How much does an ounce cost these days?

Asking for a friend.

I have a ritchey 120 mm I can trade if interested.

With my stem slammed all the way down the 120mm feels a little too long. Want to try a shorter one before I have the steerer tube cut.

If you donít have one by mid-month I might have one for you.

I'm lucky I survived.

They don't use real money anymore. It's by the gram now. 28 grams to an ounces, so......

I think rarely got carded as a teenager in Philly. Word spread around the Ďhood about the easiest places to get served takeout beer. Wine and hard alcohol were sales were (and still mostly are) through the state, so that was more difficult.

Here, beer and wine sales take one license and hard liquor a different, more expensive license. Some restaurants serve "wine cocktails" which have the same alcohol as the regular cocktail except they are mixed with wine instead of liquor.

When I was in Missouri alcohol was sold in "package stores". These had no signage about alcohol and sold only alcoholic beverages. No snacks, no cigarettes, nothing.

When I was a ute and ounce was $10 and they usually put in extra. A gram of hash was also $10.
The weed now is so much stronger and I think an ounce is $400-$600 but I don't really know. I had a room mate who smoked it all day every day unless he ran out.

Haven’t ever heard of a drive up window at a bar or liquor store in Texas in the 40 years I’ve been here. Open containers in the passenger compartment has always been a big no-no.

Now, Louisiana until about the late 80s was a whole nutha thing.

In NYC in the 70s, we bought alcohol and drank in bars all through High School. I donít recall being carded once.

MoAlpha 08-06-21 07:13 PM

Just ordered a set of cycling specific prescription glasses, the kind with the rim under the lenses. Not very expensive, even with progressive lenses.

It's for running FD cables along your top tube BITD when we only had bottom pull front derailleurs.

No drivethrough windows at bars, but We have drive thru liquor stores here. We had em in Wyoming too!

I always heard tales of New Orleans Drive thru daiquiris, and they'd put a little piece of Scotch tape over the straw hole so they could call it a closed container.

Im thinking about going goggles for the winter time. Not sure how else to prevent my thermal face mask from fogging my glasses.

I have that problem too, but I find goggles too hot for cycling.

Maybe I was wrong about the state. It was a long time ago.
