My best acquaintance Alex got a medical marijuana card from the state, and he is super stoked about it.
Now he has access to any of the local dispensaries.
All it cost him was $730, which is what the government charges for the card. That’s $730 per year, not a one-time fee. Alex finally encouraged me to get a card of my own, plus I told him “you show me the magical money tree where I can get $730 plus I’ll get the card.” Weed is really overpriced enough to smoke habitually, so paying that much extra money was completely out of the question. For $730 I could buy four ounces of cannabis from Jimbo, the high university child that sells weed from the back of his station wagon. Four ounces of cannabis is enough to keep me stoned for months on end! If I were to do it the real legal way, I wouldn’t have enough money left over to buy cannabis, because I would have paid it all to the government. If I ever start making more money, plus have a total of $730 to spare I would easily get my cannabis Rx card, just so I could start trying new products plus forms of weed. Alex is actually really generous with the cannabis products he gets at the dispensary, plus shares them with me from time to time. I simply prefer the cannabis edibles they sell, plus cannabis oil is pretty amazing to use in my vape pen. I’m really sure there are dozens of cannabis products I haven’t even heard about! Until that fee is eliminated, I will simply never know the joys of shopping in a real cannabis dispensary.
