Don’t say you support this community if you haven’t bought weed at a dispensary.
It’s getting tough to be respectful toward the potheads who proudly tell me how they don’t participate in retail cannabis.
If you aren’t supporting the knowledgeable budtenders at ethical shops, buying intentional products then you are missing out on the honor of helping to shape the industry during a historical time. I get it, you’re “connected”. You don’t need specialty products, hate taxes, fear government tracking, miss 215. Today’s market? It’s bleak, expensive, and peaced out man.
That is exactly why you need to go spend $10 at your closest shop.
Even if you don’t believe in karma, the law of attraction, or the general rule that what you choose to support matters, it shouldn’t be difficult to find logical reasons to shop legal in California.
Do you understand what it takes to bring a cannabis product to market? To find flower without powdery mildew? A gummy without junk ingredients? Papers that don’t taste terrible or joints that burn all the way?
Right, you didn’t consider production, regulations, marketing, gatekeepers and all that other “corporate BS”. For you it’s about getting high, or the fact that you aren’t considering the big picture.
