With recreational marijuana, I had many more choices of the form of marijuana I could use.
When I heard recreational marijuana had passed a law, I was surprised. My question now is, do I want medical marijuana or recreational marijuana? I had been using medical marijuana for almost several years now, plus it had been helping with our anxieties. The only thing I didn’t care about about medical marijuana was that I was limited to what marijuana products I could purchase. I wanted gummies plus other fun edibles to use. Medical marijuana provided me a choice of RSOs, ointments, creams, pills, or marijuana products that could be used in vape pens, since smoking wasn’t legal medical marijuana, I could not even purchase a pre roll joint. With recreational marijuana, I had many more choices of the form of marijuana I could use. When I saw the pricing plus how strenuous was put on recreational marijuana, I was taken aback, but even if you were purchasing recreational marijuana that was the same as the medical marijuana you used, it was more luxurious, and our state charged 6% sales tax, but with recreational marijuana, that 6% turned into almost 20% because of added recreational taxes plus excise taxes. I wasn’t sure if I should switch to recreational taxes just to save on the cost of the medical marijuana ID card! Although it was easier to purchase recreational marijuana, the price of medical marijuana made it more cost effective for me plus many other people. My fiance asked what I was going to do when recreational marijuana was finally put on sale. I told her I already had our medical marijuana ID card, plus I would make a decision when it came time to renew it.
