    I have a buddy moving to Boulder this month, any recommendations for places he should check out? Not mmj related, just life related.

    How do you think the cops would do with a modern smartphone and it's security settings? I could just see them holding you down and forcing you to thumb swipe your phone, lol. I suppose they could though.
    Mine is a few years old and password protected. It would most likely require a warrant to have it hacked.

    Those low prices don't seem to be stopping the commercial growers from expanding and pumping out even more product.
    I have an old grower buddy that's employed by a wheat farmer turned cannabis farmer in Eastern Washington. He's expanding each year and even plans to start growing hemp and strip the CBD out and sell it too.

    Perhaps, we will have to see how it's going to unfold.

    Don't know about new england, but it is legal in mass. Except, you can't legally buy or sell it. Not even a gram, not even to a med patient (unless you are a licensed dispensary). No legal sales of any kind to rec consumers.

    All you can do is grow it, and possess it, within limits. Ironically, you can't even sell seeds or clones legally within the state.

    Crazy rules. My plants were immaculately conceived. But they (and I) are 100% legal under state law.

    Well $7 g is the real price of weed, meaning what I think is reasonable in the current climate and what people pay where I live, or 3 for $20. An ounce would be about $150-160. It's just that some people live in a high sucker zone I guess. Lucky you. You get $400 for 32 g? You hit the mother lode of rubes.

    I guess it depends on your local market. I could if I wanted get $200 an ounce, all day long. This is about $50 less than weed would fetch, before legalization.

    If the pot is just for stoners then charge what the market will bear but how many needy patients have to do without because every greedy bastard, including the gov't, wants to cash in using prohibition pricing as a base-line for sales. The BM will always be able to beat those prices and the war on pot will never end.

    Set the plant free so everyone can grow what they want then prices will for sure fall as they should to real market levels.

    Crappy, toxic BM pot sells here for about $250/oz. I got a qp from my last harvest I'll let go for $500 but as I don't deal I don't know anyone with 500 to spare. :D
