It hasn't stopped small private sales, and it's not hard to get a card so you don't get popped for possession. You can have plants on your property within limits, and it's taken the wind out of the sails of a lot of larger operations that were not terrible friendly. The only problem I have with it is that some public areas reek of pot smoke now, but then again, the area is just a little wider nowadays. Not my thing, but if it keeps people happy, and our jails emptier for actual criminals, I'll accept that my nose can be offended a bit. And it's expanded the market for edibles, which helped my Aunt when she was ill, and she didn't smoke. All in all, it's something that we should have done two generations ago, and saved ourselves a lot of time and money.

Here in Ontario, a lot of producers are going out of business.  The sector grew too large too fast.  I assume that the same thing will happen on the retail side soon too.  There have been a ton of stores opening up seemingly everywhere.  It's just not sustainable.

My wife actually does work in the industry for the Ministry of Agriculture and called this happening before legalization hit in 2018.  So she's not surprised at all.

I live in Maine and it's not uncommon for the medical dispensaries I visit to be almost entirely clean out of product because of huge sales to Mass residents. Cannabis is so expensive there that it's more economical to make the drive up here to stock up.

I spoke with a guy a few weeks back who explained it. He comes up every 2 weeks, drops about $3 grand then brings it home and resells it to triple his cost. He was kind enough to let me buy first before he started filling up grocery bags.

I own a payroll/bookkeeping company and currently have 6 medical grow companies I manage in the southern Maine area. They have all told me the same thing.

Here all of our dispensaries have been bought out by large chains. Nothing is independently owned. It's all multi-state corporations. That's where this is headed relatively soon.

Legalization has been ok, decriminalization wasn't bad either though.  These faux-Apple-Store dispensaries are obnoxious and the prices are insane, notwithstanding the TWENTY PERCENT TAX.  Can't wait for NH to undercut MA on price and force some reality into the situation.  I want a dispensary that's like an old tobacconist's shop, not these sleek, brightly lit laboratories, where I can buy big bags of cheap shake without the boutique pricing.

Exactly, but that doesn't stop the idiots on the radio/news complaining about all the potshops going up, all the while they decry the fact that you can't by hard liquor in corner stores.

It's like any new thing, craze, fad, etc.  Remember all the cupcake places that were everywhere when cupcakes were the thing?  There's only one left in my area, it's almost as if stores that do well will stay, stores that don't will close.    Twas ever thus, twill ever be.  I think Covid screwed with the timelines.  Lots of people had CERB money etc., and nothing else to do, so might as well spark up.

How much are they charging in your various localities?  I can get 14-15gr for under $100CDN.  Of decent stuff not ditchweed.

It sucks to show up after they've been raided to find the selection is limited.

Actually, I think there is a dollar limit per store of around $3,000. The guy I spoke to said he was going to visit a few other stores and asked if there were any new retail shops near by.  Dear god... that guy must have had a car full of weed. No way in hell, he wasn't blazed out of it while driving.

They are starting to make inroads here. I think Maine dabbed with the idea of preventing out of state ownership but that's not constitutional.

Meanwhile it's doing a great job at driving the prices down. Some of the rules need to change though, the 10mg limit on edibles is downright stupid.

A good chunk of the price is the delivery fee since they are coming 40-ish miles away to my house. I am 100% sure I could get it cheaper elsewhere, but to me convenience is a top priority.

I live in NV and love the Weed stores. I remember the 90's when you'd have to page some sketchy dude and hope they return the phone call before your mom comes home. Then, you have to sit at their house and pretend you like them and they want you to smoke a bowl of the weed you just bought from them.  Now, I can be in and out in under 10 minutes. I'm mostly using gummies these days and buy whatever is on sale. $10 to $13 for 10 gummies. I usually only eat half. Disposable pens on sale are $15. $10 -$ 15 for a 5 gram joint. $49 for a quarter ounce. The tax is crazy, but it's till worth the convenience. I would have met a lot less sketchy characters had this been around when I was kid. Legal weed and YouTube guitar lessons and skateboard videos would have been amazing for me.

Yep. But then, shortly after, craft growers will show up, grow in popularity, then be bought by conglomerates so all the product gets homogenized to maximize profits.

Don't you have to drive through several states where weed is not legal? That seems like a good way to go to federal prison.

