It has come to my knowledge that a lot of people want to know the price for an ounce of weed. I will attempt to explain how the pricing of marijuana works. Generally it depends on the severity of the laws for your location. If the cannabis laws in your town are strict you can expect the prices to be high, if it is well accepted then you can expect to pay a fairly low price for an ounce of weed. If the laws are lenient people are not scared to grow large amounts of this dank herb, if they are strict laws, people will be scared to go to jail so there will be less growers around which can lower supply and increase demand. Whether it is an ounce, half ounce, or gram of weed, this rule will always be king.

The Cost for a Half Ounce of Weed
The cost for a half ounce of weed is sometimes not exactly half the price of a full ounce. In the marijuana economy, the more you buy the better deal you will get. For example, if you buy an ounce of kush for $240 don’t expect to pay $120 for a half ounce of the same weed, it may be closer to something like $140 for a half. The same rule goes for smaller amounts like a gram, an eighth, and a quarter, your always better off buying larger quantities if you can afford it to save yourself some cash in the long run.
