You’ll Spend $653 Dollars a Year on Weed in Colorado
That’s what Colorado State University found, figuring the average pot user smokes about 3.5 ounces of bud in a year. The going rate of an ounce of weed is roughly $185 dollars. Are they smoking straight dirt?

Nice to see the price is hitting beer prices. Figure two beers a day of good craft beer will cost about the same.
185$ is pretty good. 2 seasons back in my corner of Nor Cal the bottom literally fell out. the going rate at the Farmer level was $58.00 - $70.00. all dispensary medicinal quality. just cutting out several middle men. Not sure what this season will bring yet.
I live in Co. And yeah you should expect to pay around 185-230 for an oz. and it's all high grade nugs, NOT dirt. Since there are many dispensaries around competing for the business, it's drives the price Down.
I love it here. Pepperkeet needs to fly on down here and get his "Fresno" on
I hope weed doesnt become legal, id hate to see corporate weed companies. decriminalize it so you can possess and grow, but illegal to sell and transport massive amounts.
Thats not bad. You can spend that much in a weekend at the bar if you are buying rounds for a few friends.
Once it was legalized the price plummeted. It will go back up a little once the tax man starts digging in but right now no one's afraid to sell anymore they all started competing and the market tanked.
3.5 in a year? You can easily go through an ounce in a week or two...
Also an ounce of good nuggz will run you about $400 if you are lucky.
@Pecker Hicks Come to colorado. $20 an eighth for the best sour D you can find. This ain't no dog shit.
@BruceCownian You've done too much work yourself to be called a "venture capitalist". Traditionally, the venture capitalist just throws his/her daddy's money at a start-up company and expects huge rates of return.
@ecupirate lately he gets his for free. Wish I worked in radio!
@rexdart936 Make your own, it's easy!
@Ojisan If you pay more than 350 you are a chump, but in a legal state like CO it is possible it's cheaper. If it's good nuggs an O should last at least 4 weeks. Otherwise you are getting chumped x2.
@Ojisan like like like a million times like
I couldn't agree more on both points, unless you're one of those assholes who thinks it's cool to roll good buds into a blunt. You're not living the thug life, you're just being wasteful.
