Uruguay Wants To Sell Legal Marijuana For $1 Per Gram


uruguay marijuana legalizationI have always pointed out that Oregon has some of the lowest marijuana prices in America. I am referring to high quality marijuana, not schwag. Schwag is cheap in Oregon too, but not as cheap as it is in border states in the Southwest. In Oregon, purchasing 3.5 grams of good marijuana for $20 is very common. Thats about $5.71 per gram. I can get ounces for $125 in Oregon, which drops the price to about $4.46 per gram. The cheapest I have ever seen marijuana in Oregon that was good enough that I would smoke it would be $900 per pound for some sun grown marijuana from Southern Oregon. That’s right around $2 per gram.

It looks like Uruguay is out to beat Oregon and the rest of America by selling legal marijuana for $1 per gram. I haven’t ever smoked Uruguay marijuana, so I’m not sure how good it is. But if it’s as good as medium grade sun grown marijuana in Southern Oregon or better, that would be an amazing deal. If it’s for schwag, that’s actually a bit of a price gouge.

According to The Huffington Post:

The El Pais newspaper reported Sunday that drug chief Julio Calzada says marijuana sales should start in the second half of 2014 at a price of $1. He says the idea isn’t to make money, but to wrench the market away from illegal dealers. Calzada said in August that the price would be around $2.5 per gram.

Another thing that I’m curious about is are these numbers converted to American dollars, and if so, what is the inflation rate of Uruguay compared to America? As the currencies in both countries change, the comparison in prices will change too. As I stated before, I’ve seen decent marijuana sell in Oregon for $2 per gram, so Uruguay isn’t necessarily revolutionizing anything to us here in the Pacific Northwest. However, if you live in a state that doesn’t have good marijuana, or worse, hardly any marijuana, I’m sure $1 a gram sounds like a dream!

    Dr B I’m interested in learning how to grow my own medicine. I’m new at this but here in Cali we get the medium grade medicine that doesn’t help for pain or anziety, the tolerance is terrible, at 20 and 55 dollars a gram for a fancy name that only gives you medium grade help there is not enough thc or cbd to help me get better but the price is high enough for me to go broke. I would have to go black market to get the real products but I don’t feel same or even know anyone who sales high grade medical marijuana. I have cancer and I’m trying to find any means to get rid of this. email me if you can teach me, I can be reached at gcastilleja@gmail.com,

    I get around, like the Seattle High Times Cannibus Cup. I think SoCal indoor blows away the Washington stuff. I know SW Oregon outdoor intimately, and I grow better in buckets outdoors in SoCal. Part of that is genetics : I grow from clones once a year. And Painkiller2, You too can supp;y yourself with just 3 clones, grown on 2 gallon buckets, on a south facing porch. Just have the clones be 2-3 wqeeks old and strongly rooted late July. Then move to buckets outdoors, and they will never get over 3 feet tall but bud out heavy. If you can protect grom caterpillars, you will get 2-3 ounces per plant of good B+ smoke.

    You mention CBD (only?) strains and I am ever curious about this subject. Do patients see improvement right away with these strains, or does it take time for the cannabis to build up in their systems? Do you have any patients treating chronic pain with a high CBD strain?

    I am still in mourning for Bob, the cactus that I accidently murdered 10 years ago. It was a brutal loss, so, no more tending plants for me. You know how dogs and babies don’t like certain people? Yeah, well, the whole plant world will forever hold a grudge against me because of poor, dead Bob. I really don’t like to talk about it…

    I get the feeling that I’m going to have to stay put for a couple of years until things settle down on the MMJ front. I may have one more move left in me, but it needs to be the last one, know what I mean jelly bean? Cheers!

    Sorry brother, that would be illegal, can’t transport across state lines. I wish I could.

    Most of the collectives are delivery only in my area, we have a couple store fronts within 10 miles. There are lots of store fronts in Seattle, and a few in Bremerton, depends on the city.. The spinning was just a figure of speech lol I’m a hybrid man myself, that’s about all I grow besides a couple CBD strains for cancer patients. Look up cities in WA on thcfinder.com that will give you a good idea.
