On January 1, folks were lined up (just like for the MJ’s), for 5 hours to purchase their first bulk, with the most expensive strains selling the quickest.

The Breakdown

An eighth of an ounce of marijuana, which would have normally sold for as low as $25, was fetching anywhere between $35 to $70, after taxes. With the average price being around $65.

Prices were also increased by the new 25 percent tax — 15 percent excise and 10 percent sales — on all marijuana purchases in the state that voters approved in November, along with any other local jurisdictional taxes on top of that.
