Legal weed is so much better. There are some that arent as good and wont buy again, but there is so much choice available.
Tired of getting handed a bag of mystery poison from the black market.
Never going back to illegal weed. All those people say they have the best weed. NOT

I'm guessing legal cannabis does far better in cities and takes a big hit in lesser populated or rural areas where the source is likely known, usually straight from the grower and cheaper.

Black Market pot is superior and cheaper, I can get a ounce for a 100 in the black market while sometimes 3.5 grams costs like 60 bucks in a dispensary.

My legal weed that I grew in my garden beats store bought and black market.
4 plants = around 10oz. this season. I’ll never get through all of that so give some away like I do my veg. from the same garden.

Those who have been using pot prior to legalization will most likely continue to get their supply from their usual supplier. Those who started after legalization will most likely get their supply from one of government stores.

Or both groups my actual grow their own.

"Mystery Poison"? I call that BS as that statement right there shows you are full of it. No pot smoker refers to weed (good or bad) as poison.

All "Legal" weed has been IRRADIATED which irrevocably alters all characteristics of the product. NO ILLEGAL weed has been irradiated. This would be the biggest difference between the two. Irradiating changes the terpene profile as, reduces terpene potency, and dried out the product. As the terpenes are what gives you the differing medical effects it seems clear that irradiating cannabis is not a good thing.
For this fact alone ILLEGAL "GREY" market weed will always be superior.

Possibly what I posted below is why illegal pot is inferior.

Samples from legitimate grows were found to be clean.

So, which one is "better"?

And adding to the topic,

“Irradiation, in cannabis and otherwise, is one of the most maligned topics of our generation,” says Tantalus Labs founder Dan Sutton.

Sutton, who previously worked in nuclear technology, defends the practice, suggesting that people fear what they don’t understand. “I think you would be hard pressed to find someone outside of nuclear physics who can actually even define what ‘radiation’ means,” he says.

Yes that's what the companies doing the irradiation would like you to think.
In order to irradiate something enough to KILL MOLD AND BACTERIA
You will also kill TERPENES and overall product quality.
Whatever synergistic effect the full-spectrum plant would have had is completely destroyed through irradiating it, I m not saying the potency is killed off entirely but it is the interaction of the various cannibinoids, terpenes etc that give the overall effect - like a complex system - and when you mess with it the entire thing breaks down.

The effects of IRRADIATING CANNABIS are VASTLY UNDERESTIMATED.

Some companies are trying other methods, but it is well known it does effect the pot.

Yes, I do know what irradiation is and the various forms involved, and have read the scientific literature on this which does acknowledge that the material is definitely and irrevocably changed and damaged through the irradiation process. They can try to diminish this with numbers like 12% terpene reduction of this type and 7% of the other; but again the natural synergistic effect of the plant is totally destroyed by doing this. It simply won't do what it what do, unirradiated.

Yeah, but why let that little fact get in the way of a good conspiracy theory.
