Hmm they don't tell you what it is you're smoking, just give you a number and how strong it is? Hard pass. Too easy for them to put anything in there. I prefer to know exactly what I'm smoking.

I'd much prefer boutique varieties from small time growers that grow with care and passion for the plant.

I'm curious why the public view of the cannibas industry is dominated by all these rappers. Isn't it a bunch of old hippies that really should be getting credit, and a paycheck for their hard work? Not to mention their legal woes. Just makes my head hurt a little when I see super millionaires like Jay Z cashing in when the unsung little guys did all the work. It's crapola.

You are most definitely not the only one who feels this way. I guess its a good thing that celebrities are jumping on the cannabis bandwagon, but a retired crack dealer isnt the best ambassador for our community imo....

I whole heartedly believe that if "we" as a community want to garner some respect, we have to start treating cannabis like the medicine it is. I think that starts with proper documentation of lineage, so people can identify what it is that they are ingesting. This is just straight up legal drug dealing in my opinion.

I say people that have zero passion will show the sales % just like a cigar or a fine wine. There’s 5 dollar box wine and crazy priced wine or cigars . at this point people in the industry can quicker their sale and have no problem selling incurred and not processed to the level of its value . Process and curing is 30% of end result . You think whisky and all these fine arts of process and curing is for kicks and giggles ? They do such because it changes the ball game for what your sales present

Being cannabis in the illegal state for so long , people don’t realize they are missing out or don’t care “yet” for the finer quality and demand better . It’ll happen ( just slowly )

Even Franzia boxed wine tells you what kind of grapes they use.

This is where our society is at. Praising a crack dealer for being good at dealing crack.

Meanwhile real growers of a harmless "drug" that survived the war on them go unsung, can't get legit licenses, are flat out blackballed in some cases......and the crack dealers are getting all the licenses, the praise.....even "inventing" things like 'moon rocks'. Yes, I've even seen that claimed.

Sometimes, just sometimes I think to myself......b197180e58be78500d3954da8ebae563b9bd7b9f2f27ce0006295a7f4863a82a_1.jpg
 
I wouldn’t reduce Jay-Z to just another crack dealer. Additionally, there are important considerations to be made about how the drug war as affected some communities in a disproportionate manner. Our best hope is that lawmakers leave space for those who fit in that category (FYI, I don’t think that Jay-Z fits here) while also leaving space for those who care for the plant, what it provides us on a personal level, and it’s healing potential.

Not everyone involved will start as care-takers for the plant species. What we should really keep our eyes peeled for is lawmakers handing all the licenses to corporate fat cats whose sole interest is watching their returns, you know because daddy needs a new yacht. Either way, I wouldn’t expect anyone on this board to be interested in a celebrity branded product in fancy packaging that doesn’t provide us with information on lineage, or the type of nuanced information that is commonly discussed in places like this.
