Umm. We are not retailers or service providers without an expectation that conduct in conducting their matters is apt to put them in jail. Prices have dropped substantially, in part because there are people offering the stuff to patients with their age, disability, and ability to pay considered. That plays a part in the market price. If it were not for that, the market would be higher than it is. Many retirees have substantial sources of income.

 

I am well enough into that tier, but do not consider a commodity as valuable as cannabis a candidate for wiz bang incentive offers. Competition is pretty strictly limited by the law. I mean, unless one works outside the registry, a pool of five patients seeking this limited commodity hardly requires these types of marketing. In fact, it can be said that those who do work outside the registry bring more supply to the market, which damps prices.

Uhmm

Northern Gal gives a resource of discounts available to seniors and you turn it into a legality and ethics issue concerning medical marijuana?

Even if that post had some kind of undertone

Ie... never hurts to ask 

Seems like you didn't even bother to read it before heading into a rant

Thanks for nothing , I guess?

To the OP thanks for the list

Geezoid!

 

Did you misinterpret something I shared?  I did not mention ANYTHING about cannabis and also posted under "General Conversation".

 

I was trying to help someone, somewhere save a few dollars.  That's it.  Not cannabis related, just a friendly informational post. 

 

Perhaps we live in different worlds Greg??  (not being sarcastic here) 

 

Many of the seniors (or retirees) I have had the pleasure of working with (unrelated to cannabis), do not have substantial incomes.  They are trying to stretch every dollar of the social security check they receive.  They are elated when I help them find healthcare they can afford or perhaps free/discounted prescription meds.  Some appreciate any savings they can receive.  Not all of them have always been low income and do not know programs exist.  Poor management of money, bad investments, rising costs and unforeseeable circumstances have riddled them with debt/low income and they can use all the help they can get. 

 

My compassion and knowledge extend beyond cannabis......

 

Even if it is helping save a few $$. 

 

I am sorry if my passing along savings, unrelated to cannabis somehow offended you :(

 

(To insinuate that I would suggest anyone operate outside the registry/use scandalous marketing techniques is borderline offensive.  I do my best to portray the law as it is written and interpreted.)
