For a great many years I always got my weed through Ben. At first he was just my dealer, but over time we became friends, as well. This is a college town, so there is a very high turnover rate, in both buyers and sellers of cannabis. Ben was the most consistent dealer I ever had, and I was his most loyal customer. We were so close that he even took a check for my purchase one time! Well, now Ben and I are fighting, and it is all because of the new cannabis dispensary that opened up. I don’t want to be rude, but there is just no way Ben can compete with the amazing variety of cannabis products they have. His prices are cheaper than the cannabis dispensary, but how important is the cost in the grand scheme of things? Is it worth saving a few bucks to sacrifice quality and keep smoking Ben’s stuff instead of getting the superior cannabis at the dispensary? I decided to split the difference, and spend half my cannabis budget with Ben and half of it at the dispensary. I did that one time, just the once, and realized that the cannabis dispensary products were so far superior it wasn’t even close! The stuff I got at the cannabis dispensary made Ben’s stuff taste like garbage, and got me higher than I had been in a long time. I truly hope that Ben and I can keep being friends and getting high together, but I have to stop buying cannabis from it. It just isn’t worth it!
