    SWITC was sitting about, quite baked, and a thought came to him.

    In SWITC's past, he has been sold marijuana without a container, in cellophane from a cigarette box, in tiny glass vials with plastic pop-off caps, and ofcourse in the notorious dime bag.

    SWITC was wondering how a small amount of marijuana, such as a gram or two, was sold in the 60's and early 70's.

    SWITC apologizes if this seems like an utterly mindless post. :crazy

      Great question which I was thinking of sometimes but never got around to ask.

    In the 60's and 70's there weren't "dimebags." Well, there was, but it wouldn't have fit into one of those dimebag sacks that are arround today. Inflation price has gone up by well over 5000% since the 70's.

    A dimebag would be about a half ounce or more.

    Often grass was sold by the "lid" which was about an ounce (28.35gm). Half a lid would be what a dimebag was pricewise. More for the best grades like the legendary Acapulco Gold.

    Then again, the weed back then was hardly as potent as some strains available today. ;)

    Wasn't it sold in matchboxes as well, or is that a Netherlandian tradition?

    In Phil Lesh's (Bass player for the Grateful Dead) book, he mentions buying weed in a matchbox in the mid 60's.

    Matchboxes, in the USA, were mostly found in use in large cities - like San Francisco where Phil Lesh was a denizen. But soon the ubiquitous baggie (plastic) swept the nation. Everyone prefered the GLAD brand as they were thicker and less prone to ripping. And everyone knew the GLAD baggie weighed 1.5gm.

    Hippies had acces to much more weed because there wasn't a "drug war" yet at least early sixties. So like previously stated more was sold for less.
