"Quality kush for sale." "We do overnight shipping and very discrete." "Best strains of high-quality medicinal at moderate prices."

You've seen the posts on FacebookTwitter, and your favorite websites. and some of you have probably even contacted some of these spammers. As a result of some messages we've been receiving questioning the authenticity of buying marijuana online (come on people, really?!), it seemed to us that it would be the perfect time to address this epidemic. The absurdity of these online scammers can be summed up in one of our recent interactions:

1. First we downloaded Burner (disposable phone number app)
2. Next we texted many said dealers until we could arrange a conversation
3. Here is the ensuing conversation: 

HT: We're doing a piece about buying pot online for our HIGH TIMES readers. You seem to be trying to sell marijuana online. Can you elaborate?

Anonymous: Yes, we have new strains available all the time: OG Kush, AK47, Sour Diesel, Skywalker OG. We provide safe and discreet packaging we put our stuff inside a Turkey double bag vacuum seal before shipment, packaging is 100% safe and secure with a discreet shipping and delivery.

HT: Are you a cop?

Anonymous: No.

HT: Are you sure? 

Anonymous: Yes.

HT: I've heard you also sell "juvial Yorkie pups."

Anonymous: Who told you that?

HT: A Google search of your phone number. Also "exotic cats."

Anonymous: I don't know what you're talking about.

HT: Okay, thanks for your time.

So as you can see, it is NOT a good idea to buy marijuana online from these guys/girls...ever. It's a scam. There are horror stories from people online who have tried. You don't get the pot. Or the money back. Really...don't do it.
