Well I can start with NJ.

About 2 years ago MMJ was made accessible to more people. Before that it was just for those on Hospice. Now almost anyone with a pulse can get an MMJ card. The max amount per month someone can get is 3 oz. You must see your doctor once every 3 months, 6 months, or yearly depending on the doctor to get a refill.

Needless to say its become a big business here getting people on the program. The upfront costs are $250.00 (for the card, fees, visit) - then the doctor can charge you $150.00 every 3 months for your refills. If you find a good doctor he will give you a yearly script.

The bigger problem is product availability.

NJ is a tiny state(47th in size)_ but its 11th in population. This is causing a big problem. We only have 7 dispensaries in the whole state. It's also very expensive. The average cost of 7 grams is roughly 100 bucks. Your looking at roughly 1200 bucks a month for 3 oz. I know you think 3 oz sounds like a lot. It would be if you were going to smoke it all.

...and I'm sure there are plenty of you that would accept that challenge gleefully. :D :D

However, when you cook with it, make edibles, tinctures, concentrates, etc.. things change.

I will tell you the product is fantastic though.

There is a referendum on the ballot in 2020 to make it recreational in NJ. I hope they do this because it will drive the cost down and bring in some well needed supply.

Unfortunately for me I live in the heart of the Bible belt in North Carolina. In 2018 they made cbd legal but they still criminalize any thc products. But they have no problem passing out opiods like candy. So maybe one day we'll see relief in the form of thc. But at least we are able to use cbd.

Getting a card is as easy as seeing a doctor that has the license to recommend pot.
Cost of this doctor visit was as high as $250, but is dropping. I got a discount for being a disable veteran. $27.50.
Then the state gets paid $102.50 for most, $27.50 if you are on social security.
This card is good for two years.
You don't even have to tell them why and for what ailment you need pot.

Card holders can grow 12 plants at a time.
Two card holders can grow together in one address, for a total of 24 plants.

Card holders can have
3 oz on them at any one time.
1 oz of concentrate.
72 oz of edibles.
8 oz of pot at their resident.

1 gram/ml vape carts are about $30 each
Ounces sell for between $100 to $300

We have a LOT of shops,,, There are about 10 within a mile, any where you look.


My good friend is a politician, he said more people voted yes on the state question than the total number of people that voted for governor.

And this is in a state that it's against the law to vape on state owned property.

But we can now smoke pot , topless in public.

So you have your own personal dispensary ... nice ..

Florida is about the same as NJ but they only sell 1/8th and I can get 2 1/2 oz per 35 days.
1/8th is $25 to $50

The place I go has decent stuff (THC 18% to 27%) and it's $28, $33, and $40

I just saw the $40 stuff today and it's 18% THC but the $28 stuff is 27.7% THC

Why would anyone want the $40 stuff that's almost a full 10% less THC???
The only reason for the card is the THC part:rolleyes:

The first time was $200 and I get a recommendation which means i'm deemed worthy to get my 2 1/2oz.
Now it's $70 for 70 days so if I really wanted to I could go twice to get up to five oz


I have to pay the state $75 a year for the card.

NY has medical it you have to have something life threatening, in chronic pain, in danger of doing opioids, if you’re epileptic or have PTSD. Possibly a few other things. Doesn’t really seem like it would be possible to get if you’re not seriously ill.

Bummer!

Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor facetiously tweeted, "I’m truly afraid if PA legalizes marijuana it could help fill a massive budget shortfall and very likely, many zero people will die from overdose. It would also trigger thousands of new jobs and inadvertently eliminate 20k+ annual arrests. And purity and safety would also skyrocket.We’d also risk eliminating a substantial, systematic, racially skewed public policy outcome. Pennsylvania would also jeopardize farmers by providing greater financial security and opportunities.This reckless action would have a truly debilitating impact on cartel employment and finances. Gird up now thy loins and valiantly resist what could be billions in revenue, thousands of jobs, less incarceration, and a shocking jolt of personal freedom."
This was in a newsletter this morning.Pa government officials are either in this boat or the idiotic -it's a known fact mj leads to heroin. Growing mj is still a felony with possible jail time and 10,000 fine.Our governor supports mj.
