Weed Measurements: The Marijuana Metric System

Source: Greenito.com

Do you tell your budtender just to give you $20, $50, or $100 worth of weed without knowing how much actual medicine you’re getting for your money? Have you ever felt embarrassed when your budtender asks if you want a dub or an eighth because you have no @#!$ing idea what they are talking about?

Does the world stop making sense when your budtender tells you how much an ounce of your favorite strain costs? It’s ok, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there.

Many people who are green to buying grass have felt this way at one point or another. That’s because weed measurements are messed up.

There, we said it! Weed measurements are messed up. Whew, feels good to get that off our chest. Seems like someone should reform this particular speed bump in canna-culture. But, honestly, the marijuana metric system has been around for so long that it’s going to be nearly impossible to change. Better just to get used to it.

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!

Along the way, we’ll also:

  • Explain all the ganja jargon commonly used among cannabis users in the United States.
  • Break down some regional pot prices by size so you can make sure you’re not getting ripped off by your reefer retailer.
  • Establish some cannabis concentrate conversions so you know roughly how much marijuana it takes to make butter for concentrates, edibles , oil , and tinctures .

If you want to become an expert in marijuana measurement, read this guide from start to finish. If you’ve come here looking for something specific, we’ll help you find it. Follow these links to each section of the article:

And don’t feel bad if you don’t get it all down on the first try. It may take a while to understand all the conversions and jargon. But with a little practice, you’ll be talking like a long-time stoner in no time.

Marijuana Measurement Madness

Most Americans are used to measuring things with the United States’ Customary Units as opposed to the International System of Units , better known as the Metric System.

Indeed, one of the most confusing things about purchasing and consuming cannabis in the United States is that we use a combination of international metrics and US units to describe the quantities of cannabis we use in our everyday lives.

Ounces and pounds are examples of US Customary Units that we borrowed from the British before General Washington’s hemp-clad continental army won our nation’s independence.

The gram , a measurement of mass from the International System of Units, originally referred to the weight of a cubic centimeter of water. A gram is now more simply defined as one one-thousandth of a kilogram , which is the current base unit of the international metric system.

The general confusion and vague jargon that every single cannabis consumer has to comprehend in order to keep track of how much medicine they buy and use is the result of the discrepancies between international and U.S. scientific measurement systems.

That’s why weed measurements are so confusing: they are a mix of two different measurement systems. It’s like watching a movie that starts off as a rom-com and then suddenly changes to a horror movie about twenty minutes in. At the end, you’re left scratching your head and wondering what the hell just happened.

But it doesn’t stop there. Even if you understand the whole grams-ounces-pound thing, you still have to contend with the long list of slang terms that have come and gone over the years.

In the next section, we’ll clarify the conversion between grams and ounces and introduce you to the corresponding ganja jargon.

Ganja Jargon for Measuring Weed

Source: Forum.Grasscity.com

There’s a lot of marijuana slang floating around out there. For the most part, though, it all revolves around a few choice terms. Your budtender will typically refer to their Mary Jane by the following names:

  • Dime
  • Dub
  • Eighth
  • Quarter
  • Half
  • Ounce
  • Full O (or just O)
  • Z (yes, just the letter Z)

Here’s the definition of each.

Dime & Dub

A dime bag or a dub sack of weed is stoner slang for $10- or $20-worth of weed respectively. The amount of weed you’ll actually get in exchange for $10-$20 varies wildly depending upon where in the country (or the world) you’re buying your pot.

Eighth, Quarter, Half

The terms Eighth, Quarter, and Half are slang for portions of an ounce of pot. Here are the gram-to-ounce equivalents:

  • An Eighth = 3.5 grams
  • A Quarter = 7 grams
  • A Half = 14 grams

Ounce, Full O, Z

“Ounce” isn’t a slang term, but “Full O” and “Z” certainly are! A Full O (or just O) and a Z refer to a full ounce (or 28 grams) of marijuana. An ounce is also the most marijuana that a resident of Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington can legally possess in public.

“Full O” is fairly self-explanatory (short for full ounce), but you may be wondering where in the wide weed world the term “Z” came from. As with most cannabis slang , the exact origins of the word are lost in the pot haze of time.

