Even with pot prices at all-time lows, people will still search for the best bargain and Forbes Magazine saw it coming. The publication recently analyzed marijuana price tracker website PriceOfWeed.com and came up with a ranking of all 50 states based on how expensive their best marijuana is, whether it was sold through dispensaries or the black market.
As expected, the states with legalized recreational marijuana have the cheapest pot, with Oregon leading all states at an average of $204 per ounce. That’s more than $100 less than the national average of $324. Alaska, Colorado, and Washington sell their tops shelf flowers at less than $300 an ounce and that goes for mostly all states within the western U.S.
Once you cross Colorado’s eastern border, marijuana users can expect to pay over $300 an ounce, with Forbes warning people to avoid North Dakota, which sells the most expensive pot in the U.S. at $387 an ounce. And finally, there’s one place that’s actually legal, but isn’t necessarily affordable. That’s newly legalized Washington D.C., where an ounce of pot goes for $346.
