Oh My: A Weed Store In Colorado Will Offer $1 Joints On Black Friday
Some local weed store owners are calling the day after Thanksgiving “Green Friday,” an appropriate title considering the array of once-in-a-lifetime (or once-per-year) offers.
But Denver’s Grass Station isn’t grabbing on to this trend just for fun, said store manager Conor Morrison.
He told Bloomberg,
We all want to be taken seriously. We want to be considered a real industry.
Joints that normally sell for $7 will be priced at $1 each.
There are only 60 of them available, however, so customers will most likely have to arrive at the store well before it opens at 8 am.
But the ones who get there the earliest or possibly camp out overnight are probably looking for an even crazier offer.
Pot shops and amateur weed dealers typically sell ounces for about $250.
But on Black Friday, 16 customers of Grass Station will get them for just $50.
Store owner Ryan Fox said,
We have really high expectations. Now we’ve got the legal means for people to give marijuana as a gift, and that’s never really been something that was feasible in the past.
The only unlimited offer will be for half-price vaporizer pens sold for $30.
Perhaps the sale strategies wouldn’t be so bold if the competition didn’t amount to over 300 pot retailers in Colorado.
Shoppers will have to rely on word of mouth or sheer convenience to choose their pot shop, however, as outdoor advertising and mass marketing of marijuana are still entirely illegal.
