I just split up 3 lbs from them. Ended up with close to two onces over for all of them. And that was after sorting out most of the stems and such.

You gonna roll that up into a fatty?

Seriously though, it's awesome that they do that. Plus, leaf hops have slightly less utilization, so it's nice to have extra on hand.

Yep, they are always over by 2-3 ounces. So, the cost per pound is even cheaper!

Man after my own heart!!! I was gunna say,What the hells wrong with a good bag man!? A bag a little on the heavy side got the dealer more business. So he'd keep on doin it for his usual customers. Obviously,I remember something of the cheech-n-chong days....
Never bitch about a good bag,5 fingers of joy to be apprecieated.

It is the dorm room weed seller's business plan. You always go back to the guy with the fat sacks. (Or so I hear.)

I always find 18-20 oz in a Hopsdirect 1lb bag. Your scale is fine.
