Plenty of pot shops offer rotating daily specials, day-of-the-week deals, or loyalty reward programs where, after spending a certain amount, you get a discount. This is not about that. Just like your local bars, some pot retailers offer special discounts to lure in customers during those deader-than-usual stretches. Nothing is offered for less than what the retailer paid (because that's against the law), you must be 21 to purchase, and you can't smoke what you buy in the shop (this hasn't changed since weed was legalized here, people). But you can get cheaper weed by simply showing up during certain times of the day. Some favorites happy hours are below.
