Plenty of pot shops offer rotating daily specials, day-of-the- week deals, or loyalty reward programs where after spending so much money, 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 (these things haven't changed since weed was legalized, people). But you can get cheaper weed for simply showing up during certain times of the day. See our pot shop happy hour favorites below.
