I bet the growers are still able to dry and cure well where you are. There's a lot less steps between the grower and buyer, so things tend to be done right. When the industry gets bigger, like here, the weed is harvested early, handled by a bunch of people, and often overdried beforeit gets to you. I bet your weed blows away what we get here at the dispensary. Back in the med days we had much better weed in the shops.
