So What Else Do Stores Sell Alongside Pounds and Pounds of Marijuana?


The NYPD cracked down on a little pocket of stores in Crown Heights that were acting as fronts for informal marijuana-dealing rings. Alongside their normal business, they were selling off hundreds of pounds of weed a week. So what else could you get with your eighth? Well, at Press Play CDs, you could buy the latest Ke$ha CD. At Chris Restaurant, you could helpfully stock up on “potato chips, vegetarian entrées, and incense.” And at D&Z Variety, according to the awning you could get your marijuana and incense with T-shirts and shea butter. Frankly, this sounds like a great idea. What else could you possibly need?
