You’ll Spend $653 Dollars a Year on Weed in Colorado


6129-000104That’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 remember $185 per oz weed, it was Dog Shit.  I'll keep paying $400.  Thanks.

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.

3.5 ounces a year?  When I smoked I averaged about an ounce a month.  My lungs love me.

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.

@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.

@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.

@clown baby @Ojisan if it's in a legal state then fuck paying for it - grow your own, much cheaper and fun to do.

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.

I don't live there. i'm sure the growing at home is partly why CO buds are cheaper.
