Finally, The Internet Is Doing Something Useful By Displaying Nationwide Weed Prices
I don't really have a good reason why this site does so much marijuana-related stories, save for the fact, that it's pretty interesting to watch something that was entirely forbidden ten years ago become more commonly studied than the price of milk. Seriously, even if you don't know how much a gallon of milk is, you probably know how much you can buy an eighth of weed for. Considering I don't smoke, but still live in Los Angeles, I know the price of a weed lollipop, an eight-serving brownie, and an eighth of an ounce of kush or swag or dank or whatever the hell people are calling it.
I know this because I hang out with too many potheads. Well, you don't have to make the same social compromises I do to know what this shit costs. Thanks to the ingeniously and intuitively named priceofweed.com website, anyone with a CompuServe dial-up (or whatever the hell those teenagers are using these days) can find out why their city is getting shafted on weed prices.
Of course, these guys at the free weed website aren't exactly the IMF so their data is shaky (read: pretty damn useless). According to their site, you could be paying $0-$300 for an ounce in the Pacific northwest and Canada, otherwise you're paying over $400 an ounce everywhere else.
Huh. It's that simple. Whatever. They're doing their best. Stoners have never been the best economists.
No matter where you are, weed is still pretty cheap, and if you can't afford to get as stoned as you like you should either a) stop smoking so much goddamn weed, or b) find a job that pays you more than $15 an hour. However, if either of those are too tall an order for you, move to Canada. I doubt anyone in the States will really miss you that much.
