As studies have shown places with more liberal laws can have an effect on reducing youth usage such as in Colarado and Portugal
This is perhaps a unique Irish trait. In my experience and from feedback, it seems that in many other European countries it is possible to buy individual grams, or to find lower priced options in general, such as €20 deals.
Many have forked out €50 just to be left utterly disappointed.
If you wish to avoid street dealers then the dark net/deep web is the place to go. It will require some research but can result in some bargains compared to street dealers. This still appears to be a niche thing, and used primarily by a younger age group.
Before continuing perhaps we need the token disclaimer where I state that I neither endorse or condone the information below (except for publicly favouring law change). The information is merely to reflect the realities of the situation and highlight some possibilities.
Another risky but often rewarding venture is to grown your own. In the long run it is perhaps the cheapest of options, and you will have more control over the quality. But it can be ultimately costly if you are caught and appear before the courts.
Decriminilsation/Legalisation is one option, but it is unlikely for the time being given there is no political desire for it. The public appetite may not be fully there yet either, but arguably it is not far off given last years opinion poll showing almost 40% favouring law change.
However it should be remembered that national opinion polls for legalisation in America only passed the 50% mark in 2013. This despite the decades of activism and various state iniativies, primarily around medicinal use. The first poll in 1969 showed support at only 12% in America.
The quality of the cannabis can sometimes leave a bad taste in the mouth, literally. There are often reports from consumers on poorly grown, poorly dried and cured cannabis, and even contaminations.
A fifty bag is a term that will be familiar to most Irish cannabis consumers. For those unaware of its meaning, the term refers to €50 worth of cannabis, which often comes in a small baggie. The amount in the bag seems to vary not just by location, but by consumers in those locations. From…
That’s why the experts at Honest Marijuana have produced this instructional article—to help you make sense of the various standard amounts that you’ll find in your local dispensary. That way, you don’t have to look like a total newb when you make your first buy. Weed measurements no longer need to be a mystery!
The marijuana metric system is a confusing class of Standard International Units and US Customary units. But when you boil it all down, the main cannabis conversion you need to remember is:
Is the marijuana math adding up? You should be able to calculate that Snoop Dogg is smoking not quite three (2.89) ounces of cannabis a day since he says he smokes 81 blunts every day, given that 1 blunt equals about 1 gram and there are 28 grams in one full ounce of marijuana.
Colorado residents can buy Rick Simpson oil for $25 dollars a gram from legal dispensaries, such as Caregivers for Life.
Once you know how to do the math, you can determine if making your own marijuana concentrates, oils, edibles, and tinctures will help you save on cannabis costs based upon the price of weed in your area.
From there, it’s pretty easy to decipher the ganja jargon to calculate that “a half” equals 14 grams, “a quarter” equals 7 grams, an eighth equals 3.5 gram, and “a dub” will typically equal one full gram of marijuana.
A high-quality ounce of weed typically costs between $200 and $245 where recreational reefer use is legal in California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington. An ounce of pot costs comparatively more in states where marijuana hasn’t been legalized yet. Cannabis costs close to $300 per ounce in Florida, nearly $360 in New York, and just over $350 per ounce in Illinois, according to priceofweed.com .
Most marijuana users make their own cannabutter , but you can buy a 1.5-ounce jar of high-quality cannabutter from top THC chef Julie Dooley for $35-$30 dollars.
You can purchase the same amount of high-quality cannabis for as little as $25 (or less) in certain cities in Oregon.
