Legal prices vs MedMan prices
I saw this topic pop up in a review thread and I didn't want to hijack that thread, so...
Someone mentioned Ohio and how they handle their medical cannabis sales, and it got me to thinking about costs.
I live in west Texas. I have to go to Trinidad Colorado to find the nearest dispensary to me. My first time ever to a legal dispensary was at the CannaCo dispensary on the south side of Trinidad. It's right next door to the Walmart. Since then I have visited several more there. I highly recommend you visit Trinidad Colorado (pun!). It is a boom town for the Kind.
The cost of fuel, meals, and the stress of crossing state lines with quantities of a mostly harmless plant all equals out to about what a 1/2 oz of premium goes for here. So it would be more economical for me to buy quantities that have the word "pound" in it somewhere in Colorado than a 1/2 ounce of premium from here. The paranoia factor between Raton Pass and Texline is high though, the more you carry the more paranoia in that section. I wonder if it isn't some kind of government mind control.
So I order from here. The stress factor is nil, and a paid official from the Post Office hand delivers my meds right to my mailbox. That's way much better than a paid state official cuffing my hands and taking my meds.
I have been to Alaska, and the way they sell cannabis is how it ought to be done, imho. I was there last winter and experienced my first ever -40 temps. If you ask "is that in Celsius or Fahrenheit?" my answer is 'yes'. (old joke, I know)
So, to anyone living in/near a legal state, what are some of the gripes/problems with how your particular state does things? What kind of quality and quantity issues do they have? Someone mentioned that the prices in Ohio were higher than here, and I find that amazing.
