Cannabis, Money & Trouble

Cannabis, Money & Trouble

The only trouble between cannabis and money, stems from a single problem that cannabis is illegal. Since cannabis is illegal, all cannabis prices including Medical Marijuana are dangerously inflated by its extremely over priced Black Market value.

I recently read that many dispensaries adjusted their pricing up to the Black Market Price to stop "flipping" the selling of Medical Marijuana for street price Black Market Price. So we see that Medical Marijuana Prices can and has been adjusted by the Black Market, which has Marijuana Prices in the thousands of dollars a Pound.

Now lets look at a few items that are legal and sold in the free market. I really love a great cup of coffee and it is a dried herb so I did a Google search for gourmet coffee by the Pound.

Gourmet coffee Google Shopping: high to low - the most expensive 3 are:

Jamaica Blue Mountain: Mavis Bank Estate Coffee 1 lb Whole Bean $49.99

Kona Coffee 100% Pure Coffee, 1 lb. $49.67
All Day Gourmet Coffee - Hawaiian Kona Fancy $37.95

Now we have seen a pound of Marijuana cost are about 50 times more expensive than a pound of gourmet coffee. Since most Marijuana ends up being sold in small quantities like quarter and eighth ounces, this puts the price of Marijuana even higher.

Lets take a look at the price of a pound of gourmet tea, which is another common dried herb.

Once again the 3 most expensive on Google Shopping:

Organic Sencha Ise Green Tea - 1lb $85.99
Mighty Leaf Matcha Loose Tea, 1 lb. Bag $84.99
Tavalon | Black Tea | Keemun, 1 pound bulk bag $80.50

I am sure there are more expensive Gourmet Coffees and Teas. I based my Marijuana Bud price @ $2,500 a lb, though I know it can be quite a bit more expensive.

I did find one dried herb in the same price range as marijuana. There is one slight difference, a single Marijuana plant can weigh 10 pounds.

Saffron flower


The Herb;
Saffron, the most expensive spice in the world, has sold in recent years for as much as $2,700 per pound! The price tag is so high because it must be harvested by hand and it takes more than 75,000 threads, or filaments, of the crocus flower to equal one pound of the spice!

There it is, the reason Marijuana is dangerous. Prohibition makes it so Damn Expensive. Thanks to greed and its outrageous cash price, Marijuana is now the cause of everyday violence .
End prohibition and make Marijuana SAFE!

Free cannabis,
End Prohibition!
