I truthfully did not realize that taxes on marijuana were so high! I have never lived in a arena with legal recreational marijuana, the first time I ever tried pot was when my coworkers and I were sent to the West Coast for a conference; One of my buddies recommended trying recreational marijuana… We were in Albuquerque, NM and I did not have my family or the kids with me. It was truthfully the perfect time for me to try recreational marijuana products separate from having my wife go dessert, and my friends and I got an Uber and my friend and I went to a marijuana dispensary in the town of Albuquerque. The marijuana dispensary had excellent prices on tinctures, flower, edibles, and other marijuana products. My friends and I got several unusual items and took them back to our hotel. I knew the sales tax was higher than the state where I live, however the taxes on marijuana were about 30%. I spent a luck on taxes and I only got a couple of recreational marijuana products. My friends and I went back to the hotel and the first thing that my friend and I tried was a pre-rolled marijuana joint that was infused with top shelf flower, cold water hash, and marijuana distillate. The Joint was supposed to taste like strawberries and it was not disappointing. The flavor was almost as nice as the feeling I got when I was high. I do not know why more people do not use recreational marijuana products. It certainly made me feel very calm and relaxed and I had a lot of fun.
