The massive cost difference of marijuana in USA vs Canada

The massive cost difference of marijuana in USA vs Canada

Grasslands is the shittiest canadian weed you can get. Your also comparing 2 completely different flower “hybrid vs sativa” to say the least. Major 🤦

You're comparing 3.5 g vs 28 g


RedIsNotMyFaveColor

If you do the math, it's showing how much more it costs in the US. 3.5g * 8 = 28g 8 * $45 = $360 Vs $100 I'm really high right now. , Did I math right?


PerspectiveHuman3800

The American works out to $12.50/g The Canadian is $3.57/g So about $350/oz 🇺🇸 $100/oz 🇨🇦 But the OP should have chosen a more evenly divided picture to show that because it erroneously looks like Canada is more expensive at first glance if you aren't paying attention


RedIsNotMyFaveColor

Soooo. I was right-ish! 🤗

I was about to say... um... did they even read the weight/cost...

Yeah because 3.5 gm is so close to half of 28 gm

Not sure about in the US, but there's an excise tax on all Canadian cannabis, recreational and medical. I have a prescription and via my particular provider, it costs me $5-$11/g for dried flower (before compassionate pricing discount). My provider pays the excise tax and opposes its implementation on medical cannabis but it's possible some of that cost is recouped through its products.

Yeah, but if a canadian gets sick they won't have to go thousands of dollars into debt. I self medicate my PTSD with marijuana in WA, because the prescription costs are outrageous. One of my monthly psych meds is $550 a month; I've prescriptions for 5 .I'm unemployed because of my mental issues and receive zero help from the local government because I'm a middle aged well educated white guy and I don't fit any of their filters. I'm super happy the prices are lowish- I sell plasma for rent/utilities and there's usually enough left over that I can get an ounce or so to last the month.

(Canadian) I used to self-medicate, and it helped my physical and mental illnesses so much I decided it would be worth it to jump through all the legal hoops to get a proper prescription (pre-legalization). Even now many Canadians still choose to self-medicate because so many doctors still oppose medical cannabis, and it's not covered by any insurance anyway so there's usually very little benefit to the prescription.

If a natural product will give you what you need, I 100% support it. When that fails, try GoodRx.com for any type of price relief being uninsured at the pharmacy.

Different weights Different products Different currencies You're comparing apples to prostitutes

Technically the Canadian bud is only $80 American. Not a bad fuckin’ deal.

If this surprises anyone they haven't been paying attention at all.
