That Legal Weed

Ever wonder what it’s like to buy legal weed in Nevada and Cali? Personally I had to find..and what I found out was…
[read more=”Read More” less=”Read less”]

It’s awesome! Literally like a dream come true! A potheads paradise! To tell you a little about it, I’m just going to answer the questions I’ve been getting here at home like:

Where did you buy the weed?What did you get? How much did it cost?

I bought everything from dispensaries. The 1st one that popped my cherry was Jenny’s in Las Vegas, Nevada. When you first walk in you give them your ID. An out of state ID is not an issue. While they verify it’s real you’re asked to sit on the couch and wait a few minutes.

Those few minutes I’ll never forget. We already know I’m not use to buying “legal” weed and usually this transaction is way more secretively handled, you know?!?! Not to mention I had eaten some THC gummies on the plane ride over a few hours earlier:

So while I’m sitting there waiting, I see a cop! And in my mind I’m thinking, “This is a set up!”

But then they called my name and I walk through the doors to the candy store! It was as if the gates of heaven had just opened before my eyes! They have everything!!

On this, my 1st experience, I picked up some White Widow, Purple Trainwreck, 6 pre-rolls and some Space Ghost live resin crystals:

All labeled telling you how much THC, CBD, who grew it, where, when and so much more! I love that part, being able to know exactly all the details about what your smoking.

The next morning, bright and early, was time to ride out for Cali while smoking on some Vegas White Widow:

There I went my favorite of all the dispensaries, One Love Beach Club in Long Beach, California. Where I got some Under Dog:

OG Crumble:

Some pre-rolls:

And my absolute favorite this Extreme-Lee live resin cartridge:

I did go to a few other dispensaries where I also picked up some Lucid Oils Dab Syrup , other weed strains, edibles and some shatter!

As for pricing and finding dispensaries in which ever parts of Nevada or California you might like to visit. I’ll say this, I spent on average around $80 at each stop. What I did, being a tourist out of my element, was I made an account with GreenRush and used my own promo code:

Which uses your location to tell you what’s in the area, where are the deals and it took $20 off my first order. I saved some cash and time by ordering online a few times. Other times, like my 1st time, I was just a walk-in and I do recommend being a walk-in a few times too because it’s an experience that I absolutely loved!

The entire trip was lit! If you haven’t visited a recreational state yet, you totally should. It’s so freeing of an experience and I just can’t wait for everybody to legalize nationwide!

Hollyweed is Finally Legal

As of January 1st the state of California is now the 6th state where you can buy and sell “legal” also known as recreational marijuana thanks to Proposition 64. But how “legal” is it really? How much more will you have to pay with the government taxes placed on cannabis? And what can you now do and not do with your “legal” marijuana?
[read more=”Read More” less=”Read less”]



How legal is it?

The recreational use of marijuana is for adults aged 21 years or older, permitting smoking in a private home or at a business licensed for on-site marijuana consumption. Smoking is to remain illegal while driving a vehicle, anywhere smoking tobacco is, and in all public places. Up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana are legal to possess under this measure. However, possession on the grounds of a school, day care center, or youth center while children are present remains illegal. An individual is permitted to grow up to six plants within a private home as long as the area is locked and not visible from a public place. Prop 64

Taxes?

Here’s what your looking at in taxes:

 

This I personally predict will in fact cause 1 of two outcomes. 1 more people are going to get their MMJ card. How to do so is right here in one of my older post: Green Rush. 2 people are going to start down grading their weed. Top shelf will become a privilege because a 34.5% is no joke. Say top shelf cannabis goes for $40 (which is low balling) an 1/8, with the new taxes you’ll be looking at $53.80 at check out. Or everybody is going to just grow their own, which is now “legal.” Well, the first 6 plants are anyway.

What you can’t do:

The state has more than 1,300 pot dispensaries, but only 94 have been granted temporary licenses to sell marijuana for non-medical use. State rules dictate that these retailers will not be able to sell weed between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

You cannot smoke in public places or in your car. Which is just another way for the cops to catch you with a DUI, so read this to save your ass with them: How to Avoid Legal Ramifications. And you must be 21 or older.

Penalties include: Individuals under age 18 convicted of marijuana use or possession are required to attend drug education or a counseling program and complete community service. Selling marijuana without a license is punishable by up to six months in a county jail, a fine up to $500, or both.

Cool new things you can do:

On the upside there are some cool things about “legal” weed like lit yoga! Lit Yoga Studios is LA’s first plant practice yoga studio and definitely something to check out! You must pre- register here: Lit Yoga

And if your in the Long Beach area, home to Snoop Dogg, you need to visit a Jack in the Box to try out a weed-themed- Merry Munchie Meal. The meal will only be available in Snoop Dogg’s hometown of Long Beach from January 18-25 and will include a half serving of curly fries and onion rings, two tacos, five mini churros, three crispy chicken strips and a small drink. For more details on that visit: here

There are going to be a lot of changes, good and bad, and it will take some time to adjust but if your looking for recreational cannabis in Cali head over to Green Rush and use promo code Smokette to save some cash on these new taxes.
