Find yourself in the middle of a seemingly difficult dilemma? Let our Spacebuds consult with Mary Jane, the Force and even the darkside to ponder your situation. We’ll give you the GG (Good guy/gal) and BG (Bad Guy/Gal) perspectives to help you weigh out your options.
DEAR MARY JANE, MY PARTNER AND I SHARE THE COST FOR WEED 50/50, HOWEVER THEY SMOKE WAY MORE THAN ME. HOW DO I HANDLE THIS?
GG: “The right thing to do is often times the fair thing to do. If you are both splitting the cost of the stash, than you should be splitting the stash equally. Leaving everything all together after the joint purchase is likely the root cause of your problem. Rather than argue or split (bud)hairs about who is smoking more vs the cost etc, separate the stash upon arrival into equal but separate shares. This ensures both parties feel they always get their fair share’s worth. If you like to share blunts or joints, both sides can contribute towards the co-creation at the time of rolling. In the event either of you run out before the other, you’ll be forced to ask nicely and become increasingly aware of how often you’re both being kind enough to allow the other access to their side of the share.You could even make them “earn” more in playful, creative ways. This GG response should bring good herbal karma and a resentment free blazing environment. It will also protect your stash from being burnt up while you’re hard at work!”
BG: “Separate the stash ASAP! If your partner runs out, they’ll learn the hard way when they have to watch you enjoy your sweet smoke after barreling through their own. The more you make them beg and not give in, the more they’ll realize the importance of either buying more or rationing their own. If they can’t afford more, maybe you could point out they shouldn’t have such an expensive tolerance if they don’t plan on being able to afford it? If they end up stealing your stash anyway, at least take solace in that there is a special place in hell for perpetual moochers and stash pinchers. This will at least ensure you keep what’s yours. Afterall, it’s a slippery and expensive slope supporting, or unwillingly somehow absorbing someone else’s relationship expenses for their Mary Jane. But beware, the BG course of action may lead to a darker future. Angry fights, break-ups, resentment and worse; being the one with no herb when you most desperately need or want it, only to have your “partner” finally jump on their chance to flaunt it right back at you, possibly even exhaling large cloud right in your face, leading to homicidal breaking point could be down this path! Ultimately you could end up in prison or worse, with littleor no access to any Mary Jane of your own. Maybe sharing isn’t so bad?”
