What's the point of buying expensive alcohol and then drinking a small amount that won't get you even a little drunk?
I don't go out and buy dank just so that I can take a few little hits and say "hmm that was fun to smoke". I buy it because it will give me a good high. People smoke schwag when they can't get anything else just because it will get them high but they don't go out and buy malt liquor just because it will get them drunk?
At least with weed you could argue that higher quality gets you a better high (different cannabinoids and such), but all alcohol gets you drunk the same way the only difference is the degree which you could control by simply drinking less. You're basically just paying for a better flavor.
I know that many people do in fact drink just to get drunk and buy cheap liquor. But a lot of others think that it's trashy to do so and buy expensive alcohol seemingly just so that they can take a few sips. Makes no sense to me.
