    Congrats to New Mexico too!


    Time for Federal.  Tipping point has been reached
    Yes, federal legalization is the only way all of this is really going to work. C’mon Biden...I would say that this administration is complicit with the racism surrounding the current legal status if they do not push for federal legalization.

    Illinois legalized recreational a couple of years ago, but you can't grow your own. It is strictly from State approved sites. Growing your own is a civil penalty and fine for up to 5 plants unless you have a State issued craft grower license. It is all about collecting taxes here. The taxation they are charging is ridiculous.

    New York is allowing plants.  6 per adult (3 mature) and up to 12 (6).  However, we cannot grow until a bit after the recreational stores are online.  I think people with medicinal cards though can grow sooner.  I am going to look to re-up my prescription if that is the case and the pharmacies are going to start offering better products in the meantime.

    The most interesting thing about the New York law, is that it allows for public consumptions sites.  I believe that means we will have marijuana 'coffee shops'

    Our law reads "It is legal to smoke in one’s own home and on-site in some cannabis-related businesses." I am not sure how many of the dispensaries have this option. The closest one to where I live is over an hour drive, so combined with the fact that I am subject to drug testing in my job, I am not a customer.

    A couple places like that popped up over here but didn’t seem to stick.

    Personally, as for the act of smoking itself, I’d rather be at home or in a comfortable environment to enjoy it rather than with a bunch of strangers in a public space.

    Kinda like how I prefer to watch movies too. 

    Because people suck ;)

    yeah, thats a good point.  I even hate bars these days (and have for about 10-15 years).  

    Not sure I would go out of my way for a coffee shop unless there was some kind of unique experience or something.  Maybe if I was out of town for business maybe

    I thought legalization was on Biden radar?  Just remove it from the list of illegal drugs.  Should be that simple.  

    Of course should have been that simple in Canada...

    One would think...because similar to a statement a certain poster here always likes to say “if you are complicit with racist policies, that makes you a racist”.  C’mon Joe, your silence is violence...

    Anyone can recommend a dispensary in DC?  We can’t get flower in Virginia, just concentrate and such.

    Just concentrate sounds like a happy problem to have, depending on the concentrate :)

    Well it's not the worst! But sometimes you like some flower.

    Well, it’s happened: I have become immune to edibles. I was taking in copious amounts of THC via these little goodies and it hit me that something’s off. Looked it up and it’s indeed a thing. Dammit!

    I’ll have to see if tinctures have the same (lack of) effect.

    It also may be time to finally dip my toe into the dabbing pool.

    How often are you taking them? I do it twice per month,  probably 15 MG. I definitely don't want to become immune.

    Daily, upwards of 100 mg. Flower helps immensely with my illness but edibles are (were) a nice way to amp it up.

    You should be fine ;)

    I knew something was wrong when my 250mg rosin-filled edibles weren’t doing it for me :( 

    I almost exclusively dab now.

    15 mg does nothing for me.  I usually need 300\400 mg... so I prefer flower still.  However, I do buy edibles every once in a while...

    You have no idea :) 

    I've had two separate ocassions where I've shared bud with Americans and left them nearly catatonic. That was just with high-potency marijuana with a little sprinkling of kief. My live rosin these days typically is between 70-80% THC. Works out to smoking about 20-35mg of THC per delightful inhale.

    Quick question - what the price on edibles?

    Just doing some shopping for tomorrow and wondering what everyone is paying in their parts....

    It really varies. 100 mg bags (cookies, gummies, etc.) are about $15-20, then you have pricier versions of those, depending on potency and manufacturer.

    Is that 100mg total?
    Or per gummy?
    How many gummies / bag?

    I'm looking at 13ea @ 15mg for $25 total
    so 195mg total for $25

    I don't normally f around w/gummies, but figured wtf - it's a holiday!

    Here, it’s usually 10 mg x 10 pieces. Either way, why not treat yourself! There are a bunch of deals to be had, and some freebies if you’re lucky.
