    Prices are way too high, the novilty will wear off and people will go back to their old dealers.

      Since it only took 3 days to clear out stock, cost doesn’t seem way too high. Besides that, there are reasons to pay for quality and choice of strains. I’m sure there are also some growing pains getting it all started, so maybe the novelty will wear off, once everyone who wants some has some.

    The huge demand, and shortages, are boosting the prices. I bet prices will moderate when inventories improve.

    Shops sell some really high quality cannabis that is properly labeled with info that I like to have. Black market equaled regularly getting ripped off on price, quality, and time dealing with people I don’t want to deal with on their schedule. I have never seen 1/8 of quality product for less than $50 on black market. This is just personal observation and preference. You talk about going to your “buddies” so you probably have better results. Last, I want to be able to obtain and to be in possession of it through legit means. Too old to deal with legal risks and thankfully we’re in a time where we finally don’t have to.

      James, your connections suck, $50 for a quality 1/4 whould be top price

  • The cost of buying ANYTHING legal is going to be higher (pardon the pun) lol

    I mean your neighbour slugging moonshine and home made wine on his illegal website is not PAYING TAX or RENTS or STAFF or MARKETING of ANY REAL LEGALLY COMMON BUSINESS OVERHEADS?!