Most long-time stoners agree, though, that they — or their canna-forefathers (and foremothers) — used the term as a sort of code so they didn’t have to say ounce directly.

“Why couldn’t they say ounce?” you ask. Well, remember, not so long ago, weed was lumped together with a host of really nasty drugs like heroin and crack. Most of these were sold in increments that included the ounce.

So, if you were overheard asking to buy an ounce, there was a pretty good chance you were looking to score an illegal substance. Hence the need for a code word like “Z.”

But why “Z” and not “R” or “J” or something else entirely? Again, we don’t know for sure, but the consensus usually falls into one of two camps, with the second being the most common.

  1. “Z” refers to the final letter in the abbreviation for the word ounce (i.e., oz.). Sounds good, right? Still, it does seem like a bit of a stretch. The next explanation feels a lot more likely.
  2. Back in the day, we didn’t have the cool packaging we have now. A glass jar was a bit cumbersome and prone to break should a sky-high stoner drop it or fall down. To avoid this danger, buds and other marijuana products were often sold in plastic baggies. When Ziploc bags came on the market, it was only natural that cannaseurs would use them to keep their weed fresh. And by a stroke of good fortune, an ounce of marijuana would fit nicely (most of the time) in these containers. See where we’re going? So if you wanted to buy an ounce of pot, you could say, “I’d like to purchase a Ziploc baggie of your finest marijuana product, good sir.” Or you could just say, “Gimme a Z, man.” Which would you choose? Yeah, us too.

Homework

We hate homework too, but there’s a reason schools have been doling out take-home assignments since the dawn of time — it works. Practice — though it won’t make perfect — does make better. And that’s all we really care about here: improving the way we buy weed.

One of the best ways to do that — to get a grip on the marijuana metric system — is to measure amounts for yourself at home.

And when you think about it, this type of homework isn’t nearly as bad as memorizing multiplication tables (some of us still can’t remember the product of 8×7) because it involves everyone’s favorite topic: dating Mary Jane.

Plus, we actually suggest that you burn a blunt before tackling this homework and then treat yourself to a pizza when you’re done.

You might even want to incorporate weed measurements into your next toke sesh with friends. Guessing what weighs what would make an entertaining game to play before, during, and after the smoke circle.

But, hey, do what you want. There’re no hard or fast rules for this homework. You won’t even be graded. You will, however, be judged by those around you which can be the harshest grade of all.

What You’ll Need

You will need some supplies for this, so plan accordingly.

  • Food scale
  • Marijuana substitute
  • Seven bowls for separating your stash
  • Measuring spoons (we’re just using these to scoop small amounts so don’t worry about trying to convert from grams our ounces to teaspoons)

Food scales are cheap and easy to find, and you can probably find a suitable model at your local market. As a bonus, once you’re finished practicing your weed measurements, you can use the scale to weigh your food.

Be sure to purchase a model that allows you to switch between ounces and grams.

As for the marijuana substitute, we prefer oregano for its symbolic value in cannabis history and culture.

Honestly, you don’t need a marijuana substitute if you’ve got a lot of the real thing lying around. But be warned, we will be weighing out 4 ounces (¼ pound), so you’ll need at least that much to get through the assignment.

Now you see why we suggest a substitute? A quarter-pound of weed purchased all at one time will run you anywhere from $400 to $800 (check local listings). A quarter-pound of oregano purchased at your local market will run you less than $2. The choice is obvious to us.

