Map: The price of marijuana in every state

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

It’s the law of supply and demand in action: When a commodity is illegal, it tends to become scarcer and its price rises on the black market. Make it legal again, and its price will fall.

That’s been the case for marijuana, as this map by Frank Bi of Forbes shows. Marijuana is now a lot cheaper in the states that have legalized it than in the states that have not.

The map shows the average price of an ounce of high-quality marijuana in each state. The data is crowd-sourced via PriceofWeed.com, a website where people anonymously submit the cost of weed in their area.

Nationally, the average price of an ounce of weed is $324. But in four states that have legalized or decriminalized pot – Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Alaska -- the price of an ounce of weed has fallen below $300. Oregon is the cheapest, where an ounce of high-quality marijuana goes for only $204, almost half the cost in North Dakota, the most expensive state.

Seattle could close some medical marijuana dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

SEATTLE - With Washington state overhauling its medical marijuana law, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray says the city is planning to shutter dozens of dispensaries.

Murray on Tuesday announced plans to require a new special business license for marijuana establishments, akin to those required for taxi operators and pawn shops. Under the mayor's plan the businesses will be required to obtain the licenses by July 2016.

Murray said he hopes the new legislation will prevent pot sales to minors and also prevent abuse of the medical marijuana products.

The Mayor estimates about half of the city's currently unregulated marijuana establishments could be forced to close, under his new regulations.

"It will preserve access for patients who need medical marijuana, while protecting the legal retailers from being undercut from unfair and unlicensed competition," he said.

The Mayor's proposal is an effort to bring the city in line with new state rules, recently signed into law by the governor.

Washington To License Roughly 400 Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

marijuana washington state felony drug possessionThere are medical marijuana dispensaries spread all over Washington State. Many of these establishments have been helping patients access medicine for a long time. Despite these medical marijuana dispensaries being good neighbors in the neighborhoods they operate in, the State of Washington is trying to shut most of them down. The State of Washington announced recently that it would approve roughly 400 medical marijuana dispensary licenses when they are available. PerThe Joint Blog:

On July 24th, the Washington State Liquor Control Board will be renamed the Liquor and Cannabis Board, and will be tasked with deciding which of the state’s currently operating medical cannabis collective gardens – which are forced to close by July 1st, 2016 – will be allowed to become licensed and legal outlets.

According to the Associated Press, the Board will use a merit-based system to decide which outlets to license. The Boardestimates that 825 outlets will apply for a license, and they expect to approve about half.

First dibs on licenses will go to those that have been in the medical cannabis industry since before 2013, have paid their taxes and have applied for a recreational cannabis license.

When I see caps on dispensary licenses, I can’t help but wonder why there aren’t similar caps on pharmacies? Or retail locations that sell alcohol? Or cigarettes? After all, pharmaceuticals, alcohol, and cigarettes are all more dangerous than medical marijuana. If we are going to apply the same logic across the board, All three of those types of businesses should have licenses capped too. But, as usual, marijuana is singled out, and now patients get to either pay more at a recreational outlet, go back to the black market, or go without unless they are lucky enough to frequent a dispensary that is lucky enough to get a license. Although, I expect prices at dispensaries to go sky high after this all shakes out.
