A recently-published study mapped out the average cost for an ounce of high-quality and medium-quality marijuana, ranking states from most-to-least expensive:
- You possess more than the allotted amount outlined above.
- You give/enable someone under 21 with marijuana.
- You smoke in a street, sidewalk, alley, etc.
- Adults can possess up to one ounce of marijuana.
- Individuals who grow marijuana can keep four immature plants and two mature plants.
One example includes people beginning to grow marijuana for themselves and their friends, which has been legal in Vermont since July 2018. Consequently, he said legalization has impacted the Green Mountain State’s illicit market.

“State laws in one state versus another, the impacts are really more about kind of supply and demand,” he said. “And, like, how much legal supply are you creating to offset the illegal supply?”
However, he acknowledged this market is not just bound to Vermont.
Why only subscribers?
- Vermont was ranked at 13 for its average cost of an ounce of high-quality marijuana, at $346.
- The state secured the No. 10 spot for its average cost for an ounce of medium-quality marijuana, at $300.
4/20 is Saturday. Marijuana was legalized in Vermont last year with restrictions. It happens to drive one of the hardest bargains in the country.
