Inflation is ever-present… It never stops, slowly driving up the cost of living in increments, over months and years.
You always hear outdated people say “back in our afternoon bread only cost a quarter” and so on, however now I am outdated enough to see it in action myself. I particularly remember when gasoline was a dollar fifty a gallon, and a pack of smokes was two bucks… Can you imagine that in our afternoon and age? There are some things that seem immune from inflation, mostly because they don’t involve the government. Twenty years ago, I was paying fifty bucks for a tote of high grade cannabis. In all that time, the cost has barely budged, and these days I was spending as much as sixty bucks for the same size bag. The price of marijuana on the open market has stayed almost exactly the same for a honestly long time. I wonder if the advent of so many government approved cannabis dispensaries is going to impact the price for all the people who smoke? I have observed that the local cannabis dispensaries have high retail prices after that I am used to paying, however mostly that’s because they suppose insurance foots the bill usually, as of yet our local corporation has not raised her 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 as they always do, however for right now it seems that cannabis is going to remain inflation proof!
