Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is one of the unique ingredients in marijuana that is isolated for pharmaceutical usage, since five decades now. Medicinal value has not raised its costs by any means though. The illicit recreational usage boosted its price to out of proportions in the black market too. To introduce, one of the most popular and easily accessible street drug in the USA is Marijuana, which is also called as Weed, or pot or Ganja and so on. The name varies in communities diversely. Surveys and statistical figures reveal us the fact that almost fifty percent of the Americans have already tried it at least once or twice in their lifetime.
Of course, the usage is allowed only in limited quantities though. So, how much is a gram of weed then in these states compared to the other states of the country? Interestingly, the costs are higher in these two states more than anywhere else is. Controversial fact it is but that is the reality though.
Good news for the weed lovers is that such approvals are in the pipeline for many other states in the country as well. When we try to find the price in the black market, in the states other than the above mentioned two, it was found to be 234 to 300$ per ounce. Whereas, the average price in the Colorado state as well as in Washington is higher. Remember, the price is for illicit recreational weed.
Just a step above the illicit item is the similar black market for the medical cannabis seeds and leaves too. This is also called as green pot. This is legal in almost twenty-three states across the country. Regardless of the price, the demand is increasing in the local communities quite dramatically over the years for both the medical cannabis as well as the illicit recreational commodity.
