I am the only person in my family that drives my family around to get food and medications etc. My sister is a card holding Medical Marijuana Patient who suffers from degenerative disk disease with arthritic burs and a crushed vertebrae in her neck. She uses Medical Marijuana for the Chronic Pain associated with those diseases.
I do not use recreationally nor medically but I am very active as an activist in the Arizona Cannabis movement. I have volunteered with Safer Arizona and Arizonans for Mindfull Regulation. I have circulated petitions for Safer Arizona last year and am circulating the current AZFMR petition.
The closest dispensary to us is Bloom Copper Country in Oracle, AZ. She can not cultivate her own because we are with-in 25 miles of the dispensary.
She went to the website that has on-line ordering for in-store pick-up. The on-line ordering system is shabby. It has no descriptions or strain profiles nor pictures. So she had to browse through the catalogue and find a strain and then go to multiple third party websites for strain information.
She decided on White Fire OG, however, she did not order it on-line. So yesterday I took her to go pay for it and pick it up.
My sister decided she wanted 3.5g of bud and 3.5grams of shake of White Fire OG. She did not take time to look over the packaging look at what she was getting.
By the time we got home she took the packages out of the bag. What she actually got was 1 3.5 gram sack of White Fire OG bud and one 3.5gram shack of White Romulan when she asked for 3.5 grams of White Fire OG along with the the sack of bud.
The bud sack that was packaged to look like one big bud when it was just a bunch of popcorn buds. When I went to open the Vacuumed sealed zip-locked package we noticed the package was not Vacuumed Sealed at all. We opened the package and weighed it contents on a digital scale. The weigt was not 3.5grams at all. It was actually 3.45grams. That is .05 grams light. The trim job on the buds was poor as well.
It is not the fact that the sack was light it is the principal, it is the honesty and giving their patients that have been forced to by their meds at the dispensary when the moved in. Patients should get 3.5 grams or just a bit more not just a bit less. She did not want to weigh the sack of shake after that.
My sister is on food stamps and awaiting an SSDI appeal so she does not have much money and has to beg and scratch to get her meds at the inflated prices of $35 for 3.5 grams of bud and $20 for 3.5 grams of shake.
My sister has a hard time with these on-line forms and communications so I have to speak up for her. I am very concerned that if packages are not sealed that they can be tampered with or contaminated. I hope the MyDx test becomes available to customers so they can test for THC/CBD and contaminants in the products they buy. The Dispensary industry needs to have secret shoppers to hold them accountable and maybe more.
