Like it might be legal to possess it now, sure, so everyone's excited about that... but if you're selling shit that they want to tax, they do not fuck around. Everything gets taxed to hell and back. So if dealers on the street aren't paying taxes back, Uncle Sam is gonna be throwing them in the slammer even quicker than before.

To keep making money and because people want it for less than in the stores. In Illinois it's costing people $100 a gram after taxes. I asked my stoner friend what he pays and he said the same thing is $15 on the streets.

I'm against drug usage anyways, this is just something I was thinking about.

No overhead so they can undercut the market and still turn a profit

Are you also against alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine? Those are all more harmful than marijuana.

Also, its NOT $100/gram, someone is lying to you. I just read its $57 for an eighth, which is still expensive, but thats about 16/gram.

In Colorado I don't know a single person dealing or buying from a dealer. It is soooooo much easier and cheaper to just go to one of the thousands of weed shops and buy your own stuff.

The people who have to be worried are those who thought it would be easy to start a weed shop and have no idea how accounting works, a lot of local growers are getting destroyed in audits.

My only experiencing purchasing legal marijuana from a dispensary has been in California, where I purchased weed for significantly less than I would have paid on the east coast illegally. $100 is insanely high for a gram.

however I'd imagine that number will drop with time as production improves, I bet it's a supply & demand issue at this point. the positives to legal dispensaries simply blow purchasing from an illegal dealer out of the water, and it's not really like dealers make a ton of money from selling weed anyway (unless they are moving very serious weight). most people I knew just dealt so they could smoke for free or make a little side cash

"shatter" and "budder" are both refined from the buds and are much higher potency, both of which push their price above what you pay for flower or w/e

If thats real, Lmao @ anyone who ripped themselves off. There is a gas station here in Orlando that routinely has 87 at $4-5 per gallon. If some dumbasses want to shop there, thats on them, that doesnt mean its the norm. Price gouging like that will put you out business.

I just realized those werent bud prices. Nice try.

well, yeah, the reason I point it out is that there is apparently a specific excise tax on products with high THC content, so that is not indicative of either the market price of marijuana, nor the effective tax rate on marijuana

It actually is cheaper in Baltimore than D.C. Although technically Baltimore is decriminalized/medical, and D.C. you cant legally buy but people just do it anyway or buy something else and get it as a gift. Although swim has a dealer that knows growers and dated someone at a dispensary who has been doing it all their life, so that probably helps. The cost of getting a card should likely be factored in if its coming from a medical perspective, anyway.

Illinois prices are super high because demand >>>>> supply. Same thing happened in Washington when marijuana was legalized.

Prices will drop as more suppliers get licenses and start to ramp up production.

But yeah, those are all highly concentrated types of marijuana, so of course theyll be more expensive.

Man fuck Illinois. Those prices are insane, and then they slapped on $80 in taxes! Badass weed in Montana is literally 10$ a gram. Ive bought it many times, some you can get on sale and some is more expensive. Shatter and dab oil cost more but thats to be expected, its concentrated thc.

And ive always thought drug Users should be punished less (or not at all), illegal drug Dealers should be punished more. They know what theyre doing, they know the risk, dont play big boy games if you cant take the heat. Especially people that push meth for example, fuck you for poisoning your community, not sorry if you go to prison. Hope you learn something.

Some dude selling bags of weed, idgaf. You can get busted with that a few times before they lock you away for a long time. Thats the risk you take.
