So we're paying for their licenses? Through the mark up, which includes money for profit and for their licensing of ~$2000 per year? Wouldn't it be easier for everyone to just donate money to our two retailers, say $10-$20 per member per year, an annual fee for age verification, then we wouldn't have prices marked up as much?
Or am I missing something? Obviously retailers need profit, it's not a charity they're organizing, it's a business. But if the community can help pay for retailer's licenses, would that make prices any cheaper? Somebody please correct me