Assignment

  1. Set your food scale to grams. If your model doesn’t offer this feature, you’re stuck with ounces. Don’t worry. We’ll make due.
  2. Reset the scale to zero by pressing “tare.”
  3. Scoop or sprinkle a small amount of plant matter (marijuana or equivalent substitute) onto the scale until you reach 0.5 grams (0.017 or 0.018 ounces). It won’t take much.
  4. Dump this amount into one of your seven bowls.
  5. Reset the scale.
  6. Add plant matter to the scale until it read 1 gram (0.035 ounces).
  7. Dump this amount into another bowl.
  8. Compare the two amounts.
  9. These are the most common gram units you’ll find in the marijuana metric system so try and get an eye for their relative size.
  10. Set your food scale to ounces.
  11. Reset to zero.
  12. Scoop plant matter onto your scale until it reads 0.125 ounces (3.5 grams).
  13. This is an eighth of weed.
  14. Dump it into another bowl.
  15. Reset your scale.
  16. Pile on enough plant matter to take the scale to 0.25 ounces (7 grams).
  17. This is a quarter (of an ounce).
  18. Dump it into another bowl.
  19. Reset your scale.
  20. Measure out 0.5 ounces (14 grams).
  21. Dump it into your fifth bowl.
  22. Reset your scale.
  23. Measure out 1.0 ounces (28 grams).
  24. This is, as you might guess, an ounce, an “O”, or a “Z”.
  25. Dump that into your sixth bowl.
  26. Reset your scale.
  27. Now, just for fun, measure out 2.0 ounces (56 grams or ¼ pound).
  28. Dump that into your seventh bowl.
  29. Stand back and visually compare each amount.
  30. Repeat the process for even more practice.

Being able to visually recognize the general size of a pile of weed — even if it’s not exact — makes buying it even easier.

When you think you’ve got the size of each pile in your head, try this test:

  1. Weigh one of your bowls on the scale.
  2. Remove the bowl and reset the scale.
  3. Pick an amount of weed you want to try to measure (let’s say, an eighth of an ounce).
  4. Pour what you think is that amount into the bowl.
  5. Place the bowl on the scale.
  6. Subtract the weight of the bowl from the new reading.
  7. That number is how much plant matter is in the bowl.

Did you get close to the number you were trying to measure? Try it again with another amount.

Endo-Weed Economics

Asking for a dime usually means you are asking for $10-worth of cannabis . This amount of cannabis (often 0.5g) is usually just enough weed to roll into a decent-sized joint. That said, it is becoming increasingly rare to find so-called “ dime-bag dealers ” who will sell such a small amount of sinsemilla .

Source: Quickmeme.com

Asking for a dub usually means you are asking for a full gram of cannabis. One gram of weed is what you’ll typically find in a single blunt or cigar leaf joint. You can expect to pay $20 for a dub of weed in major cities in the Midwest and along the eastern seaboard (Chicago all the way to Boston).

However, Harrison Tesoura Schultz, co-founder of Occupy Weed Street, has paid up to $50 for a single gram of pot from delivery services in New York City.

Anything less than 1.5 grams for $20 was a rip off in Oregon prior to July 8, 2014, when recreational cannabis became available for sale. Now it’s common to get 3.5 grams or “an eighth” of high-quality cannabis for $20 in Oregon.

The cost of an ounce of weed will vary widely according to the quality and popularity of the strain , of course. However, regulating and taxing marijuana drives down the price of pot and helps cannabis consumers save lots of money.

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 .

The price for an ounce of pot is the basis of the prices for the other common portions of weed that are typically sold. For example, the best deal you’ll find in New York City (a.k.a. the marijuana arrest capital of the world) is $45 for an eighth of an ounce ($360 divided by 8).

You can purchase the same amount of high-quality cannabis for as little as $25 (or less) in certain cities in Oregon.

Purchasing a small electronic scale is the best way to make sure that you’re not paying more than you should be for pot. It’s also the most accurate way to measure your doses of medicinal marijuana. You can get a sense of how much you can expect to pay for pot in your part of the world from priceofweed.com, a global database of crowdsourced cannabis prices.

We highly recommend reporting any really good (and really bad) deals you get on your medicine to that same website. This will help control the market and make the average price of marijuana more affordable.

Cannabis Concentrate Measurements

It’s typical to produce about two to six grams of dabs or butane hash oil ( wax ) from a full ounce, or 28 grams, of ganja. Vaporizable cannabis concentrates can cost anywhere between $20 (if you’re lucky) up to $100 per gram.

An ounce of pot will also produce about three to four grams of the same cannabis oil that Rick Simpson used to save himself and thousands of other medical marijuana patients from terminal cancer.

Colorado residents can buy Rick Simpson oil for $25 dollars a gram from legal dispensaries, such as Caregivers for Life.

You can make way more cannabutter than you would ever want to eat in a single weed edible serving with an ounce of weed depending on how well you can make it.

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.

An eighth of an ounce of high-quality cannabis produces about 30-34 doses of marijuana tincture if you make it yourself, and a small bottle of about 100 drops costs around $20 dollars.

