    Look people, we should support our local dispensaries. None of this making hash and stuff @ home if you can so resist.
    We voted this in, and we need to make sure that we take lessons from CO and WA as how not to mess it up. Good times. :)

      Why support a dispensary that charges over $4000.00 per pound ? The dispensary is paying $1000 – $1200 to the grower ….. Sound like the dispensaries are greedy .. Do not support the over charging of a plant that has huge medicinal properties … There is a lot of ignorance surrounding the taxing of a free plant … Do your research , Colorado and Washington booth have huge black markets that thrive now because of the new marijuana rules …. Exactly what the governments were trying to stop …

        I appreciate this feedback. It feels like we can never really win sometimes.
        Can you recommend some sites that offer extensive information on the economic impact of the states where it is legal?

          Normal retail is 2x..its a endemic problem in society. People seem to want to act as though retailers are as valuable or more valuable a contribution to the product as producers when they are about half as much as producers.

          • What’s it

            True. But either way, both retailers and producers create jobs.

      • Bongstar420

        If you had better stuff…you would get $1800-2200 like me. But still, they should be doing 0.5 mark ups and us growers should be doing more advanced work as a group. All this low ball half wit product isn’t worth supporting since Marlboro is still a Marlboro even if you break the company up to a million independent owners.

        It helps to get ones act together and buy oz.

  • I think the idea is once it is legal and can be grown freely, then the goal should be to produce the best marijuana for the best price. But really for the best you gotta grow your own at home!

    • Bongstar420

      Thats funny, average people producing above average results consistently..

      Is that the bet then? That home growers are as good as the best horticulturalists around?
