CASEY: I got paid to buy weed | Local News
I also purchased six prefabricated cones made in India from French cigarette paper for $ 2.11 including sales tax.
RISE also sells more expensive marijuana consumption tools, such as electronic vaping gadgets. These strike me a bit like 21st century versions of 1980s bongs that I’m more familiar with. They go up to $ 420, no kidding.
One of the employees behind the counter told me that she worked as a pharmacy technician at Walgreens, but that she ran out at the drugstore chain. I think working at RISE is much colder, or colder, or colder (as you can see I’m still trying to get to grips with modern pot slang).
RISE’s âsellâ price for buds – $ 442 an ounce, with zero quantity discounts – can be a bit off-putting. Especially compared to some Californian outlets.
The one I found online was from a company called LA Wonderland. Its price on pre-rolled joints is 3 for $ 10. In California, ounces of weed, about the same potency as RISE, sells for as low as $ 90. But you can’t buy weed by mail order from other states. It is still illegal.
I raised the issue of pricing with the Virginia Medical Cannabis Coalition, the pro medical pot lobby group. His spokesperson asked not to be identified by name.
Virginia’s medical jars program, he argued, is only just getting started, while California legalized medical weed many years ago, and even later, the retail of recreational weed. . (Rec herb is coming to Virginia, but it can take up to three years.)
