Gimme a hit of that CO2

If I can make 36 bucks a pop selling co2 bottles that I used a crappy marijuana leaf stencil on....then call me a dope dealer. What a F'-ing tool.

He's simply cashing in on an extremely stupid market segment.

What do you expect from potheads? They pay good money for something they can grow for basically nothing.

Clearly you have no idea what your talking about. Good quality produce costs money regardless of what your growing. Be it Oranges or Pot.

While $16 bucks for a paintjob might seem expensive, I don't think it's out of control assuming they are new tanks. While I have no interest in one of these tanks, seems like your looking for something where there's nothing.

Perhaps you should consider why your so biased?

No, potheads. Marijuana plants produce over a pound of buds per plant, worth at least $2000. It requires next to nothing in terms of fertilizer, care, etc, at least compared to legitimate crops.

Last I looked, a pound of potatoes was $.50. A pound of weed was $2K. Potatoes require a great deal of land, chemicals and equipment, Marijuana does not. I used to know an apartment grower, and he once told me, that of every 10 bucks he took in, at least $9 went straight into his pocket. I can also tell you from dealing with potheads, they never seem to have money except for their habit, I've learned never to take an IOU from them, for any work done.

$16 for ten seconds with a rattlecan, versus the $20 dollars that it cost for the actual tank, the one that most likely took at least a coupla minutes to make on some fairly expensive equipment? Double the cost, is double the cost.

Because I hate ripoff deals? Admittedly, I admire the guy for his willingness to exploit the ignorant - anybody stupid enough to pay that when ten seconds on google will tell him that it's basically overpriced, all because it has something silly spraypainted on it, deserves to be seperated from his money.

DOT and ebay would be very intrested in this illigal and unsafe products being sold for profit.
