That sucks.
I wouldn't risk it either.

Do they have a MMJ program there?
I bet it's very expensive.
It is in Florida.
That's the main barrier that keeps people from doing it legally.
You can't get nothing from the MMJ place until you spend a bunch of money getting the card.
That makes it way easier to just give a small amount of money to your neighbors boyfriend (or whoever) each week instead.:(
To be able to get on the MMJ program, they suggest you get a doctor to help you. In addition to all the other money you’ve got to layout. I’m not sure if I qualify, although I did injure my knee a few years ago, but I kicked the pain killers I’d been on. And I stopped taking xanax too, but I don’t know if that enough. Pharma and doctors would like you to take their meds, actually!!

My friend in weed was with my neighbor for years, so it was really easy to get. Now that they broke up, I don’t have a number for him. I’d feel a bit strange calling him, anyway. He basically just helps people out, for a bit of profit. Lol

If I had seeds, I might try growing in a pot. But I know it’s not that easy. CBD just hasn’t been doing it for me since lockdown, though. I regret cutting off all my partying friends now that I’d like to cop something!

How you doing, 5150? I heard things are getting worse in FL now with corona, even though they’re opening up. I’m really not looking forward to any vaccine they may want to mandate!!

The prices aren't totally nuts here but they are bad enough.
If i'm very lucky i'm spending $150 a month.
The only reason I get away this cheap is I save my money and buy a 5 month supply in one round.
I only have to pay the MMJ doc $70 twice in 10 months that way.

i'd be spending a $100 a month the other way.

But, I also wouldn't have my shiny get out of jail free card.

To me, that alone is worth the extra $50 a month.

That was my reason for getting the card to begin with.
I'm getting too old for courts, jails, Probation officers, and all that nonsense.

it's bad though. there is no such thing as a 1/4 here..
Everything is 1/8th.
I can't even find one gram carts here.
One place has them but they are $94 each!
The place I get my carts from (Liberty Health Sciences) has $35 half gram ones which I can deal with.

But with the flower I've seen $50 1/8ths.
$30 to $35 per 1/8th is a deal here.
Every once in a while you'll catch something in the $25 to $28 per 1/8th range but you have to wait for deals and shop around.
Then they only let you get so many (four or two depending)

One place (Surterra) has $30 1/8th's all day but sometimes the quality isn't there.
That's one where I have to call and ask what they have a day in advance then go to FlMedicalTrees on Reddit to see what the consensus is.
I leaned that one the hard way.

Also I learned about asking for THC levels first the hard way too.


How bad is bad on Illinois?
We were paying @$300 for an 1/8, when we were able to get it from said neighbor BF. It was okay, but not amazing. Although one time he had a high CBD strain that was great. It almost felt like a very light opiate. Dreamy and noddy.

I’ve never gotten busted and I don’t want to start now. All of the people who used to be street sellers have been swept away and the only way to get anything is to have someone come to your house. Uncool!

Wait, you were on xanax and pain meds at some point?
You are golden.
You're in.
They will do just about anything to see you not go back on that stuff.
All you need to do is mention that the problem that caused to to be on those pills is either back or it never went away.
You need to find one of those "You don't pay unless you get accepted" doctors.
Do you have those there?
If so the first appointment is expensive but they pretty much guarantee your acceptance if/when they take your money.

The Covid thing is bad.... for 20 to 30 year olds
Luckily i'm no longer in that age bracket.
When I was that age I was a dumbass who would have done something stupid and got corona.

Also the cases are rising but hospitalizations and deaths are at a steady decline.
This means that even though positive covid results are rising the most important death curve has so far been flattened.

There are still a lot of people out on the streets, unfortunately some aren't wearing masks.
They are especially important when you go indoors with other people.
Orange Country (Orlando) just made masks mandatory this weekend because there is a spike there.

it's mostly densely populated large cites that are having the problems.
Miami, Tampa, Orlando, etc..
I'm really glad I moved now.
I'm in an unincorporated area between two small towns.
The entire county has had 19 deaths so far.
There was a huge breakout of covid in the county jail that added 75 cases to the list in one day last week as well.

Yep, pain killers and xanax separately and together. That kick was horrible!! I did it myself at home, and it still amazes me that I got through it.

Cool, good to know they’ll help me out. Not that I’m going to go back on anything now. I’m used to being clean now and vaping helps me not want to take anything. Smoking and coffee used to give me panic attacks sometimes.

I think they have helping doctors here. I haven’t looked in a while though. Cuomo keeps making noises about legalizing, but he’s still too busy banning flavors and fighting corona now.

That's horrible.
Then they wonder why people buy it off the streets

You can't charge even double of what the guy standing in the alley down the street is charging and expect people to waste that much money to "do the right thing".

There's a reason business is booming in Oregon
Lower taxes.

I used to grow so i think all prices are to high. I enjoyed trading with other like mind growers. Kept things simple n honest... n most importantly kept me in the amount of medicine i needed.

And that was the setup for the “vaping illness”!! Kids couldn’t afford it so they went to someone on the street or on the phone.

And it’s going to be worse for vapers when Deeming kicks in. Like here in NY, you can’t buy any 100mg nic or nic base, since it’s a tobacco product. That article you posted already talked about people selling 10mls of nic to people under the radar. It’s a bad situation, although it might be exactly what the gov’t wants so they can crack down harder!

Late last night a neighbor was walking by and asked if I’d be up late for a smoke with him. Dude brought over a very tasty potent hybrid that his roommate grew and insisted on leaving a nice little nugget before he went home after we smoked. Ha ha I’m enjoying it again this morning with my coffee. 😇