Making the Marijuana Math Make Sense

Source: Quickmeme.com

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.

It is entirely possible that Snoop has smoked nearly an entire ton of cannabis over the course of his life if we take his estimate as accurate.

Source: Tubmlr.com

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:

  • 1 ounce of weed = 28 grams

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.

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.

Make sure to support legalization efforts on behalf of groups such as NORML and the Marijuana Policy Project if you want to help make marijuana increasingly more affordable for yourself and your community.

How Much Is A Dime of Weed? + Dub Sacks and Nickel Bags

The term ‘dime bag’ has been around for decades. Put very simply, a dime bag is $10 worth of weed. This term of measurement for cannabis is slowly going away.

The common way to measure weed is by weight. That is, you would sell a gram for a certain amount. Then you have eighths and quarters and so on. If you’re not familiar with weed weights then check out one of my other posts: Marijuana Weight: Grams, Quarters, and Ounces. Oh my!

But, some people still use the term dime, as well as, nickel and dub so I’ll break it all down for you below.

How Many Grams in a Dime Bag?

Here’s where things get fishy, and why people are using the dime bag less and less. A dime bag is a set dollar amount of weed and no set weight. This means the amount you get is going to weigh differently between sellers. Of course, the quality is going to greatly affect how much you get. Depending on where you are a dime bag will typically have between .5-1 grams. Of course, you could have a better hookup that gives you a bit more. Like I said, it’s going to vary greatly.

Dime Bag Size

The traditional dime bags are the mini ziplock-style bags like the one shown in the cover photo of this article. Sometimes the bags will display a printed design. The size of these bags usually range between 1-1.5 inches on each side, but you can get bags in every size imaginable. You can buy these bags on Amazon for pretty cheap.

With that said, it does not have to actually be a mini ziplock to be a dime bag. If you’re buying $10 of weed then it’s a dime no matter if it’s in a sandwich bag or anything else.

Nickel Bag

A nickel bag (we always used to call them ‘nicks’) is $5 worth of weed. This is the absolute smallest amount that anyone would sell you. Most often it’s going to be low-grade because $5 worth of high-grade would only be .25 grams or so. Usually, you’re going to get half a gram of low-quality stuff. It’s typically the same size bag as a dime with half the amount of cannabis inside, however, sometimes you will see even smaller bags used for nicks.

Dub Sack

A dub sack is $20 worth of weed. The term dub was originally used to describe 20-inch rims. Again, the amount will vary depending on quality n’ such, but you’ll probably get anywhere from 1-3 grams. Of course, the size of a dub bag may be slightly larger than a dime bag – 2 inch x 2 inch is a common size.

Conclusion

Like I said before, the terms nickel, dime, and dub are becoming antiquated. Using actual weights like grams and ounces lets you know exactly what you’re getting. Of course, there are still plenty of people who still use the term dime so it’s good to know.

What do you think? Do you still know people who use dimes instead of grams? Let me know in the comment section below.

I know folks who still sell dime bags and the weed is pretty good. The problem is you hardly get enough to roll a joint. Me I don’t like wasting money or keep going back so I tend to buy a half Oz at a time. Those who can’t afford that much at one time rely on the dime bags…

In my city Reggie tends to run for about 10/g, so it’s not THAT weird to hear dime and dub, but they’re pretty much shorthand for weight. With my reggie guy I tell him a dollar amount, with my med guy I usually just get a zip since they don’t come in less than q’s anyhow.

Its really simple math okay look.
Good weed
#1=.5 is 10$
#2=1.0 is 20$
#3=1.5 is 30$
#4=3.5 is 35 to 40$
#5=7.0 is 70$
#6=14.0 is 135 to 140
#7=28.0 is 285 to 300
#8= 224gs is 600 to 800

Your fucking crazy

28.0 is 150 to 200 bro lol

Depends on what you have and what state your in. Mweed runs different prices everybody knows that. So dont starr knocking people.

You’ve lost your mind

I paid $10 for 6.8g of Regie ( not a gram of dro). Is that good?

