The Price Of Weed in the US

Its a slow holiday week, and with the end of August on us, we can have a little fun with the maps below from floatingsheep. They have mapped the price variants of marijuana across the country. Yellow = more expensive, Darker green = lower price. (There are no controls indicated for quality of product or THC density).



A Caveat: The analysis was based on data from the Price of Weed [2], a user-managed source that tries to paint a geographic picture of ganja cost. We can assume the folks who use that site perhaps might not always be the most reliable sources.
