Have $10? Quick Guide to Weed Prices Around The World
Traveling marijuana users know that buying weed in different parts of the world can be a daunting task. If you are coming from Canada, you are at risk to be disappointed by available options and high prices. The other way round, cheap and legal weed can be a reason to travel. Either way, it is always smart to educate yourself on weed prices before you book tickets.
Here’s what you get around the world for $10:
1. Japan: 0.25 grams
Cannabis is not especially popular in Japan. Remember about draconian drug laws in the country that put users behind bars for up to five years.
2. England: 1.2 grams
Weed is widespread in England, and prices are pretty level. However, drug laws in England are still behind those in the U.S. You will not find any dispensaries, but you can always buy on the street corner for a decent price.
3. USA: 0.8 grams (on average)
In every state, prices differ. In Washington, you can get three grams for ten bucks (however, it will be a lower end product). In illegal states, weed can go up to 20 dollars per gram. In most states, your ten bucks get you one gram for sure.
4. Canada: 1.25 grams
By 2018, Canada will become the second country in the world with entirely legal marijuana. It means that you can find whatever you want for a reasonable price. Some provinces are more weed friendly than others; British Columbia, for example, is a home for the cheapest and quality flower in the country.
5. Netherlands: 2 grams
The Netherlands has a reputation of a global marijuana hub; however, weed is not legal there. The laws are fuzzy, and the chances to get caught for smoking a joint are slim. Certain coffee shops allow a legal consumption of marijuana. Marijuana status in the Netherlands makes it extremely cheap to purchase. If you are paying more than $5 per gram, you may want to find another place to buy.
6. South Africa: 2 grams
Marijuana is illegal in South Africa, but the laws seem to change due to widespread support for legal cannabis. It is not difficult to find it there, and the prices are decent.
7. Chile: 0.5 grams
Weed can be expensive in Chile, especially compared to the lower prices of other, traditionally expensive drugs. Private consumption is allowed, though public consumption remains illegal. If you can speak Spanish, you might be able to get a cheaper gram. Otherwise, it is going to be super expensive.
