It’s clear from looking at the current presidential debates that the United States is anything but united. The country is polarized, divided, stratified, separatized, and you could apply any other word that means the same thing too.

 

Nowhere is that clearer than in looking at weed prices around America. While the West Coast enjoys low, low everyday prices like a little teeny $204 average ounce in Oregon, those trapped in remote land-locked states with old-fashioned weed laws like say North Carolina have to shell out an average of $387 per zip.

The dirtier and southier you get into the Dirty South, the cheaper your weed. Florida’s bud goes for less than $300 an ounce on average. But even neighboring states in the wet hot world of the south are paying a lot more for the same bud, like in Louisiana, where average ounces ring up to about $359.

To give you an even grander idea of the disparity of weed value in the land of the free, here is a list of the top 10 most populated states in the nation with their average weed prices as per priceofweed.com.
