Coronavirus Creates Weed Hoarders

VICE: While many Canadians have been frantically buying toilet paper and beans in preparation for coronavirus-related lockdown, Eli stocked up on cannabis. But he didn’t just grab a couple of oun ces—he purchased 2 pounds of weed for $2,700 from a grower friend, in addition to the half pound he had lying around the house. That’s enough for more than 3,500 joints—a joint a day for nine-and-a-half years. “I’m a weed hoarder,” said Eli, a 40-something who lives in a small B.C. town where he runs a contracting business. “I love weed and don’t want to run out and I don’t want to worry about rationing.”

The first rule about weed-hoarding: hoard your weed in glass jars. Hoarding weed is a little less crazy than hoarding toilet paper. But please if you’re going to hoard a very perishable item like weed: hoard it the right way.

Store your bud somewhere cold (like a fridge). But seal it first. Whether in tupperwear or a glass jar (go glass when you can), make sure its as air tight as possible. That’s really all there is to it.

There’s of course a much easier solution: just grow your own. Order a tent online, set up a few lights, pop a few seeds, and read some online tutorials.
