This Map Shows the Price Of Weed In Every State

According to Forbes…


Where would you go if you wanted to smoke weed? Well you might start in Colorado or Washington, the two states where it’s legal to smoke it recreationally (although that landscape is always shifting). But what if you didn’t care about the law, and you just wanted to blaze based on financial considerations? Well, you’d probably still head to Colorado or Washington, according to a new map from Forbes:

Forbes used data from priceofweed.com, which gets its data by “crowdsourc(ing) the street value of marijuana from the most accurate source possible: you, the consumer.” One might say stoners aren’t the best source of financial data, but, then again, there isn’t much stoners are more serious about than what they shell out for weed.

So good on you, Oregon, Colorado, Washington, California. And bad on you, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Virginia.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
