You mean you were okay buying Mexican ditchweed for $20 a quarter before you got your medical card? Ha!

Given a choice, I wouldn't smoke Mexi-weed either, but it's like me and my friends used to say - "Well, it gets you high" which is about the worst review any batch of pot our dealers 25 years ago would get.

Once it's legal and there are competing brands and retailers nobody is going to want to be known as the "Well, it gets you high" producer of marijuana unless they're solely competing on price.

I remember a convo with a dealer once. He was talking about how he had just gotten robbed the night before. Guy held him up for all his cash and weed. He shrugged, meh, it's business. Eff that, you could have lost your life for a few hundred bucks. Another dealer was a severe dumbass who invited "clients" TO HIS HOUSE and showed them the safe and everything. Big surprise one day when he's calling up all his clients demanding to know which one broke into his room and took all his stuff. Come to think of it I don't know any dealers who had happy endings regarding that career choice.

In California, the stores and the street dealers sell the same weed. Medical stores buy weed and hash from good street suppliers all the time, they call them "vendors". All the weed stores I went to certainly werent growing all that weed on their own property, even if they did cultivate some on site.

You are waaay better off establishing a good street connection if you buy your pot in amounts more than a handful. Ounce prices are high in the shops, and low on the streets. I can go get a top shelf ounce of some really dank OG $225 on the streets, it would be $350 easy in the shops. Their quarter-pound tickets must be ridiculous.

Beyond that, you are waaay better off cultivating your own medicine. A clone is 15 bucks and produces at least 10x as much end product after a few months, often much more. I got an overgrown clone from the weed shop for $35 this Spring and convinced a buddy to grow it, he didnt do much more than put fertilizer at the bottom of the hole and water it every few days. We got over 3 ounces of some killer Sour Diesel, and only such a small amount because we harvested it a little early (bad neighborhood, many thieves). That's $750 for planting something and watering it twice a week.

olddinosaur: She is "hooked on the action," she doesn't care about the money. There are many forms of crime which produce a better income than marijuana, and carry a lesser penalty when (not if) you are caught, but they don't have the cachet of the weed dealer.


What kinds of crimes? I suppose maybe embezzling money or something. Robbing gas stations or mugging people sounds too difficult to me and probably has very little reward. Selling marijuana probably isn't a good way to make a living unless you're growing it yourself and moving pounds of the stuff to people you trust.

I think I'd hate being a dealer. People calling you up all the time and asking if you had any and then wanting to come over to your place. And then there's the whole problem of traffic coming in and out of your house. If I even had 3-4 people a day coming over and staying for about 5-10 minutes I'm sure one of my neighbors would take notice. I would feel obligated to smoke them out and convince them to stay for an hour or two even if I really didn't like them.

CSB - A guy I knew once worked for the police department doing data entry work. During the course of his duties he came across the name of another friend who was suspected by the cops of selling pot. In fact it was true that this other guy was selling pot. Nobody was sure how he got on the cops watch list but our best guess was the someone who supplied him or who he supplied to got busted. Or maybe he just had a lot of traffic coming in and out of his home. 

OTOH, only one of the pot dealers I've known has ever gotten busted (for pot) and he was growing and was proud to show off his plants. Well, wait - make that 2 pot dealers. The other guy used to drive a few pounds up to New England from Texas. He got busted twice - the first time he was speeding and had a roach in his ashtray (and 3 pounds in his trunk). The 2nd time he's sure he was set up (got pulled over for no apparent reason - also with a few pounds in his trunk).

They both were doing okay as pot dealers. The guy with the plants used to work shiatty jobs for head shops, bars and grow stores. The other guy didn't have any other job, but had a decent house in a middle class neighborhood. Nothing fancy and neither were exactly rich

All the pot dealers I've known who didn't get busted had real jobs and were much more careful. I wouldn't even call most of them dealers. They were more like people who liked to smoke pot and either supplemented their income by selling or just did favors for friends.

johne3819: If your dealer is cutting his weed with rat poison, they're not going to have many customers for long. And I can't see how sugar would even work, wouldn't it just collect in the bottom? As for the Coke/PCP.. why would they use that when they can sell it for much more by itself?


Some dealers are lacing their stuff with high fructose corn syrup. I hear it's irresistible--people will smoke it until they pass out--and it causes munchies 40 times worse than regular medicinal marijuana.

You're joking, right? That would render the product damn near unsmokable. Honey blunts are hard enough to deal with, but HCFS? Shenanigans.

A dispensary might have a couple dozen varieties of hash for sale. And all kinds of edibles and drinkables. Dealers in legal cannabis states will be out of business once the retail stores open, except for the ones that do it as a hobby.

Stratohead: thanks to Medical MJ growers/dispensaries in states other than where I live... the availability of amazingly powerful shiat has exploded its gotten to the point where it's harder to find "dirt weed" than high quality product... which is mostly cool... except that when your paying $80 an 8th weight...baking magic brownies suddenly becomes seriously cost prohibitive.


Wow your getting ripped off.

pedobearapproved: 89 Stick-Up Kid: I won't get my card as long as my dealer keeps supplying the super duper automatic for me. Why would I need to pay $20/g for the same thing I'm already getting at $10/g?

The dispensaries are just for people who want to pay a premium for the edibles and oil.

Because you know you're not going to get ripped off at a dispensary, the dispensary keeps regular hours and doesn't go on "vacation," the dispensary has a lot of choices, I've never met a drug dealer that had more than 3 and most have 1, the dispensary also isn't in the crappiest part of town.

And $10/g sounds like Mexican ditch weed. Unless you're buying in larger ammounts.


Indica. So good girls ask for it by name.

Plus, the dispensary gives free haircuts and massages.

Serious question here:

I've suffered from severe major depression for several years. It's so bad that I even had farking experimental brain surgery last year.

Several people have suggested that pot might provide temporary relief. I haven't found any relevant studies, and my squadron of trusted medical professionals have given me mixed opinions (ranging from extremely negative "it'll worsen your depression" to neutral-but-it's-illegal-so-don't.)

I live in severely conservative Georgia where it's still severely illegal, so that's a risk to consider, too.

Any thoughts about it, either way? Especially, any relevant experiences? 

/fwiw, a trusted close relative lives in Seattle, and has offered to help find a source.

mekki: Users will only give up the illegal stuff if the legal stuff is stronger and cheaper than the illegal stuff. All the black market needs to do in order to keep going is to making a cheaper, stronger product. And given that legal weed will have additional overhead costs as well as being taxed, I don't see it ever being cheaper than the illegal stuff.


It amazes me that people will say anything this stupid in a public forum.

Before you say this again, try to find a bootlegger who'll sell you some cheap moonshine.

Good Luck!

Self medication isn't usually a good option. Having depression and anxiety disorder I can tell you it helped me, but a habit has a way of becoming a problem over time if left unchecked. So its really an individual choice if you feel strong enough to keep yourself in check as you wont have medical assistance in doing so (if you have a history substance abuse in your family history its a bad idea). Each person is unique and it might not help you specifically the way you want. They do have strains specifically for depression, but going through a street dealer you wont have access to that like you would at a dispensary.

This is making me sick.

I lived where it was legal with a card and i had multiple sources. I moved and I do not know ANYONE out here and have relatively no social life, so human encounters are few and far between (I like the gym... Doubtful I would have any luck there).

I think I'm actually drooling. Gross.

Umm there's a lot of those. Were you being sarcastic?