When what we call Reggie is sold we refer to them in the terms blunt dime or dub.
A dub is good for a 1/4oz( 7grams)
A dime is good for 1/8oz(3.5g’s)
A blunt is good for 1/16oz(1.7g’s)
At least that’s what it is in my state
For the last 15 years no matter who I have gotten it from the same rule applied

This is what i came to this site for, lol, who knew id find the answer in the comments

when i started smoking a dime bag was a 1/4 oz and a nickle was an 1/8 oz.

The fuck are u kidding 7grams for 5dollars and 14 grams for 10bucks pshhh nigguh u must be trippin

Can I get away with 7 for a nik

In England an oz of decent weed you can pay between £180/£200
Half oz you can pay from£90/110
A quarter you can pay £65/£75
Eight you can pay £35/£45
So a big difference to America
And as you know it’s not legal in Europe

Being on an island doesn’t help either.

Actually, I just did a search on the exchange rate and that’s pretty comparable to US rates in states. Like a 20% mark-up on an 8th (I tend to pay $35 for reggie, $45 for the lower end of medical grade). Not bad for being on an island.

Yeah I remember nickels and dimesand 20s all the way up the food chain lol. But I also remember they used to sell trade bags and straight out joints lol. Trade bags were half a Nick and sold for 2 to 3 bucks and were often given away for free as a sample of the weed they had. And there was also compressed weed called brick or pellet witch had a much denser weight to it . Basically weed that was pressured into a brick for smuggling purposes. It’s in between weed and hash in its characteristic. But that was over 20 to 30 years ago. I can’t imagine that it’s still around these days with pot almost finally leagal.

My first bag of weed cost 10 dollars. Only four fingers but would last a long time.

This is incorrect for many parts of Canada, we use the term Nickel or “Nick” instead of the term Quarter (7grams), and we use Dime instead of the term Half (14grams) we do use the term Half but we use it instead of the term Eighths (3.5grams)
It’s where your from initially. Hope this cleared things up

I am just getting back into smoking weed cause it is so hard to get my pain meds filled. Weed has been great for pain and anxiety. I do widh I had a scale to weigh out what I buy. I am so glad that it is legal in my state. I can have six plants anf ly wife have six which then means…wait for it………..12 plants altogether. I am going to take advantage of that.

This will definitely give away my age but in high school when I smoked pot, a Dub was equal to an ounce and cost $20.00 A Dime bag was equal to a half ounce and cost $10.00. A Nickel bag was a quarter ounce and cost $5.00. Of course, it was usually that crappy pot with lots of seeds. We didn’t know any better back then, all we knew was it was so cheap we could buy that “Nickel” bag equal to a quarter ounce and roll one really big fat joint. Life was great!

That’s actually not “old”, I’m fresh out of college and through high school we were still using those same terms for the same quantities.

Does anyone remember a lid

I remember a lid $15.00

You must be close to 60 because I remember that too lol

In terms of Reggie, here in Texas a nick is 2.5 grams a dime is 5 grams a dub is 7 grams and a half oz is 14 grams. Nobody buys dubs, at least not me.. And I feel like anyone who has adding skills wouldnt either.
As for dank, it runs an eighth is 3.5 a quad is 7 a half is 14 and an oz is 28. Pretty simple math.

In the day… What? Yeah, the day… What day? Yeah, the day. What?

A dime bag was $10 and around 2 to 3 fingers in width in the bottom of a standard sandwich size baggie. Nickel bag was $5 bucks, 1-2 fingers in the same size bag. We didn’t buy or sell by weight, usually and it was an honor system to get the finger width expected. We always looked for guys with LARGE fingers! The basic test for quantity was to use the traditional close, roll and lick to seal the baggie. Measure with fingers. Quality was to pass a doob around and enjoy!

I remember going down to Mexico and buying Keys(Kilo bricks) of Columbian Red for $180 a Key. Seriously! And seriously bad ass weed too! Do the math… 2.2 pounds for $180. About $5 bucks an ounce! Go figure!

Smoke ’em if ya got ’em!

Yes! I was trying to explain the whole finger system to someone and they just couldn’t believe it ! That’s how we did back then.

Derrick is fukd up on his price and calculation on price and size a quarter oz for a dime he is the police

This is incorrect for many parts of Canada, we use the term Nickel or “Nick” instead of the term Quarter (7grams), and we use Dime instead of the term Half (14grams) we do use the term Half but we use it instead of the term Eighths (3.5grams)
It’s where your from initially. Hope this cleared things up

It’s been a little over a decade so recently when I went to purchase I asked for a dub and young man looked at me like I was Crazy lol I learned fast.

