    Weed is legal in Illinois.  This is fucking awesoooo .....



    :open_mouth:

    Holy shit!  $65 for an eight and another 35% is taxes on top of it?!!!   great news for your local drug dealer :one_finger: ...

    Youch! Yeah, not sure how this is sustainable. I got 1/4 ounce for $20 on Black Friday (tax included - our prices always include tax unlike IL apparently). My typical eighths are in the $20 - $25 range at retail shops, again tax included. On top of the $67 eighth they nail you with taxes based on % THC??? Wow. So almost $75 for 3.5g of flower. Even more than that for a .5g cart????  Apparently the politicos are trying to bolster the black market for some reason. Paying $300 for what should have been around $100 out the door is robbery. Hopefully once the thrill of legal weed sales dissipates they'll realize they aren't doing themselves any favors by making the taxes so onerous. I understand the novelty of legal weed, but how are those prices justified? Is the black market there also stupid expensive? Kooky.

    Yeah, only way I get to shops is if they do deals. A lot of times you can get buy one get one free on edibles or shatter etc. I find prices differ from shop to shop as well, so it helps to study Leafly, weedmaps ect.

    67 bucks for a half gram cart is crazy.  I couldn't believe how cheap Seattle was though.  Cheapest state I've been to thus far.

    The first time I went to Colorado after legalization,  I bought a100 mg candy bar.  I had no concept of relative strength so I ate more than half at the hotel.  I was literally comatose until the next afternoon.  Way..... way too much.

    That candy bar would be worth its weight in gold in Illinois.

    I'd be interested to see what Michigan is charging.  I know Michigan lets you grow six plants.  I'm not sure what Illinois lets you do.

    That's good for two or three long ass buzzes for me.  I tend to keep to 15 or 20 for a full evening/ night.

    I’m pretty sure it’s only a 6% sales tax and if you have a medical card they don’t charge the sales tax. There’s a 10% excess tax, but I think that’s paid by the seller and already figured into prices. If you look around you can find a
    1gr cart for around $40 give or take a few dollars, and again there’s always deals to be found.

    Yeah 5 hours is perfect.  Eat after dinner when your digestive system really gets moving.  Buzzing by 8, sleeping like a baby by 1 or 130. Perfect.

    A one gram cart would last me about a week, maybe. I honestly don’t mess with carts that much, but the few times I have had them, about a week. I would say two or three hits off a cart is about equal to smoking a bowl of 20% flower. Most carts I’ve used are probably 60% to 70% thc.

    You must smoke between a quarter and a half a week if a gram only lasts you a week.  That seems to be some long daily sessions.

    Ha, I bet.  I don't love waking up stoned,  like I did that time.  It's like a huge weed hangover,  like a giant fog. 

    I may come to Toronto for a show.

    Well, the sessions are short, but numerous.

    I'd venture that a gram is probably better a quarter and half though.  Does that sound right?  Closer to half

    Yeah, that sounds about right. Probably, better a quarter, less than a half.

    I haven't eaten a whole one of those. It's usually hard for me to tell anyway because I smoke at the same time.
