Ten Examples of What an Ounce of Pot Costs Across Colorado

The amount dispensaries charge for an ounce of cannabis in Colorado varies radically from place to place.

As evidence, check out the latest Colorado numbers from PriceofWeed.com, which uses a crowdsourcing approach to gathering its data.

The priciest figures for high-quality marijuana are more than twice as hefty as the lowest ones — and the farther a buyer is from the Denver metro-area (or, in one instance, Colorado Springs), the likelier he or she is to pay a premium price.

Of course, the term "high-quality" is imprecise, and costs vary from place to place in any community with multiple dispensaries. But the digits still indicate that importance of location, location, location.

Count down the prices in ten communities, arranged from high to low and accompanied by the date of the submission and photos from our People of the Cannabis Cup 2015 slide show. This info is followed by PriceofWeed.com estimates for the average price of marijuana in Colorado as a whole.
