Report From Oaksterdam: 'Scrip No Longer Needed To Buy Marijuana
In the left case was a display of neatly arranged edible dosage forms, including lollipops, Jolly Rancher-style wrapped hard candies, chocolate bars, cupcakes with green icing and sprinkles, zucchini cakes, lemon pound cakes, individually wrapped candy lozenges that the guy described as "chill pills," pumpkin bread, and packages of flat wafers in multiples of five and ten, the most medicinal-seeming product of anything in the case.
Strangely, there were no brownies. Perhaps even more strangely, there were two types of Tabasco-style hot sauce. Prices ranged from $5 to $40. The dosages ranged from 33mg THC up to 345, though the latter was for multi-dose products like loaf cakes. Nevertheless, determining appropriate dosage was still somewhat dodgy. In fact, the guy behind the counter was a little disingenuous in the advice he gave to us. The "chill pills" he described as mild actually had the largest THC concentrations of any edible product in the place, and would have taken the tops of our heads off if we'd believed him. Very funny, dude.
With no medical complaints whatsoever, we tripped down the stairs with an armload of products.
