Underground Organics? Hear me out...

Herbal Incenses / Spice / Smoke blends etc. Have been around for a while, but are just now becoming more well known around my area (Outside Tampa, Florida).

The majority of people around the area who party, smoke, experiment, or dabble in alternative entertainment have at least heard of "spice" or "k2". Especially people who get drug tested. However, most of them have no idea about legal buds, organic plants such as pure Damiana, Wild Dagga, Kratom, etc... They are not aware that there are organic products easily attainable on the internet that closely match the potency of Marijuana and are significantly cheaper.

I am 19 years old and have quite a few connections throughout the local High schools and colleges.

Business plan: Order wild dagga, damiana leaf, kratom and high quality legal bud from the most well known site ahem.. io.. . When it gets here I roughly chop and blend and add a few other spices (maybe cinnamon) to customize the color, taste, and smell and create my own product. Maybe add menthol to half or a flavoring of some sort.

I create some kind of "I-know-a-guy" story and I got my hands on some really crazy organic plants that are designed to get you high. I start selling (dealing) this smoke blend to pot heads around the area and undercut all competing prices. :devil:


My product will look better, smell better, taste better, be cheaper, and will get you high, maybe higher depending on what you smoke. Is there anything I am overlooking?

Since I altered and customized these plants into my own personal product no one can say I am flipping merchandise I ordered on the internet even though that is what I am doing, but with a little creativity and imagination...

If I begin to get a lot of business I thought I might give some samples to local smoke/head shops around the area (I know some of the managers).

Tips, pointers, opinions would really help. What do you think guys?

my honest opinion is that you should get a real job instead of feeding off peoples addictions by selling them crap

If someone did this to me I'd punch his teeth. Sell weed instead. Stop this fake shit

@BBAD A real job is something I already have. The thread is titled extra cash. And as for the feeding off peoples' addictions... Do you realize how many people in this country make money off other people's addictions (and their own...)? Especially drug addictions... Legally and Illegally. This USA some of us live in should stand for United States of Addiction. As for it being crap that is all opinion and you still need to try it before you can say! Lol

@Smokey3 I understand where you're coming from, it's just a bit risky to sell weed here in FL.

It's not fake if it gets you high and it grows from the ground. If you smoked it and it smelled, tasted, and looked good and it got you high would you still punch teeth? And you were able to pick it up instantly and the lowest prices in town without paying shipping or handing and waiting 5 days... It's not a bad deal I don't think but I appreciate the feedback! Thanks

That shit kills people, if you have no conscience and don't mind being sued, then by all means sell your soul. (If you have that)

Is this a joke? Kid, you are very ignorant. None of the things you mentioned even come close to being as good as marijuana. Smoking cinnamon? lol.

People here are making really weird replies o.O

How on Earth are NATURAL, legal highs unethical?

On top of that, he didn't mention smoking cinnamon, he mentioned using cinnamon to flavour or otherwise alter a natural, legal high.

making up a bullshit story starts the whole premise off on an unethical note.
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and — in spite of True Romance magazines — we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”
Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

True enough. This subforum is quite quiet in general I think.

If ya got a decent car/truck- -put an add on Craig s list. .The going rate to use my Subaru is 56 cents per mile(more or less)_ - -then I work out a by the hour rate. --A lot of folks lost thier DL,s or just need rides everyday- -so some weeks if I really need extra $$ ,,I get lucky and drive some sales guy around. He pays me all the gas,tolls, and then throws me 15 bucks an hour including waiting time. Sometimes I wait for the gut ...5 or 6 hours ,
I read a book or do crossword puzzles - - it works out fine.. But Im retired,,,this is only when I really need $$$, or am bored,, its a days pay>no more..no less....
