my Gods - how many millions did they spend to work out that people tend to buy the cheapest product.....

This deserves an IGNOBEL prize

Not just cheapest, but simplest and with quality assurance.

Best bang for your buck.

You know you won't get screwed over from legal sources. Not that badly at least, and would have recourses available.

Probably people who have friends who still grow buy "black market" often, but then there's not as much selection.

If only I got an euro every time I read a another confirmation of weed that we've known for ages. It's slow work, convincing people they've just been lied to about weed. (And am not saying there are no negatives.)

It’s a relevant point as to how important this research is to have any significant amount of money spent on especially if this is the only thing they looked at. Although confirming “obvious” beliefs is an important part of science.

But what struck me most about your comment is it’s hilarious you think a team of 2 social scientists relying on public grants are likely to be spending “millions”.

Idk if white market weed is actually cheaper

In many markets it's getting there.

12$ 1/8 oz happy hour special is way cheaper than anything I've ever found on "the street"

And ease of access...

Stopping by a random dispensary on the way home is more likely than your "guy" living along your way home.

And relative Peace of mind knowing the product isn't being grown with unregulated use of illegal pesticides (a known issue of black/ grey market)

I buy the most convenient option then worry about cost and quality. Rolling into a storefront is way, way more convenient than dealing with a sketchy dealer
