I honestly didn’t realize that taxes on marijuana were so high.
I’ve never lived in a place 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 suggested trying recreational marijuana. We were in Albuquerque, New Mexico and I didn’t have my family or the kids with me. It was honestly the perfect time for me to try recreational marijuana products without having my wife go dessert. My friends and I got an Uber and we went to a marijuana dispensary in the city of Albuquerque. The marijuana dispensary had excellent prices on tinctures, flower, edibles, and other marijuana products. My friends and I got several different items and took them back to our hotel. I knew the sales tax was higher than the state where I live, but the taxes on marijuana were about 30%. I spent a fortune 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 we 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 don’t know why more people don’t use recreational marijuana products. It really made me feel very calm and relaxed and I had a lot of fun.
