My alcoholic friend buys the cheapest alcohol that he can get his hands on.
I only drink a few times a year.
When I drink, I want something that is quality. The alcohol “buzz” feels better to me with higher quality liquor opposed to the cheap stuff my friend has in his pantry. He gets this beer from Dollar General that is the cheapest alcohol I have ever tasted. He drinks this stuff every night, along with his generic vodka that he gets at a quarter of the price of other brands of cheap vodka. It’s not that I’m a snob or anything like that, I just appreciate good tasting alcohol with pleasing effects. I have a bottle of canadian whiskey that cost $40 and I’ve had it since last May. It is still over half full because of how infrequently I drink. I’m more of a marijuana smoker. I visit the cannabis dispensaries in my city at least once a month to pick up jars of flower buds in either sativa or indica strains. I have tried all sorts of routes of administration with marijuana from tinctures to skin creams, but smoking flower has been the most effective for me. When our state first got legal marijuana, it was a medical market only. I still have my medical marijuana card and I retain the ability to shop in medical-only pot stores. The quality is of a much higher standard because there has to be stricter guidelines in place with growing, cultivation, and lab testing before the product can hit shelves. The recreational dispensaries have weed that doesn’t make me feel as good physically and mentally as the pot I get at the medical stores.
