The owner of Empire Cannabis is a woman whose husband and son have both been incarcerated on marijuana charges; this is one of the reasons she feels okay with what she is doing.I sincerely hope all the line jumpers get run out of town on rails.
Glad licenses are going to ex-cons first.
I think their lower shelf could maybe be fresher, but it is still potent bud at a reasonable price.How's the quality & prices of their flower?
That's how they are in California, beautiful boutiques. It feels like walking into Tiffany's.I think it’s great that folks are taking whatever risk that may be involved to push the now legal laws into actual stores or dispensaries in NY. What I think is obscene, is how every state tries to reinvent the wheel.
“We have to create committees, examine the law, etc,”.
I understand there are legal issues on the old books, but where new money is involved, you see a bunch of new local government jobs. Ok, that’s time consuming.... if any of these state government officials had any smarts, most of the research has already been done the past few years in states that have been legalized quite awhile ago, why not communicate and share ideas with those that have already done this time consuming work.
I promise not to rant about this forever, as I’m already certain these idiot politicians will tax the shit out of everything they may offer, making the lower street prices I already pay, even more attractive. My dream was to see NYC dispensaries like the ones I see online, that are like sleek Apple stores, but with reasonable prices. Guaranteed, they will screw this up......
People are trusting their cannabis consumption to completely unqualified kids who mostly man these shops.Are you also angry at the Native American Tribes in NY State, who are allowing stores under their own, sovereign sets of regulation?
Cannabis was prohibited by law and by taboo for a couple of generations, so now all of this "legalization" should be touted as normal? Regulating and taxing the crap out of a weed? C'mon, open up a little.
Mhm, looking forward to those fees & regs kicking in, bringing a reality check to the shops. That's probably more like a $325 ounce come 4th quarter 2022. Can't come soon enough."Mixed Light", which at oz level is currently $255.
Yeah well, it ain't her though is it? Might not qualify for kid gloves treatment....The owner of Empire Cannabis is a woman whose husband and son have both been incarcerated on marijuana charges
Yeah, but they have licenses and regulations for other aspects of what they do, right? And size matters too. Micro and small businesses have a lower barrier to entry.Hey, when you buy tomatoes at a farm stand, there is no government stamp on them.
This is exactly what they have been doing. 100%if any of these state government officials had any smarts, most of the research has already been done the past few years in states that have been legalized quite awhile ago, why not communicate and share ideas with those that have already done this time consuming work.
Is that Ocean Beach? That's not the deck of Maguires, is it?I can't wait for the warm weather.
Here's a nice pre-pandemic summer sunset out on Fire Island.
If I recall, you tended toward the higher shelf than I.Paying a visit to Empire in the next week or so ... any recent purchased strain recommendations for me?
You nailed it!Is that Ocean Beach? That's not the deck of Maguires, is it?
Thanks my friend ... will get an eighth of higher end (maybe red velvet) but also looking to mix an oz of quarters of some lower priced strains. Thanks again for the great salad suggestions and have a great trip.If I recall, you tended toward the higher shelf than I.
The price structure is based on how it was grown, so tiers are Full Term (outdoor), Greenhouse, Mixed Light, Electric Light, then something called Diamond Cut which is truly ridiculously priced, near 80/eighth.
If you buy an ounce you get discount and you get to mix & match from within that tier.
I've quite enjoyed things from the Mixed Light and even some from the Greenhouse tiers. 'Salads' are working the best for me.
Going away for two days, so last night I ground up a jar of (combined); Granddaddy Purple, Ice Cream Cake, Cookies& Cream, Pot Of Gold, Bumble Bee Breath, Cookie Milk and I think 2 others (?)
