dub sackOne of our most popular articles was one that Ninjasmoker wrote titled ‘How Much Should I Be Paying For My Weed?’ Ninjasmoker and I were worried that it would turn into a ‘meet a dealer article’ when he first posted it, but our attitudes have changed over time. Now, we just don’t give an f. So keeping with the spirit of Ninja’s article, I am posting this article. Think of it as more of an interactive article where you, the reader, can post below how much a dub sack weighs in your area.

Here in Oregon along the I-5 corridor, if you are getting less than 1.5 grams for your 20 bucks, you are getting ripped off. Keep in mind, we are talking about high grade, chronic, ‘kill bud,’ or whatever people call it where you’re from. If you are smoking stuff with seeds that is not green, then you seriously need to consider moving. Of course, if you are an experienced consumer, or even just average, you can get a 2.0-2.5 gram sack for twenty bucks in Oregon. I personally refuse to pay more than 25 dollars for an eighth, and it better be superb. Let’s face it, supply and demand is in the favor of the buyer these days on the West Coast. So what’s up readers, how much are you paying? I look forward to seeing the comments posted below.

  • Hank

    In Mn is common to spend 20 bucks on 1 gram. thats pretty much the breakdown. and thats for mediocre shit.

    • Monica

      It’s pretty much the same here in ND. I miss living down in NM. It was soooo much cheaper

    • MN

      I don’t know who your buying from! 2.2 for $20.

  • Kenny Brown

    Personally here in the Upstate NY, north of the Pennsylvania border, we pay as follows:

    [Medical Grade}
    …Experienced Consumers…
    1-1.3g -$20.00
    3.5g – $50.00 to $55.00
    7g – $90.00 to $100.00
    14g – $175.00 to 185.00
    28g – $280.00 to $310.00

    …Novice Consumer…
    .8g – $20.00
    3.5g – $60.00 to $70.00
    7g – $110.00 to $120.00
    14g – $200.00 to $230.00
    28g – $400.00 to $430.00

    • D.

      We must be close and gettin the same stuff, that’s right on the money.
      its not fair, but it’s accurate. I was born and raised in the Mississippi delta. NY rates were a culture shock.

  • Lildewb

    Down here its
    $20 a gram
    $50-60 1/8
    $100-120 1/4
    $200 1/2
    $350 – 420 an ounce.

    And this is for very mediocre smoke. I have rarely found anything impressive in my location. Therefore I became self sufficient and never looked back.


    here in billings montana here prices for medical grade amd its dank ass fuck
    140-half zip
    280-tha whole O

  • Killer Hippe

    Here in Idaho it varies all over the state. A dub to me has always been a gram, chronic and delicious. 1.3 for family. 1.7 for 25, and 3.5 for 50.
    Reasoning for the high price is the high price you pay if you find yourself with criminal charges. No medical cannabis in Idaho quite yet, so most of the medical grade flowers that come through here are from out of state.

  • Eric B

    Street prices for kine bud from a small time salesman in the Fort Lauderdale area would cost you $25 for 1.7g

    Down here in texas its:

      • Dirty Hippie Freak

        No, California’s “Central Valley” is still severely depressed.

        Get high-q homegrown (all buds, sinsemilla) for $75 an eighth.

        Then again, last time I was in Golden Gate Park, prices were pretty damned good, considering San Fran is booming…sorry if you aren’t near California…

      • 2Ga2ge

  • kellybean

    Metro Mass has various prices related to location and quality. connections come and go for some reason. I guess going through a friend is costly becasue I buy the beer and I wouldn’t necessarily bring them home. I sure wish I had a tree!!

  • justice

    Legalizing weed will; create jobs, lower taxes stimulate economy.

  • Connor

    Shit! I live on the central coast of California and i get atleast 2 gs for dank thats like minimum i feel bad for those 20 a g’rs that straight blows

  • http://twitter.com/DJMarcusXL Marcus Weber

    A little secret to the noob on the “street” (ie private dealers as opposed to clinics): prices are negotiable. If you ask for a specific deal & it’s fair for both of you, you’ll probably get it; remember, the faster your dealer sells his product, the better for him. Haggling would be in bad taste, but don’t be shy to make an offer.
    The question of quality should be based on one thing; honesty. Did you source tell you it was the Bomb, then you got home to a bag of someone’s crappy, seedy homegrown? If so, drop them. If they lie to you once, they’ll do it again. On the other hand, if they give you the truth straight-up, they’re one of the few honest ones. Quality always varies (nature of the industry), even with the best of sources, but honesty is permanent.West Coast people should expect an eighth (3.5 grams) to be $30 (+/- $5 for quality etc), and a $20 should get you 2g plus a bit.

  • Tom McM

    Here in NJ, you will NOT get a G of exotics for less than $20. Period. I know 8 people who sell and not one sells for under $20. Because they can’t. Cannabis comes down from canada through Oregon, which is why it is the least expensive on the west coast. As it moves east, it gets more and more expensive. By the time it reaches here, its $20/g at the best prices. HOWEVER, gas prices start out low on the east and get higher as they go west. Right now, (March 22nd) going into summer (the highest gas prices) the highest station is charging $3.50/gal. During the fall and winter, the price drops to $2.80ish/gal.

