Price. These dispensaries are price gouging (exorbitant taxes and fees from the state are added separately to the receipt, so it's not that). It makes it at least twice as expensive shopping in a dispensary vs buying unregulated weed. But I still keep going for many other reasons. I'm sure they are making a ton of money. I wish they would be a little bit less greedy so it didn't cost me $300 every time I go.
