Edibles at all the shops I’ve been in are still quite expensive. I dont see signs that they will undercut the legal products yet

The real story is that law enforcement in NYC is so capricious and functionally useless that anything is legal always unless police randomly decide they don’t like you… for any reasons, be it racism, or whatnot.

They’re not going to be able to put this genie back in the bottle. The city and the state really fucked this up royally.
