Our elected officials are trying to change this and they need to hear from you

It takes two minutes. Go to the NORML website, fill out that form, and they'll send letters to your state representatives and senators on your behalf. It's so fucking easy. These bills are on the floors of our legislative bodies right now. Take two minutes and tell them to listen to their constituents, not the corporate dispensaries.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.

I’m from NJ but live in Colorado. I almost fell over when my dad told me he bought a 100mg bag of gummies for over 60 dollars. I pay about 15-17 for that here including tax. In time it’ll come down but I didn’t know it was that huge of a difference!

>I almost fell over when my dad told me he bought a 100mg bag of gummies for over 60 dollars.

I think your dad's getting ripped - those go for around $25-35 from what I've seen. Not that that's a great price (and it's also kind of annoying that we can only get 10x10mg bags of basic gummies) but it's not that bad, and I mean, as long as you're not a heavy user that's a cheap price to pay a pop. At least they're more consistent quality than flower here.

But yeah our dispo scene is kind of dogshit. I'm glad I'm not going to get fired for this stuff anymore, but it's kinda what I expected when NJ announced they were gonna get into the legal business.

If you look on weedmaps most places have them for 40-60, sometimes higher.

There have been a few times I've seen them on sale for 35 or 30, but that's not the reg.

For medical the prices are about 10 or 15 cheaper though, so med is 25-35.

This is all anecdotal from a few searches on weedmaps. If there are cheaper places I'd like to know too

Last time I went, they stepped it up a bit. Mass wasn't much better the first time I went.

You are dealing with the Walmart of weed. These MSO’s are literally the worst. They are running this state like a cartel and they set prices so no one is undercutting the other guy.

The good news is smaller facilities are going to start opening up and they are not part of the cannabis trade association and they will force these MSOs to drop their prices. Give it 6 months to a year before these prices really drop.

Another option is to go to the weedmans store in trenton where his prices are a lot more reasonable

Maine Crafy Cannabis. Blackwood cultivation. Omg. So good. I've never thought those flavors were possible..I recently tried Albarino. Shit smells ans taste like grapefruit. Meanwhile NJ, runtz doesn't smell or taste like what you read about. We got inconsistent, dry weed. Some places have sold moldy products. Cartridges clog consistently.

That depends. Are you buying black market brands? If so I'll pass. I can pay 40 bucks for Blackwood Cultivation .5g carts because it's some of the best tasting carts out there. I wouldn't touch Cakes or Jeeter Juice brands for example with a stick. Those pur pods and the like are all what's called boof brands.

However, if you're getting legit CBX for example, then you're way better off. It's better getting good trusted brands but they can also be bootlegged by fakes too. You got brands like Cake and Big Chiefs which are just bad whether or not they're legit or faked.

Maine is a nice new beacon of cannabis hub in the east coast that is setting itself apart with their uniquely terpy and amazing looking weed and the price generally tends to be half of what we pay in NJ. Some of these dispos knowingly sold mold and told customers you can't get sick from smoking moldy weed.

This is genuinely not a flex. But I traveled the world looking for the best weed.

If you want to talk about highest THC & terp count. That's in California.

Stuff from different areas hit different.

Also it's about how the growers grow. I like organic no till products. It would be great if its sun grown or ocean grown but that is difficult to pull off without contamination.

So it's all subjective.

1 thing I know is that NJ dispensaries sell garbage bud.


Mullethunt t1_j58owe0 wrote

THC % means nothing in the effects of how you're getting high. I'm not really sure how you can confidently say that. Places like Michigan are producing absolute fire flower and Colorado produces some of the best rosin/concentrates.

You did not. You stopped at California like it's the end all be all. Anyone that brings up THC % as if it's any meaningful factor kind shows their lack of education as well. You said you traveled the world looking for the best weed and only mentioned California. How is that saying that Michigan has some absolute fire flower and Colorado has some extremely high terp concentrates. Colorado and Oklahoma both piss on California's concentrates.

So no, you basically did not say any of what I said. You made it sound like California is the end all be all and that could not be further from the truth.

Is it still that rule where you can only sell it on the same property that it was grown?

If they had more dispensaries there would be more competition and therefore lower prices. Idk why NJ legalized weed if every township refused to have a dispensary, as if the 16 bars and liquor stores per township wasn't overkill itself.

Obviously that went down, now you can buy 1g Carts for $40 (In NJ, it’s $65 for 1/2g cart).What bothers me about Jersey weed is the quality is awful. Selling smalls for the same price as big buds, the weed tastes like chemicals (likely due to being treated), and it’s usually rock hard, old, and full of tiny stems. I “know a guy” and prefer his supply over dispo. Plus, dispos here SUCK - they are set up like a bank, there is no finesse or ambiance at all.

Supply regarding dispensaries, not their inventory. We have 20ish dispensaries for 9 million people. When I visited Jasper in Alberta last fall they had 4 dispensaries for 5000 people. Prices were pretty cheap.

And if people weren't buying the prices would be lower. So clearly wrong about demand.

Enjoy the city. When I walked from Penn Station to 51st a few months ago I saw 2 dispensaries, 4 "smoke shops" that also sold weed, and a guy in Times Square who set up a table on the sidewalk full of weed. All were illegal.

They’re not “illegal” in the city (minus the guy with the table), they’re operating in a grey area while the state figures out the structure, they have “future permits”.

They can’t be too illegal if actual cops are assisting the private security with entry and exit control.

Of course they can be. Just like all of the state programs are illegal at the federal level. "Not currently enforced" is not the same as legal.

A big part of why they have a monopoly is because these are large, multistate corporations greasing the palms of politicians so they can keep out mom and pop dispensaries. There's NO good reason for there to be only what, 1-2 independent sellers in the entire state.

Supply and demand applies, sure, but when the market is completely closed, there is no way for competition to help meet demand at affordable prices. If you look at other industries with monopolies, you can see how this will play out. We pay way too much for internet and cable why? Monopolies.
