UPDATE: Here is a list of marijuana tours and party busses.
One thing for sure, Weed Land can be expensive. Especially when there are a lack of competitors to help even out the playing field.
This week, Herbal Nation, a Seattle area recreational marijuana retail store opened its doors in Everett. And just like Cannabis City in the SODO area of Seattle, this weed shop has a limited supply and prices high enough to make your eyeballs bulge out of your face.
Can you say a $20 joint? Sure, it’s pre-rolled and yes it’s grounded up flower – not shake. But 20 bucks for a joint is a flat out price gouge! For that price, I expect that joint to be hand rolled by Seth Rogen and only using the finest papers available. Heck, I never paid more than 10 bucks for a joint of the finest quality in Amsterdam!
Need A Ride?
Call me old fashioned, but I am used to paying about two bucks to ride the city bus. Granted, the city bus doesn’t have certain privileges like the Weed Bus does (Oh, you haven’t heard of the Weed Bus? Then check it out here when it made an appearance outside the Capitol Hill Block Party).
But despite the ability to toke and ride, $25 an hour per person (as this Craigslist ad suggests) can be spendy for someone on a budget. In other words, it could cost you 100 bucks to ride the Weed Bus if you’re on it for four hours! Of course, you may be gifted some cannabis which makes the price a little more attractive.
The bottom line is, we simply don’t have a place to smoke weed legally unless we are in the comforts of our home. And I’m not even sure if a weed bus is legal, not legal, grey area or what – but at least the Weed Bus gives us another option while encouraging reform.