I'm a long time smoker but pretty new to dispensaries. Im in NY but started driving up to MA to get vape and edibles to add some variety to the flower i get down here. A quick look at their prices shows what I would buy at 55us per 1/8, so 220us for the 14 grams for a total of 264us including taxes.

Here in Quebec it's run by the provincial government. A subsidiary of the SAQ.

The Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) is a subsidiary of the Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ). It was created in June 2018, following passage of the Cannabis Regulation Act.

So they keep it running pretty well since they rely on tax revenues from it too.

Never seen any empty shelves, but I only frequent 2 different locations.

Between the dispensaries, the OTB/slot machine spots, and the vape shops, we can really see the bifurcation of America happening in front of our very eyes. The proles are given drugs, gambling, and vice, while the wealthy get healthcare, higher wages, and longevity.

Kind of sad, but people voted for this for themselves.

Yeah it's positive everywhere it's legal except of course they fark it up like they do in most greedy states. What is the tax 25% (state/local) on something you can produce at home or get from a "friend" tax free. Every time you do that you keep the black market alive. They would make more if it was a sub 10% and if you reduced the cost associated with payments, moving money and product around. Even CO seemed to do a better job at 15%. I'm thinking NH will do it right, like they did with alcohol (and make millions off of MA residents every year).

We still have a Puritan thing here in MA.  We tried to get an old mill building in my town renovated as a marijuana processing plant for pharma grade THC for cancer clinics back in 2018.  The boomers got the article moved to a special daytime town meeting where they filled the seats (empty of students and working people), and banned all recreational, growing, and processing pot businesses.
Of course now they drive blurry eyed at 5 mph around town between the golf courses and restaurants high AF 24/7 in their Range Rovers and Escalades.  Hypocrites.

The Lee Select Board has written Canna Provisions on Housatonic Street, stating that the municipality spent zero taxpayer dollars as the result of the pot shop being operational from July 2020 until this July.
This means Canna isn't obligated to pay its community impact fee of $1,080,000 for the 12-month period.

justanotherfarkinfarker: Yeah it's positive everywhere it's legal except of course they fark it up like they do in most greedy states. What is the tax 25% (state/local) on something you can produce at home or get from a "friend" tax free. Every time you do that you keep the black market alive. They would make more if it was a sub 10% and if you reduced the cost associated with payments, moving money and product around. Even CO seemed to do a better job at 15%. I'm thinking NH will do it right, like they did with alcohol (and make millions off of MA residents every year).


Funny how nobody biatches about the taxes here, we just buy the good quality product and get on with our lives.Every time you do that you keep the black market alive.Horseshiat.

My local hempary is doing amazing things with Delta 8 which is much better than the mids I used to smoke. They make the most wonderful edibles.  Now, I've quit smoking and don't have to hang out where I've had weapons pointed at me.
Not legal here yet, but I can work with this until then.

I'm all for it, except when it comes to making it a series of small businesses, primarily owned by African Americans in majority African American districts MA has failed to keep that promise.  Also, I want more enforcement in public spaces, cops will come to a playground if you report brown-bagging alkies there, but couldn't care less if some young'uns are toking up next to toddlers on a swing set.  That's just farking wrong.

DocUi: Serious question:  

How much are they charging in your various localities?  I can get 14-15gr for under $100CDN.  Of decent stuff not ditchweed.


I have a FL MMJ card and I only shop when there are sales. I pay an average of about $160-$200/oz. and that's 1/8th at a time, so potentially eight different flavors.

Sorry, I don't know how much that is in Maple Moose Money.

Medical card is disgustingly easy to get in MA, and comes with a lot of benefits:

1) medical dispensaries have to hold back inventory for medical cards, and not all medical stuff gets released for recreational use
2) No taxes on medical, which really helps when there is a 70% tax rate on vape carts because Baker went all "Someone think of the children" when the black market was lacing vapes with toxic stuff that shouldn't be inhaled, nevermind that it was never found in the legal stuff
3) During the pandemic recreational places shut down for several months and medical was the only option.

I think of my med card the same way I do my Costco membership

In Oregon I've been paying ~$200/ounce out the door for top shelf, with decent stuff selling for half that. I don't know what $30 gets you, but there are ounces for that price as well.

I dunno, maybe I should chase down a dude in a couple of trailer parks to get a better rate.  Not sure what's in those bags, but I'm sure they'd NEVER rip you off.
