More people stuck at home has led to a higher demand for cannabis ... "Our checks across North America were consistent: regardless of region, cannabis purchases have accelerated," analyst Christopher Carey said in a note. "While likely on pantry loading, it's not unreasonable to think there will be some boost to per capita consumption as people stay at home longer."

Weed will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no weed.

I stocked up
I'm using massive doses of weed as a virus blocker (also hiding when not in dyalisis)... let's see how aggressive the virus gets in my sticky icky blood...
If it doesnt work then atleast I go out with a smile.

I went to the dispensary today (Tho legal in Illinois for medical and recreational use, low supplies have required the dispensary to limit sales to medical patients only) and very little product was avail. A little flower, a much reduced vape cartridge selection, and no edibles were avail. One cartridge will last me about a month, so I bought only 1, not wanting to deprive any fellow medical patients.

I heard this axiom for the first time in 1971. It is true in small doses.

It's still illegal here and due to travel restrictions it's getting scarce. Fortunately I always save the last of bag when I refill so I have a couple weeks to a month plus 1.5 vape carts so I should be good for close to 3 months.

We still go to prison if we are caught with a roach.

Stocked up on edibles @ the local pot shop just in case the state decides to shut them down.
Bought both types.

I've heard conflicting information if marijuana is an "essential service" here in California.
But if convenience stores are... well, it's not hard do the math on that one.

While you're sitting there getting high, enjoy this bit of nostalgia.

If you're old enough, you might smile.

The dispensaries are still open in California. In California, cannabis is an Essential item.

Now we can get curb side service if we want. And I can get it delivered right to my door if I want. This is just awful! I am stuck in California and amazon delivers my food and my dispensary brings the weed right to my door. And Trumpy is sending me a check! This is gonna be rough but I will try and manage somehow.

Cancel my mortgage for 3 months and we can call it a Jubilee!

Bloomberg sees California as "model" for the US.

I've posted before I expect to see the government legalizing pot and giving away free vouchers.

I mean...revolutions are hard to organize when you're high.
