How Much For Weed
Greenbacks for Green Bud
Our favorite sticky, stanky, skunky commodity always comes with a price. The price varies all across this great nation of ours (which would be even greater if all states could make the golden bud legal) for vast numbers of reasons, from legality concerns to simple availability. Because the legality of weed is as sticky as the golden kush itself, depending on where you live, the price of weed could be at a premium.
How much is a gram of weed in the Midwest? How much is a pound of weed in New England? How much is an eighth of weed in Montana, or Georgia, or Louisiana? What can I expect to pay in Tulsa or Dallas for an ounce of weed? How much is an ounce of weed in Denver or Boulder, where the regulations are more lax? How much is an oz of weed in Portland? If you live in a red state or a blue state, and if marijuana is legal or illegal, or whether the regulations aren’t that bad, these are all variables that will ultimately affect the dollar price of your next high.
“O, Bud. Where art Thou?”
