Would You Wait on Line for an Hour to Buy Legal Weed?

Legal weed is officially on sale in California and that means two things

1.Higher Prices thanks to higher taxes. See: MedMen

Yep, that’s $65 for an 1/8 of weed. Whenever a state legalizes weed, it takes a while for dispensaries to switch over from medical to recreational. That means the demand far outweighs the supply. And with supply low thanks to few dispensaries being licensed to sell recreational weed, that means way higher prices. As more dispensaries open and more brands get rec licenses, those prices will normalize. But until then…

2.Mega-long lines to purchase legal weed at dispensaries

Here’s what that looks like:

So the real question is…who in their right mind would wait on this line to buy weed instead of simply calling up a friend or ordering delivery through places like Eaze? People without medical marijuana cards and with no clue how to easily get weed–that’s who.

While it’s for sure cool being apart of history and to purchase legal weed for the first time, count me out. What’s the longest you’d wait in a line to purchase legal weed?
