Marijuana Prices in South Florida Are Getting High, but Definitely Not the Highest

It appears as if the economy is hurting our nation's marijuana horticulturists as well -- the average price for an ounce of high-quality weed in Florida is just below $350, but South Florida is one of the most expensive regions in the state for pot.

Using user-submitted statistics from Price of Weed, the global price index for marijuana, a group called Floating Sheep put together a color-coded surface map of the country to give a feel for regional pot prices.

Cities across the country are reaching average per-ounce prices of up to $427 but some as low as around $210. Florida is on the higher end of the price scale, largely due to some South Florida pricing.

The map shows South Florida as one of the highest-priced areas in the state -- which compares to being just above average nationally -- with prices around the same as weed in the northeastern part of Florida, although spots in the Panhandle can reach per-ounce prices of nearly $500.

Between Tampa and Naples, however, the map shows that people are paying in the double digits for an ounce.

In another map from Floating Sheep -- which is likely more accurate -- they removed some of the outliers and focused on cities with a high concentration of price submissions on Price of Weed.

That map clearly shows that the area from around Fort Pierce to Miami faces some of the higher prices on the national scale.

Recent purchases submitted from the area include a $200 purchase for half an ounce in West Palm Beach on August 30, $400 for an ounce in Boca Raton on the same day, and $350 for an ounce out of West Palm Beach about a week before.

The recent user-submitted stats also seem to show that people are picking up more weight outside of South Florida.

Although many purchases in South Florida are an eighth of an ounce for $50 to $60, ounces are being sold at varying prices elsewhere.

The people at Floating Sheep say they're putting together the city- and state-level statistics more thoroughly, so we'll stay tuned for that.

Ok this is so beyond wrong. An oz of fire bud in boca raton is worth anywhere from 220-300$. I have never heard of someone paying mor than 300$ for an ounce and 45-50 for an eighth. Get your facts straight before writing a news article

The higher the price the safer the streets. Too many people are driving high, killing folks, and leaving the scene of the accident. Raise it please.

For $150, you can buy enough seeds from Canada so you never have to pay for weed again! Never have to help finance the CIA/DEA/drug cartels, never risk going to prison, just grow 4 or 5 plants in a closet or your basement. Don't get greedy, just enough for yourself and to turn your friends on once in a while. Live long and prosper!

And to think, if they just said hell with it and legalized it, think of all the money it would generate.  Not to mention jobs.  Oh an you could do away with a good chunk of the violence south of the border AND less illegal immigration.I figure IF the right wingers figure this one out, it would pass in days.

I find it both interesting and duplicitous that the media coverage casts a pall over marijuana use while advertising the going rates in demographic areas as though it's really no big deal.

Which is it, media? Take a side. I know, I know, the media is supposed to be unbiased. I think that ship left the port a long, long time ago, especially this publication. So just get off the fence already, will ya?

Demand drives prices. Prices drive death of more innocents in Colombia, Mexico etc. Grow your own or grow up.

In order to actually get the Pulitzer you will also have to report on the price of Coke and other illegal substances.

It is this type of informational reporting that will get you that much closer to the Pulitzer!

Great advice, also reputible seed banks in UK and A-Dam.  In addition you're gonna need $300-400 for lights, nutrients and supplies to get started.  There are a couple good Hydroponics shops locally - 1 just north of hardrock in hollywood, and another just south of Atlantic facing 95.  As long as you tell no one, risk is probably less then buying and transporting, for much less $.  Or you could move to Cali, get a card, and pay higher prices at the clubs then you can get here on the street.

"The Media" isn't some kind of Borg collective. Individual journalists can write about all sorts of things without having to pass it through "The Media" honchos first.
