I wanted to know if there is a difference between medical and recreational marijuana? I asked the budtender at the marijuana dispensary, and he shrugged.
He said he didn’t think there was a difference, except in price.
There was a sales tax applied to recreational marijuana that was more than double what regular sales tax was. Other than the amount of marijuana was less for medical marijuana than recreational marijuana, they all came from the same counters. If I purchased recreational marijuana, I could get gummies and other edibles, but not if I was purchasing medical marijuana. I decided to stick with my medical marijuana. I got the same marijuana products, and it was cheaper. When I got home, I told my wife I had picked up the medical marijuana order on the way home from work. She came out and asked what they said about recreational marijuana. I told everything I learned from the budtender, and she figured out the cost. Even though we had to pay the state to get the medical card, it was still cheaper than buying recreational marijuana. Had it been the same price, we would have been buying recreational marijuana instead of medical marijuana. She grinned and asked if we could make our own gummies and brownies. I knew it was illegal to make gummies and brownies at home, but now that there was recreational marijuana available, I wanted to look up the laws. Even though we had medical marijuana, we may now be able to make some goodies. It was going to take some research, but even if we could, I wasn’t sure we wanted to go through that much trouble.