    • shay

      Hahaha West Coast bud prices has nothing to do with Canada. Canadian bud goes to the East Coast. I’ve NEVER seen Canadian bud on the West Coast we grew our own out there I spent most of my life in California and a lot of time in Oregon & Washington.

  • Theanchovibus

  • ThyPenguin

    In Missouri, a dub weighs 3.5g @ $60.

  • Ariakas77708

    Out here where I live I get all my shit for free basically. If I do ever have to pay for it like yesterday I got a little over an eighth for 20$ and it’s all dank ass weed. I get 3-4 blunts at a time for free and It has some kush nor-cal or some pretty lady in it. Or at least recently it has. I get Pineapple Express or some chronic fire by the oz. for 25$. I gave my homie 10$ and he gave me about half an oz. of some crazy ads dank shit. I don’t remember what it was called but it was some fire. That’s for Damn sure. You fools need to get out here to Cali.

  • CaliReefer

    Man I get 1.8-2.2 for a dub, and 2.7 for $25. And it’s grown by my guy to his preference (think the pungent aromatics, frosty, sticky, little to no stems, beautiful dense nugs). Not to mention if he has shake that he doesn’t want, we just end up rolling a reefer so I think I’m getting a real good deal at the end of the day. Also, he really hooks it up when I pick up in bulk or let a few of my buddies pick up from him as well.

    • jjj

      dutty weed

  • Twizz Nizzle

    Dayton ohio 20 a gram..50 a 8th 100 a quarter

    • Guest

      Dank bud is 20$ a gram. 50-60$ an 8th. An ounce will run you 300-400$. Now if you’re smoking “mids” (that’s what we call the seedy shit here) 5$/g, 10$/2g’s, 20$/4g’s, 30$/7g’s, 50-60$ for a half ounce, 90-100$ for an ounce. I live in Columbus, Ohio. It sucks. Because being a heavy smoker I’m left with one question. Quanity? (Mids), or quality(Dank). I’m not made of money. So I have to think “Hmm I can spend 20$ on a blunt, or I can spend 20$ and get 4 blunts. (Given each blunt is a gram). It’s quite shitty really. I’d love to smoke chronic all of the time but I’m not made of money.

      • Twizz Nizzle

        Me either I get really good mids no seeds same prices butviys just not that dank dro loud ect…

    • CameronCataclysm

      Yup. thats how it is here in Columbus. Sometimes 110$.

      • Iknowthecureforcancer

        Licking county here. A tad cheaper. $40 for 3.5 grams

      • Ballnb420

        Would you be willing to drive to Michigan 10 a g all day… Blueberry kush, casey Jones, head band, green cack. You name it gotta love Medical Michigan lol

  • grumpy weed

    Refuse to pay more than 25 for a little one!? Basically the cheapest good bud around central Pennsylvania is 55/60 for an 8th…. seedy mids you’ll be lucky to find an 8th under 40!

  • Jordan

    Depending the dispensary that you go to, you get the right. Ive never been underweighed. its always been either on point or over. In mine, Seattle, WA, I pay anywhere from 7-9 dollars a gram, 23-35 for an eighth, more than 65 for a quarter and 90 for the half. under 200 for the ounce. I love Washington.

    • sheepjones420

      i live here too lol

  • Kristeen

    Where I live medical weed our what we call “loud” is twenty a gram. Regular we’d is twenty dollars for 3.5 grams. Demand is allot higher then supply, around here anyway.

  • Smokey McHillbilly

    $40 an 1/8th where I am in Wisconsin. Same price for Dank and Reg. Prices suck when you don’t know many people

  • noneyobis

    I live in eugene I can get 1/8ths of superb bud for 20

  • OneLoveTC

    In nc it’s $60 for 3.5g (eighth) and that’s for high grade “loud” bud. I’m jealous everyone is cheaper :(

  • Skyliines

    In western Iowa for $20 you’ll get a single gram, unless you get that bro hook up and maybe 1.2 or 1.3. After reading this article, I’m seriously considering moving to a different state.

    • Waldo

      lets go on an adventure, because i feel the exact same.


    Texas, ATX to be exact 8ths of some A-1 around 40-45 and zones around 260 to 3… But it’s usually really good and those are decent prices around here unless you are buying to sell and you could get qp’s anywhere between 8-1000 depending on who you know… As soon as it is legal prices will drop like the west coast and Colorado prices..

  • CameronCataclysm

    Dank bud is 20$ a gram. 50-60$ an 8th. An ounce will run you 300-400$.

    • SPLURG

      Dude, I’m up in Lorain ohio, I get stuck with some deals sometimes. Usually 5 a g for mids, amd 15 a g for loud and such. I can get an eighth for 35 and a cutie for 85 :P

  • Epilepticsmoker.

    Up here in northern MI even during the winter season if you’re paying more than $10 a gram for stuff like Bluedream, B.C Black, or Deathstar then you need to just let your friends by for you.

  • The Todd

    On the average we spend 50 for 3 grams..

  • stacie

    When I was young I was told that 1.7 was the going rate, but I expect to get 2.0 now. Also it’s $10 a gram at the dispensaries. I live in Puget Sound, WA.

    • sheepjones420

      i live in arlington wa its 10 a gram, but i get hooked up 25 a half ounce of 28% thc white nightmare every day
