I thought Pot Smokers were just supposed to go with the flow man

I think that's generally true about everything other than procuring pot.

Seriously though, I don't think regular pot smokers are affected by this at all. From the ones I know, most of them are just buying it from their old suppliers.

The ones I know have just moved their plants from the back garage porch window, because they get more sunlight there.

Ding Ding Ding.... OCS prices are ridiculous....
I've never bought for less than $10/g so I really don't think the prices are bad tbh.

Yeah, neither did I. When I was a regular smoker I paid 40 for a half-quarter, 70 for a quarter, 120 for a half-ounce and 220 for an ounce. Obviously on the upper end there the price is significantly below 10 a gram but drug dealers had incentive to offer discounts for larger purchases. The OCS, like the LCBO, actually have a mandate not to encourage use so they won't offer real discounts for buying in bulk.

Meanwhile at OCS you can get fairly high THC strains for as low as 28 bucks for the half-quarter. If anyone was paying much less than that pre-legalization I'd really question the quality of what they were buying.

Day 9: After noticing an oddity on my credit card statement(last night my OCS charge had disappeared, then this morning it was there again only now registered as having taken place on the 23rd) I tried to call their customer support line only to get a pre-recorded message telling me that due to "circumstances beyond their control" they aren't able to receive calls.

The Saga continues, Wu-Tang.

Huh, I've been getting good stuff (OG Kush, Sour Diesel, etc...) for $6-$6.50/g for years...

I did put in an order at OCS, last Thursday, for shits and giggles.....

Still no shipped email (it said 1 - 5 days).
I emailed the 'HelloOCS' email, no replies.
I called the Customer Service line and it tells you to hang up, they can't take any more calls right now...

What a fiasco.
But I knew they would mess this up anyways.

$6.50 a gram? Heck I paid more for that 20 years ago.

In a way though, that's what's so interesting about the legalization process though. If you or I buy a bottle of Johnny Walker Black we can be fairly sure that we're getting more or less the same thing. Pot isn't, and has never been, like that. Look at the OCS page for instance, they give the THC and CBD contents in wide ranges in a way they'd never do for alcohol content. That's because plants aren't really an exact science.

When you or I would buy pot from an illicit source we wouldn't know THC contents. Even assuming that the names of those strains are legitimate, and I've had pretty large-scale dealers tell me that "famous" strains were essentially just easily forged brand-names, I don't know what sort of conditions your stuff was grown in or the ultimate quality thereof.

Day 10:

https://toronto.citynews.ca/2018/10/25/why-is-your-pot-delivery-so-delayed/

Quote
Well we now have an answer from Ontario minister of finance, Vic Fedeli, as to why it is taking so long for the OCS to ship its pot products.

“The criminals lied to us,” Fedeli told members of the media at Queen’s Park Thursday.

“Our assumptions, of course, were based on all illegal sales”

“All of the cannabis store assumptions were made… based on illegal data, illegal information from illegal sales.. and guess what, the criminals lied to us, they did not properly report their sales, if you can imagine that happening, so our assumptions of course were based on all illegal sales.”

"Yes, illegal drug dealers? We'd like to ask just how frequently you committed your crimes...not that often you say? Well, that's good."

These people are so stupid I wonder how they manage to make it out of the house and somehow they're running the province.

The Ontario Minister of Finance said that?!?! An unbelievably stupid thing to say.

I had to read his Wiki after a quote like that. Surprisingly, quite an impressive career. Maybe he had a stroke?

He is good at this. He reinforced the importance of illegal drug selling, which is where he earns his real income ;)
