My girlfriend and I went on vacation and we happen to be in a state with legal recreational marijuana sales.
It was my first time ever going to a state with legal recreational marijuana sales and I thought it would be a lot of fun to go to the place and check out the selection.
My girlfriend does not regularly use recreational marijuana, but I usually smoke a bowl every single night before I go to bed. Marijuana helps make me feel more relaxed and it takes away some of the anxiety and worry that I naturally have. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder. It makes me feel scared and out of control frequently. Marijuana always helps me relax before bedtime so I don’t spend two or three hours thinking about everything in my head instead of going right to sleep. When my girlfriend and I were in the state with recreational marijuana sales, we went to a dispensary to check things out. One thing that we noticed was that the prices on the marijuana products did not include taxes. Taxes were a lot higher than I thought they were going to be. I’ve never purchased recreational marijuana, so I didn’t know there were state, local, and excise taxes on every purchase. The taxes add up to about 35% on the dollar. When I purchased $100 worth of marijuana products, I expected to pay about $7 worth of taxes, because that’s how much I would normally pay on a purchase of that amount. I was floored by the price after I found out that the taxes on recreational marijuana were so incredibly high.
