Pros and Cons of Being the Plug

As a former plug, I am going to share some pros and cons from my experiences.

Pros of Being the Plug:

The first pro about selling masks out of your house is that you never run out of masks. Okay, cool, now that the feds are gone, let's get started. Being a plug is maybe one of the most fun jobs you can possibly have in this world, but there are many risks that go into it, so today I am going to tell you about the pros and cons of it.

Starting with the pros is living that plug life. There is not much better than having a shit ton of weed on you at all times and hooking the homies up with it. It really is a great feeling, and the craziest part is that you make money from it.

Okay, now that I told you all of the pros in one sentence (sorry, I got excited), let's get into the details.

Being a plug means you have enough weed on you to sell. You can be a plug with one ounce or a plug with pounds, but either way, you are still the plug. You still get to enjoy the comfort of knowing that you got a shit ton of weed on you and that you are not going to run out of it any time soon.

Some of the pros being a plug offers is being somewhat financially secure. You can make good money being a plug and easily be able to smoke for free. You also get some business experience, as buying and selling anything will teach you business skills. I honestly feel like those skills transferred well into the professional world.

Being the plug also truly creates some memorable experiences. The biggest sesh's I had was when I was the plug because I was able to smoke everyone up and create a truly dope environment. So a little tip, befriend your plug.

People treat you differently when you are the plug. They all want the best deals possible, and what better way to do that than to suck up. But it really does work, some people treated me so well that I would give them good deals just because of it.

Lastly, It creates this feeling of power where you realize you have what everyone wants. It is a great feeling, but I am not sure if it is good for you. I will dive more into that in the cons section.


Cons of Being the Plug:

Okay, the biggest con is that it is illegal. Depending on where you live, you might go to jail for selling or just pay a fine. So if you decide you want to pursue this, do your research and figure out what the punishment is if you get caught and whether it is worth it to you.

Another con is that you no longer know if people like you for you. You are now able to offer people something that they need, and therefore their intentions may not be as pure as you thought they were, which can really hurt sometimes (especially when you feel used).

You also have to worry a little about your safety. People are aware that the plug should have a lot of cash and weed on them, so it is not unheard of plugs being robbed. Luckily, this never happened to me (that I was aware of).

The last con is that when you have a lot of weed on you, it is really challenging not to want to smoke at all hours of the day. I am not going to say that smoking all day is a bad thing, because you do you, but for me, I still wanted to be somewhat productive during my days, and it made it very challenging. I would go on benders where I would smoke for weeks straight and get nothing done. Was it a ton of fun? Yes, but at the same time, it was definitely not a healthy way to live.


By no means am I telling you to start selling. I just want people to be aware of the pros and cons, and that it is not all fun and games, and it can be dangerous.

Looking back at my decisions, I would not have changed any of them as it was a great experience for me. But it easily could have gone differently as I was in a very illegal state, and had I got caught, I could have still been in jail today.

Being the plug was a ton of fun for me, and I think it was meant to happen as this account probably would not have existed if things had worked differently, but remember, it is not for everyone, and it does not always work out well, so be smart if you decide to test it out.

Also feel free to comment any questions you may have, or if you have experience selling share some of the pros and cons you have found.

Thanks for listening, and keep getting high.


ps: the story of why I stopped selling is pretty funny, so let me know if you would like me to record a podcast about those days.
