I have personally always appreciated knowing the cost of zona T's and that the price will be consistent no matter the market. is that the joke? is there a joke? what is laughter?
Five for Atlanta.
Commentary on inner city food deserts and the increased cost for lower quality food it forces on the poorest people in American society?

Arizona Tea is considered a soft drink here in Florida and carries a 7 1/2 cent sales tax so you pay $1.07 at the register.
I do know a few places that charge more than 99 cents and the tax goes up accordingly. Their shelves are stocked with junk food & cheap booze and their coolers are packed with beer. All their prices are obscenely inflated. They do a booming business in scratch-off lottery tickets.
These same shitty little convenience stores also sell glass pipes and have thick bars on their windows. The windows are also usually covered by advertising posters.
There are fewer such stores these days, though. They were dealt a blow a few years back when there was a crackdown on shit like synthetic marijuana and Sippin' Syrup. And now Walmart has built a lot of "Neighborhood Markets" around the city with cheaper prices on booze and junk food.
Around where I live, it's the chain convenience stores you can look to for criminally inflated prices. The Indian owned convenience stores usually have better prices, even if they do always reek of incense and sell certain shady products.
Another advantage of the shady bodega is the beer selection. At Circle K, you're only going to find maybe 6 (if you're lucky) different regional microbrews, and only in 6-packs that cost $17. Mostly though, they carry big brands and their selection of singles is mainly limited to fruity malt beverages.
At the Indian place, they'll have a whole cooler section of local stuff in 750mL bottles, sometimes things you've never seen before.
Ha! First (and only) time I did synthetic I smoked DMT too; pretty sure it made the trip longer - it's usually about 8 minutes for me and this was more like an hour - but otherwise worthless as smoking St. Johns Wort or Salvia. I guess I'm pretty fortunate to be able to walk half a block down the street in Portland Oregon and buy some pure indica shit, find a cop if I want to and smoke a swisher right in front of them..
uh.. if I wanted to anyway..

Yeah, apparently that's what they call it. I'm not sure what in Hell it really was. They used to sell it behind the counter in little bags about the size of vending machine peanut packs.
A lot of them had "kush" in the name. The one that blew my mind was named "Scooby Snax" and had a smiling Shaggy & Scoob printed on the package.
I'm pretty sure Hanna Barbera didn't give them permission for that.
Heh.. i worked at a convenience store/coke Bodega about ten years ago in college and someone printed a picture of Bart and Millhouse in the famous "all syrup squishee" episode and colored their eyes red. And after a while we got a letter from News Corp (Fox) telling us to stop immediately.
And I dunno how familiar yall are with weed, but one of the more famous strains in recent times has been one called Girlscout Cookies and now that it's legal in Oregon and the handful of other states they've just changed it to GSC, which is fine until Georgia Science Center hears about it..

Smoked some gsc last night. Bit locky for my tastes, but I can barely tell strains apart anyway. What I'm saying is it got me too high.
Yeah I'd almost rather have a bad LSD or Psilocybin experience than be too high.. I got too high on Christmas this year but (surprise) I don't remember the strain. It was a THC of like 35 or somthing though.
(and @bac I was in the Dollar Tree the other day and found stuff ranging anywhere from 2 to 5 dollars.)
I'm kinda ashamed in you all for not knowing about synthetic marijuana.
It's been available in some form or another for over a decade, under different brand names (K-2, spice, ect ect) it's marketed as incense. the active ingredient is a chemical sprayed on various smokable dried leafy greens. The chemical (jw-13 if i remember correctly) was made originally by some chemist in the 80s or 90s commissioned by the national institute on drug abuse so they could study something thathat acted like THC in the brain only not THC because, I don't know NIDA are a bunch of fuckwits.
It's made in unregulated shady laboratories run by unregulated shady orginizations in various unregulated shady countries. Which is one of the reasons you hear news stories about a bunch of people having bad reactions to it and needing to go to the ER (I fucking refuse to say 'overdose' unless the person would die from the situation).
It's constantly getting outlawed in States and taken off shelves but they can only outlaw one specific version of the chemical so some criminal bunsun honeydew makes a redesigned version of the chemical and it's game on. wannabe dealers with no real connections but the internet order it online and sell it on the street mostly to homeless people.
It's practically unheard of in States with progressive marijuana laws.
It will get you high as fuck. Only, it's like an instant coffee version of being high as opposed to a nice French Press (the best way to drink coffee).
I like your stories of working in convenience stores. I've never worked in one of those.
Good job everyone we worked together and sucked all the fun out of this video. Maybe even to the point of negative fun
If you think "fun" and "Arizona beverages" are in any way compatible, you have never consumed one.
The price is on the can though. What more do you want?
