cost of marijuanaBuying marijuana is pretty much a permanent fixture on the stoner’s monthly expenses. Bills get paid first (or at least they should) and then the remaining bill money is spent on buying bud. Depending on where you live, this could be a decently large amount of money. The prices of cannabis differ in different geographical locations, providing stoners with either a little bit of extra weed or a little less. In some areas, this may be a lot less, as there are some states that have terrible grow conditions or are just difficult to sell in due to laws, so the prices are jacked up in order to even out the risk involved.

Place in California sell ounces for as little as $150. While the weed obviously isn’t top shelf, it’s still smokable and of better quality then most states end up receiving. High end strains end up going for $200 and up, depending on what the strains is and the dispensary. California seems to be the place with the lowest prices for cannabis because even though Colorado has legal bud, their tax rate brings the total price up a considerable amount. And for those stoners that are on a budget, price of bud is everything. Not only that but getting decent quality is important, especially when you don’t have a lot of money to spend. There are so many stoners out there that manage to spend some money on bud and end up with a bag of Brown Frown!

The farther north you go in the states, the price gets higher. States that border Canada can see ounces go anywhere from $225 for alright stuff to over $400 for what is supposed to be the best but as said above, the kind of quality you get is always a risk. Even small amounts get frustrating when you manage to find an extra $20 that isn’t going towards electricity, rent, or some other form of necessary bill, head to your dealer’s place, and leave with a bag of what could pass as the stuff that gets scraped from lawnmower blades. The middle southern states also have problems with their weed prices and not only that, but finding the bud is extremely difficult in the first place.

If you happen to live in a spot that has decently priced bud as well as good quality, don’t take it for granted. There are people that struggle to find something to smoke every single day. As legalization continues to take strides, the price of legal weed will hopefully level out, letting stoners smoke without endangering their bills. But even if they do’t, stoners will always find a way to smoke if they really want to, even if that means saving spare change to buy a gram.

    I’m BiPolar 1, rapid cycler, smoked marijuana from 15-30 yrs of age, quit. Was diagnosed as BP at 42. Just crashed again after Manic phase, I can’t live thru another”Darkness”. All I know is I never suffered from suicidal depressions or Manic highs when I took a couple of puffs a day, I was a Credit Analyst, not a constant stoner …….I live in Texas, I’m becoming desperate. What do I do, where do i go to get medicinal marijuana…..I don’t want to deal with back alley drug dealers, I’m a respectable citizen, I don’t know if I’ll make it thru another depression, I can’t stabilize out, pharmaceutical meds are killing me.

      Find a young person to ask, or… grow your own?

        Would depend on the law there, or rather the penalty. If like PA you can grow an oz and it’s no more penalty than possessing an oz, then growing might be a good idea. If cultivation inherently carries a higher potential penalty, find someone who you trust and get some from them every now and then.

    Companion Measures Filed in Kansas to Legalize Medical Cannabis »Members
    of Congress Send Letter to President Obama Urging Reformation of U.S.
    Cannabis Policies
    February 12, 2014

    A bipartisan coalition of 18 federal lawmakers sent a letter today to
    President Obama, urging him to put an end to cannabis prohibition by
    removing it as a Schedule 1 substance.

    “Dear Mr. President: We were encouraged by your recent comments in your interview with
    David Remnick in the January 27. 2014 issue of the New Yorker, about
    the shifting public opinion on the legalization of marijuana”, begins
    the letter. “We request that you take action to help alleviate the harms
    to society caused by the federal Schedule 1 classification of
    marijuana.”

    The letter continues; “Lives and resources are wasted on enforcing
    harsh, unrealistic, and unfair marijuana laws… Classifying marijuana as
    Schedule 1 at the federal level perpetuates an unjust an irrational
    system. Schedule 1 recognizes no medical use, disregarding both medical
    evidence and the laws of nearly half of the states that have legalized
    medical marijuana.

    We request that you instruct Attorney General Eric Holder to delist
    or classify marijuana in a more appropriate way, at the very least
    eliminating it from Schedule 1 and 2.”

    The letter states that billions of dollars are spent each year
    arresting hundreds of thousands of people, and also notes that African
    Americans are roughly four times more likely to be arrested for cannabis
    than someone who’s Caucasian.

    The Congressmen and Congresswomen who signed on to the letter: Earl
    Blumenauer (Or.), Dana Rohrabacher (Calif.), Steve Cohen (Tenn.), Sam
    Farr (Calif.), Raúl Grijalva (Ariz.), Mike Honda (Calif.), Jared Huffman
    (Calif.), Barbara Lee (Calif.), Zoe Lofgren (Calif.), Alan Lowenthal
    (Calif.), James McGovern (Mass.), Jim Moran (Va.), Beto O’Rourke
    (Texas), Jared Polis (Colo.), Mike Quigley (Ill.), Jan Schakowsky
    (Ill.), Eric Swalwell (Calif.), and Peter Welch (Vt.).

    NW Florida (may as well be AL). I have three pretty reliable sources. One I patronize more than the
    others because he brings it to me and he’s not scary. I am a middle aged white lady. :) I pay $20 a gram or $50 for an eighth. It’s high grade and he almost always knows what strain it is.

  11.  

    I pay 5$ for .5 or 10$ for a gram and its about 40$ for an eighth here in ottawa,ontario

  12.  

    Down here in Hendersonville Tn it goes for 50 an 8th and a 100 a qrtr and its Damn good From California. And its normally always top shelf and always has strain names. Right now we have a few options to pick from:ChemDawg,Blue diamond,Animal cookies,Og/Greencrack and Grandaddy purp. We havent had to go a day with out smoke in over 4 or 5 years.

    In Seattle weed is some of the best in the world. Prices for oz can go from 150 to 300. But Ive lived all over the country and Seattle has the most consistent prices for the best weed out there. The Seattle area is flooded with Grape Ape and all kinds of kush. Every great strain can be found here ant any given time.

      This is now added to my “must visit” place list. Definitely some strains that are tough to find around here that I need to try for myself.

  14.  

    $20 per gram in Iowa, in my area

  15.  

    In Alberta and most all of canada I’ve been it’s pretty standard. 10 for a g, 30 for eighth, 50-70 for a quarter, all the way up to 180-250 an ounce. Depends on who you know and how good it is but price in canada is always around this standard.

    In my experience PA has some good weed prices. My girl & I smoke daily, it’s a must for us (I use it to control my seizures, and an added bonus is my girl and I never fight when we smoke). We pay $45 for an 8th of loud. It’s good, that’s for sure, & if you’re on good terms with dealers around here you can definitely get the hook up. Plus, with living in Allentown there’s usually a fair amount of options — at least from my experience thus far. Even when almost everyone is dry — put in a bit of effort & you’ll find good shit for a good price. #ReasonsForLikingPA. I remember in MA I got good prices too though– a bit better too simply because of who I knew & the way I lived, etc. so it made getting weed not so much of a worry or question, bc I knew id have it.
