The unbridled optimism, though, made me a little weary. If everyone followed Miller's example, wouldn't all those new businesses and all that VC cash create a marijuana bubble? And what about when a couple of companies make it huge and become the Mercedes or Starbucks of weed?
When I asked would happen to the little guys, or to people who wanted to run boutique stores, Miller replied they would simply get eaten up by something like the Apple Store of pot. After all, there are huge companies like Anheuser Busch InBev that swallowed up many other businesses on the way to becoming global conglomerates. Just in 2015, ABIV bought the largest independent operation in California, Heineken bought 50 percent of Lagunitas, and MillerCoors purchased most of Saint Archer Brewing. It stands to reason that the economics of the weed industry will eventually resemble those of the beer market. In Miller's vision of the future, selling marijuana won't be any different than selling DVDs or paper. Presumably that'll be nice for him and others who have gotten in on the ground floor. "Twenty years from now you won't go into a store and ask for a gram of Khalifa Kush Bubble Hash, you'll ask for a pack of it, or a box of it," Miller says.
The measurements by which it's sold will have changed. As soon as there's federal legalization, the tobacco, alcohol, and pharmaceutical industries will all get into cannabis." Add the two inevitabilities of legalization and consolidation together, and it seems unlikely that tomorrow's teens will even be afforded the choice of becoming either becoming sandwich artists or dime-bag-slinging outlaws. Perhaps they'll all be working at either the Starbucks of weed or actual Starbucks. Franciosi, the grower, says that soon most of the weed on the market will be pharmaceutical grade, and that the people with 200,000 square-foot warehouses will be forced to use pesticides and other nasty chemicals to keep up. He hopes the people who want to deal with that will be motivated to buy his stuff, which he likened to small-batch whiskey. But he also thinks the black market will probably remain an option for the foreseeable future. "The price for drug dealers is $50 a quarter, no matter what," he says. It's like, 'Yeah, good job, you got some for $9 a gram, and this other guy paid $17,' but you compare the two, and one's some smushed-up stuff that looks like it's been in your pocket. Still, the people that I know who are local and have been here for a long time in Colorado say the store prices can't ever compete with the underground." Sell Marijuana. Coming soon… the secrets and the formation of it and all it’s games. The biggest news on the game coming up, stick around folks… Before we start, go ahead and buy the DVD, how to make money selling drugs. A drug deal is a transaction, just like any other transaction where you buy a snickers or a pack of cigarettes, it’s an exchange. And the easier, smoother and faster that exchange happens, with less hassle, the better it is for all parties. Therefore, it’s important to remember, that as a drug dealer you’re competing with others dealers in terms of discretion, secrecy and speed and ease of the deal, keep that in mind. In our scenario, with weed, your customer base are the people who buy weed from you, time and time again. You could make a one time drug deal with a person you don’t know occasionally, but by the far, almost all your money should come from your customer base. For safety reasons, the customer base should consist of friends that wouldn’t snitch you out and preferably don’t like the police. This applies to all drugs and even, all businesses. The customer base does not include employees who sell for you, bribed police on your side or your bodyguards. It takes a while to build a customer base, but it starts with you. It takes time to develop devoted customer and you need to be a reliable dealer. If you’re wondering where to find a customer base, that starts with you. The best and easiest way, is of course through work. Shitty jobs, like restaurants in particular, or other low income establishments are prime for targets, people who smoke weed all the time or do harder drugs.
The other scene is the party scene, bars, clubs and house parties are where people sell harder drugs. Another scene to contend is fellow drug dealers, someone who snorts coke and sells it might smoke weed from time to time and will ask for it. The last of course, are colleges, universities, high schools, places where the young are, tend to be places where people want to do drugs. Always have a reserve of weed, so if a customer calls at any time, you’ll be able to supply 24/7. Careful not to ride around with it and never carry more on you than you intend to sell or smoke. Don’t carry money on you or rubber bands and unless some is stingy, don’t bring a scale. If your selling them schawg (shitty marijuana), then tell your customers and charge accordingly. If your customer complains, listen attentively and don’t argue. For example; if a customer claims, that you shorted them… then just give the customer what they say you owe them, even if your sure you didn’t scam them.
This is part of building brand loyalty, and you, as a drug dealer, are a brand. You sell your product but you act as the customer service of oyur agency.