Your etymology of “dub” is wrong. The term dub, to describe a “double dime” out dates the advent of 20 inch rims potentially by decades. 20 inch rims were called dubs after “dub sacks”, not the other way around.

So, how many 2.4gm bags do you get from a 28gm oz

So I live in little ol NZ and things get pretty reaped here..

1. Anywhere from .8 -1.2grm $20
2. From 2.2 – 3.5grm $50
3. From 5 – 6 gem $100
4. 1/4 from $70- 100
5 1/2 from $130- $200
6 Holes are anywhere from $250 for Bush or over $400 for filth.. also depends what time of year etc… most of the time it’s dry as a bone as other drugs are staring to take over our country..

All you are idiots. I live in Long Beach ca my street source beats all the competition

Lmmfao you cats smoking garbage! Who the hell puts seven grams in a blunt. Waste of weed smoking garbage if you need to burn that much flower.

Nobody “needs” to roll 7gs into a blunt, but if you do you’ll never see weed the same way

This is incorrect for many parts of Canada, we use the term Nickel or “Nick” instead of the term Quarter (7grams), and we use Dime instead of the term Half (14grams) we do use the term Half but we use it instead of the term Eighths (3.5grams).

FYI: a “dub” didn’t start as a 20″ rim. $10 is a “sawbuck,” and $20 is a “double sawbuck,” aka a “double saw,” aka a “dub”. 😉

Nz.
1-2grams $20 is called a tinny, dinger, foil, so many names ..

3-5gram is a 50bag $50

Half ounce 16grams is upwards of $90 usually $180 for good shit

Full Ounce 32grams dreggs are $180 and upwards of $400 for the best weather and grade dependant, if there’s none round after raid season I’ve heard of people paying $800 for an O. Suppose depends on who you know and your whereabouts.

To you kiddies ridiculing folks referencing prices you are unable to wrap your little minds around, please allow me to set you straight.

I haven’t touched The Evil Weed in a half century. No need, no desire, no interest, and certainly disinclined to get a criminal record like too many of my friends ended up with.

But, in two days, it becomes legal in my state, and I am seriously considering trying to obtain some, because my life consists of pretty much darn little else but pain, courtesy of a doped up bitch that nearly killed me as I sat in my car, stopped behind the car in front of me. Many surgeries later — of the type where I had to sign a disclaimer that I understood I may die or become paraplegic or quadraplegic — with opiate pain meds no longer able to control the pain — my doctor suggested I try this.

Now, let’s crank the time machine back to 1967, “The Summer of Love” — the going rate for a kilo of grass was $300. A nickel bag was a sandwich bag that was nearly half full — and it cost $5. But, it was usually free. A group of friends would pass the joint. Someone always had something to roll.

But, that was then, and this is now, and I can’t wrap MY mind around the prices you folks are willing to pay to get high. Even if I wanted to, it just wouldn’t be worth that kind of money to me. I’d rather put my $$$ into rare coins, or just generic silver bullion rounds or bars. That would give me more long term happiness than a very transient bit of euphoria.

As I said, I’m looking for pain relief, not euphoria, and there’s no way I could pay those kind of prices, and surprise surprise, Blue Cross won’t cover the expense. So, I’m going to have to look into finding some seeds and growing. We’re allowed all of 12 plants per household, plus 10 Oz kept under lock and key, and up to 2.5 oz we can keep in our pocket and take anywhere we please.

And if you think I’m a STUPID old fart for worrying about getting busted, well… I’ve managed to stay out of prison, unlike many others — simply by avoiding getting on the wrong side of Mr. Law. I may not agree with the laws, but I sure as hell don’t want to find myself under their heels. It all comes down to how much you value your freedom — and, if it’s worth more — or less — than a few lapses into euporia.

So- your life is naught but pain, and yet, you’re claiming spending your money to buy metal will bring you happiness?
Interesting.

In this article, I talk about dime bags, nicks, and dubs. How much is a dime of weed? How big is a dime bag? I'll cover everything you need to know.
