PriceofWeed.com is a website that asks users around the country to anonymously submit the price they pay for marijuana in their city and/or state. Over the last few years they have collected a ton of data on the street price of both legal and illegal marijuana around the country, and The Washington Post took all of this data and created a detailed map of individual state prices for an ounce of weed.
According to PriceofWeed.com the average ounce in the U.S. goes for $286.35. In the green states the price is lower than this average, and in the yellow, orange, and red states the price is higher. Some states that really stand out for having significantly cheaper cannabis than the national average are Colorado, California, Washington, and Oregon (who would have guessed?). Some states that really stand out for having expensive cannabis compared to the national average are Virginia, Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota.
Please take the time to analyze this map and post a comment if you agree or disagree with the average ounce price for your particular state!
Below are some even more detailed graphs which show the average price of one ounce of marijuana in select cities. There is an obvious trend showing marijuana prices being significantly cheaper on the west coast compared to the east coast. According to these graphs, Seattle currently has the cheapest average ounce of marijuana going for $212.
These maps and graphs are very interesting to analyze, and we are grateful that we live in such a beautiful part of the country with some of the cheapest weed. If you ever find yourself in Seattle you should come on our of our “Kush Tour” where you will learn all about the legal cannabis industry in Washington State by visiting a Glassblowing School, Legal Grow-Op, Cannabis Testing Facility, Recreational Marijuana Store, and much more.
