Is your favorite dispensary on the up and up? Find out with these helpful tips
Unless you have been living under a rock then you've heard the news. Cannabis in California has gone legal! While the state has had non-profit collectives, or dispensaries in operation since 2003 the recent introduction of Prop 64 has opened the floodgates. With all these choices available you need to make sure you are in the best one for your needs.
Cannabis Consumption on the Premises
While Cannabis is legal that doesn't mean you're free to just light up a joint wherever you want. Open consumption of cannabis is still against the law. If you drive into the parking lot and smell the unmistakable scent of smoked marijuana then turn around, that's a huge red flag!
They Don't Check Your ID
"A little smoke never hurt anyone" you think to yourself as you decidedly ignore the first bit of advice and park your car. You open the door and immediately get ushered into the budroom. But not so fast! Cannabis is only available to purchase if your are at least 21 years old at a recreational dispensary, or 18 years old at a medicinal dispensary.
No BCC License Displayed
Operating a dispensary is legal in California, but only with a license from the Bureau of Cannabis Control. So if the dispensary you're in is legal they should be displaying their license! Don't be afraid to ask either!
The Budtenders Don't Know ANYTHING
"Where was this grown?"
"What's the THC potency on that OG Kush?"
"Not sure, but it's fire"
The real question you should be asking is "Why are you there, and not here at Ramona Cannabis Company?"
Cannabis is an amazing plant with more uses being discovered every day. Making sure you are getting your cannabis from a knowledgeable and reliable source should be a priority.
They Don't Let You See the Buds
With all the cannabis coming prepackaged in jars ahead of time it can be a challenge to find a shop that will let you see the buds before you buy. But who wants a blind taste test? If the dispensary you are in isn't willing to crack open a jar for you we advise cracking open the door and walking out.
