A lot of the fast food restaurants in my area are not good.
- I don’t want soggy french fries and burgers that taste like they’ve been sitting in a warmer for three hours before hitting my plate.
And since inflation has increased the cost of everything these days, even cheaply made fast food is starting to become expensive. I remember when I could get a handful of products for a single dollar at fast food restaurants, but most of the “dollar menus” have been replaced with “value menus” with items no cheaper than $2-$3 at the lowest. I know that the pandemic had one of the biggest effects on inflation rates because of the continual disruption in supply lines from one side of the globe to the other. If demand stays the same while there’s a drop in supply, prices naturally increase. It’s one of the most basic facts about macroeconomics. However, the cannabis industry in my state has seen a reverse effect with supply increasing faster than demand. Now we actually have quality cannabis companies in this state that are producing products to be proud of if you’re a grower working for one of those retailers. I’m happy that a quality cannabis dispensary just opened up near my house. Now I have a much wider selection of marijuana products than ever before. I can get an eighth of cannabis flower buds for as little as $20 some days and it’s actually quality marijuana. A year ago you’d only find subpar cannabis for prices that low, but several of the poorly performing cannabis companies have been bought out by bigger companies coming in from out of state.
