You really did a number on that headline by pounding on your keyboard, subby.

Ounces and grams: The measurements used to sell marijuana.

Because nobody had ever heard of those crazy measurement units before marijuana legalization.

/drugs have made me a wiz at some imperial/metric conversions.

The free mixing of imperial and metric in the drug world is weird. Some might call it madness. Reefer madness.

I agree. They should stick with a single standard. I want to see news headlines about the cops seizing several hogsheads of marijuana and a few stone of cocaine.

"Tincture"? "Topical"?  These are words we now need to know because of recreational marijuana and were unheard of before?

Make "lids" a thing again.

I snorted a lot of cocaine back in the day and I'm still not sure what a eightball is. Eighth of an ounce?

Eightball = 1/8th of an ounce = ~3.5 grams = 7.4 stripper-hours

Legalization has bipartisan support. It would be any easy win for them if they weren't a bunch of 70+ white men still mad about the 1960s.

Because there are more Republicans involved in the industry than most folks realize. It's not a blue v red issue.  It's a green issue. As in money.

They tried that with gay marriage and it got legalized everywhere. It's unlikely, but distinctly possible that the conservatives on the court could overturn Wickard v. Filburn (a truly horrible SCOTUS decision).  Remember, it was the liberals (including the notorious RBG) who were the majority in Gonzales v. Raich.  But, who am I kidding?  Changing those two terrible decisions is a pipe dream.  More likely, I think, is that the FDA could be compelled to reschedule Marijuana.  Marinol is already on Schedule 3.

Ugh. Weed's legal here and they sell it in my local booze store, but for some reason, they moved all the old coot employees to man that side of the store. So now I'm buying dope from someone's grandparents, which is awkward. But then they decided to rename all the shiat on top of it. So I'm not buying bud, I'm buying 'dried flower'. They have 'Enhance', and 'Relax', 'Unwind', 'Center', but they don't have Indica or Sativa or hybrids. I asked if they had any hash, and they told me that they don't have 'concentrates' yet. Although they do have CBD oils. You can buy up to an ounce of 'dried flowers', but only in 1g, 3.5g, 7g, 14g, or 28g packages. So if you want say 5g, you need to buy 5 individual grams. Oh, and it's all packaged up, so you can't see or smell what you're buying until you leave the store (you can't open it in the store). Still, it's a start.

It isn't that awful, really. It's kinda like going to your favorite skatepark one day to find that the place is full of old people who want to show you their new 'rolling planks' and discuss proper form on how to do 'rolling plank jumps'. It's like that 'Hello, fellow kids' meme except they want to discuss your marijuana needs. It's really incongruous.

One thing folks might have missed from the election is that Pete Sessions lost. The most vocal, and formerly most powerful, opponent of Cannabis reform in the US House is gone.

I love my dispensary because I'm an middle aged nerdy guy who gives off a cop vibe and I'd not be able to procure any weed on the street.  On the occasions I do buy actual plant material, I'd feel really dumb trying to use whatever the current "420 culture" slang terms are, like the meme you mentioned.
