The Reason Weed Is So Expensive

Discussion in 'Marijuana Stash Box' started by bongs4days, Feb 5, 2014.

  1. You can get a pound for about $3000, but mathematically, that averages out to about $10/1.5g. The reason it costs so much, obviously, is because of how many times it changes hands. I've made this table, which shows the gradual increase in price over time.

    Pound (16oz): $3,000

    QP (4oz): $900 (30% of $3,000)
    $900 • (16 / 4 = 4) = $3,600
    $3,600 / $3,000 = 1.20 (20% profit)

    Ounce (28.35g): $270 (30% of $900)
    $270 • (4 / 1 = 4) = $1080
    $1080 / $900 = 1.20 (20% profit)

    Quarter (7 grams): $80 (30% of $270)
    $80 • (28.35 / 7 = 4.05) = $324
    $324 / $270 = 1.20 (20% profit)

    Dime (0.7g): $10
    $10 • (7 / 0.7 = 10) = $100
    $100 / $80 = 1.25 (25% profit)
  2. well you simply mathematically stated the obvious. The more you buy, the less you pay per gram. 
    why the hell would any dealers bother selling if they didn't make any profit.
  3. Dude, fuck math.

    You can't hold no groove, if you ain't got no pocket.
  4. Cool post though.

    You can't hold no groove, if you ain't got no pocket.
  5. im sure it applies to some, but not all. good reference though.
  6. Where the hell is a pound still worth $3000? Here it's more like $1300. But then, nobody sells grams anymore.
  7. People sell 0.6g bags in this shitty country.
  8. Yeah and charge over £200 an oz for shite if you don't know who your dealing with.

    Fucking joke.
  9.  Lots of places, for the dankest dank in you could go 4000 or more. But its pretty crazy I know, but this is what happens where it is illegal.

    Nope VXR I get mine directly from the grower, no other person involved and still it's the same, either overpriced or under par quality.

    All said and done with a straight face. It's comical
  15. He said he's gonna grow plus wants people to 'drive with him to Amsterdam' so I expect quality and quantity to improve haha.
