The top quality has not suffered, but every stinky patchouli wearing trustafarian with a skanky dreadlock now is a "grower" or part of some "coop". 5 years ago there was no room in the market for someones $25 eighth because everyone was selling them for $50 and they were the dankest sacks you'd ever seen. Now there are 4000 dispensaries between here and Summit County, and they all sell a range of products from $25 eigths to $60 grams of hash and caviar.
I'm smokin with ya. Just woke up, bout to go to work. Chronically.
I dunno, I think weed is better now than it was 20 years ago for sure. And it is certainly much cheaper, esp if you factor inflation into it. I was paying 60 for an 1/8 of crap and 80+ for an 1/8 of the chronic back in high school and I am paying half that now with the benefit of seeing weighed in front of me ifyouknowwatimean.
but yea, you buy an 1/8 for 25 you get what you pay for. I don't know how it is in CO, but here you can see smell and inspect what you're getting. I complained about a previous batch being too stemmy and they tossed me a free g of hash to keep me happy! I buy a lot
and there's large block of a major street dedicated to dispensaries so competition is tough! Now that is progress!
it's even getting pretty relaxed here about smoking in public. There's a lot of cigarette nazis and very few places you can legally smoke cigs in public. I've found ligting up a j in one of those areas isn't too much of an issue, Ive even ad security walk by me and not hassle me. I keep trying to push the boundaries of where i can publically get stoned. The #1 thing I do is always make sure Im no where near any children or school and Im in an area ok to smoke cigs.
Just the other day I was on a train platform waiting for a train (not high) and someone else
was smoking a j. the announcer comes on and says "There is no smoking on the train platform. Tobacco OR marijuana. There is a designated smoking area at the end of the platform"
i almost died laughing.
