Inflation is ever-present, and it never stops, slowly driving up the cost of living in increments, over weeks plus years; but you always hear seasoned people say “back in my day bread only cost a quarter” plus so on, but now I am seasoned enough to see it in action myself.
I really do remember when gasoline was only a dollar fifty a gallon, plus a pack of smokes was two bucks, but can you imagine that in our day plus age? There are some things that seem immune from inflation, mostly because they don’t involve the government; yet twenty years ago, I was paying fifty bucks for a basket of high grade cannabis.
In all that time, the cost has barely budged, plus these afternoons I was spending as much as sixty bucks for the same size bag. The price of marijuana on the open market has consistently stayed almost exactly the same for an honestly long time. I wonder if the advent of so many government approved cannabis dispensaries is going to impact the price for almost everyone who smokes? I have observed that the local cannabis dispensaries have high retail prices then I am used to paying, but mostly that’s because they think insurance foots the bill usually, and as of yet my local company has not raised his price to match them, so I am paying the same for cannabis as I have been for years. I’m sure the government will find a way to screw it up… They always screw it up. But for right now it seems that cannabis is going to remain inflation proof!
