Wouldnyou ever weigh weed in front of a dealer? I live in a really poor dmall town and I have like 8 dealers and I've cut them all off except for 1 because of obvious as fuck shortage. I have one guy left and it's sketchy.

I wanna weigh in front of him but I'm scared of losing my only dealer and he has like 5:10 shit sometimes at least and that's the best it gets here

ummm don't know if you heard the news but in LA (and a few other cities for that matter) you buy it in an upscale store now.

dunno boy LA but up here in boston nobody would wanna buy from u unless you had a scale cause if you eyeball the amount people will *always* short u. good luck bro.
another good idea might be to let your dealer weigh it out themselves. even then it's hard to argue with a number

I like to switch from my guy to guy whenever he shorts, no questions, no comments. The next time I just ask another guy , usually have 5-3 guys at a time if I'm lucky. If you do this they just know you were bothered because you didn't get. The next time they'll usually hook you up but like not if you went out your way to be a Dick about it. Go somewhere else if you're going to bitch. Its an business, this guy doesn't care about your life.

How about moving out of whatever third world country your in first. No dealershould be giving you weed without weighing it first, that just jolly african-american behaviour

I mean, ideally you'd always see it weighed, yes. But a scale could mean the difference between a possession and a distribution charge if caught with what is otherwise the same amount of weed in many places. It also makes it more obvious that there's a deal going down while in use.

In, say, someone's place, yeah that might not be a problem. Depending on the situation though, it may make more sense to just weigh every bag once you get home before smoking any, and use the data to essentially vote with your dollar. It's one way to be proactive with minimal direct confrontation.

I guess it kind of depends on the amount as well; for small quantities I would just weigh it later if not eyeball, but I think it's pretty reasonable to expect a large purchase to be weighed out before handing over the money. Looking at it one way, people might think of you as an easy mark if you don't take the time to inspect the goods, especially when they know it's short.

this guy gets it.

Buy in increasingly larger amount, weighing each buy after returning home with it. You'll be able to see how he's treating you without it being awkward. Maybe it's a cultural difference, but all the reputable dealers in my area will weigh it in front of you the first few times to establish things.

Kiddy shit.
My dealer weighs it in front of me every time. Then we chill and smoke. She complains about stupid shit in her life. I pretend to care. Then we say bye.

It's that simple.

I think it's too risky to travel with scales, especially every time. This goes for both the dealer and the customer. Personally I'd just weigh it at home if you're worried and call them if you've been shorted, but that all depends how you meet. If it's at their house or your house then politely ask them to weigh it in front of you, just saying every other dealer you had would short you and you just want to build up solid trust with them. Just avoid travelling with scales as much as you possibly can because you can be charged for having scales alone and the charge for having both weed and scales is much worse than just having weed. If police find either scales or weed on you while travelling then they're going to search you hard enough to find both. Be safe friend and I hope you get a solid dealer you can rely on.

This so much (no complains from mine tho, just small talk and vydya sometimes). Although if I get acquainted with a new one I ask them if they wanna check if their scale is calibrated with the Yen test.

I always carry a Yen coin (they weight a gam) and tell them it's always off by 0.2 - 0.3 on regular scales and 0.1 in good ones because it's old and it has lost material over time but most single Yen coins scale at 1g. I often get asked if I have another they can keep.

As retarded as it is, some dealers will think it's rude to weigh in front of them. There is also the fact that having a scale on you just isn't a good idea.

I live in a legal state now but before I would just weigh it at home. If I get shorted, I politely let him know it's shorted. If he coughs up, then we're cool. If not, I don't buy from him again. Of course if this happens repeatedly then he's either incompetent or just trying to rip me off and I stop buying again.

it's only 'rude' in their eyes when they short you and know you want to get your money's worth

To be honest this picture is probably as relevant. There's almost no way to judge density, if you get tight nugs instead of fluffy ones then >>4898302 becomes instantly meaningless.

Maybe you could ask your dealer for a ride to the airport?
