As the saying goes dealer's are a man's best friend, right? No? If that's not right it should be. Anyway, there is a delicate and beautiful balance between a weed smoker and their dealer. Aside from the fact your dealer is financing their new Occulus game system and putting their kids through college thanks to you, they are also more important in your life than you realize.

1. Your dealer is there for you rain or shine.

Maybe it's Christmas Eve. Maybe it's three am on a Tuesday. No matter the day or time, your dealer has your back. They understand that family get-togethers, long work days, and Saturday morning hikes necessitate their help, and they're happy to do so. Your best friend might listen to your problems afterwards, but can never enhance your situation the way your dealer can.

2. They keep it real.

Sometimes tough love is hard on a person. Whether you be giving it, or receiving it, the process is usually painful. Your dealer, however, is well-versed in the art of delivering what could be considered "bad news". Whether they're out of weed, or just out of good weed, your dealer will always be straight with you. Your best friend, on the other hand, may enable your situation in order to spare your feelings.

3. They educate you on life.

We've all heard the "this shit right here" talk from our dealer before. While you may just think it's all hype (cue the time he swore he got his weed straight from Snoop himself), your dealer will educate you on the ins and outs of what you're smoking. He wants you to be informed on his product, and will always do his damndest to make sure you are better as a person for your weed knowledge.

4. They care about your financial well being.

Unlike your best friend who is trying to force you into an unaffordable Miami vacation this weekend for no other reason than she's single and wants to mingle, your dealer cares about your green. He will give you "the hook up" when he can, because more green in your pocket means more green you're getting from him. Trust us when we say your dealer will do anything in his power to make sure you've got money burning in your pocket.

5. They help you through life's tough situations.


Yes, your best friend probably does this too, but if you're lucky, your dealer will stick around for a complimentary joint to talk about your life, and give you an outsider's perspective (see #2). Also, it doesn't hurt that they're providing you weed, which always helps.

6. They give you really good directions.


Much like an Uber driver, your dealer makes his living cruising the streets. With that being said, he knows his way around. No matter how lost you are, your dealer will be able to guide you to the closest convenient store or recognizable landmark. And, unless your best friend happens to be an Uber driver, you're probably out of luck.

7. They have a great network.

In this day in age, everyone smokes weed. What does this mean for your dealer? Well, hopefully he's got a great network of people that he caters to. If you have a good relationship with him, you never know how his personal connections will come in handy. Need a job? We bet he knows a guy. Need your gutters cleaned out? We bet he knows a guy. Want juicy gossip about a political scandal? Yea, we bet he knows a guy.

8. They'll be the first person to look for you if you go missing.

While your best friend might not think much of you missing family dinner on Wednesdays, your dealer will surely notice if you don't pick up your eighth for the week. While a call to the authorities may be a little awkward, your dealer will surely check up on your health and well-being as soon as he notices you're not around.

9. They will give you loans (if you're lucky).

No matter the depth of the relationship you have with your best friend, asking to borrow money is awkward. If, however, you have a good outstanding relationship with your dealer, they may be willing to lend a hand when needed. And, if they won't give you cash, they probably will at least front you some bud to help you emotionally get through your financial woes.

10. They're usually in a good mood.

If you're anything like us, you basically have a marriage-style relationship with your best friend. But, we all know that means for better or worse. So, if you're best friend is sad about a breakup, mad at her boss, or spilled coffee all over her new outfit, you have to hear about it. Your dealer, on the other hand, will always be happy (he's making money afterall). You never have to worry about hearing them complain about work, relationships, or soiled shirts, which makes for a better time for you all around.

11. They're good at communication ;)

We say this tongue in cheek because sometimes they're super responsive but other times you find yourself pacing back and forth waiting for them to hit you back.

The moral of this story is, love your best friend, but be good to your dealer. He's the most important person in your life right now.
