    Nice math… u wouldnt be skimped .34 g an eighth lol. If its only an extra .34 an ounce ud do .34 divided by 8 to see how much more ur supposed to get per eighth. .34 divided 8 equals
    .04 and fuck the rest of the decimal points after that if u care about a spec of weed ur an idiot like the one who did this sweet math.

  13. ActualCOResident

    Boi wtf are you guys paying over $150 for? Even if you’re paying $10 per gram (regular g price in CoS) that’s still only $280. For fucks sake, most dealers will cough up an 1/8 for $20. Pretty much any dealer out here will charge anywhere from $120-180 an ounce. I mean honestly I could get an ounce of wax for the price you guys pay for an ounce of bud.

  28. Brock

    Yeah, the amount of money spent on nourishing an appetite. I am looking for something over the top. The best I ever smoked I didn’t pay but 120.00 but that was in 1985 or so. We put a couple seeds in a pile of horse manure and forgot them. Upon a thought went back to check and couldn’t see the plants because they were laid over with bud. What came from that seed and a little pile of horse dung. I have never smoked any near or as good. Still searching for as good and nothing even close.
    Are you about ready to go, I heard a voice about 3hrs later after smoking that weed. I was still as high as I had ever been.
    I think the name of that strain should have been called
    “It’s a marvelous wonder”

    I like bananas coconuts and grapes

  30. BobE

    Seems like a huge disconnect here. I’m a middle man and pay around 175 a zip and street price here is around 220-240. The charge. Gram is 10-15 depending on time of day delivered or not etc.
