Street prices of marijuana

If you've seen enough pot bust stories, you may find yourself wondering, "Just how exactly do they know that school bus full of pot is worth exactly $15 zillion?" Turns out - hey, the authorities kind of just guess!

When San Rafael police raided an indoor pot farm last month, they seized 600 plants and estimated their street value at $800,000.

Yet when the Marin County Major Crimes Task Force raided an indoor farm in Ignacio days earlier, they seized 224 marijuana plants and estimated the value at up to $1 million.

One estimate pegs the street value of each pot plant at $1,333, the other at $4,464. Why the big discrepancy?

"There's no exact science on this stuff," said San Rafael police Sgt. Dan Fink. "There's so many factors involved."

Wait - there's no exact science on this stuff? Good God, you mean, we're just arresting people and throwing them in jail on the basis of... of inexact non-science???

Ahem, sorry for the shrill. What I mean to say is, "Boy, isn't that curious!" At any rate, I'd be curious to hear from those of you who might have ever purchased pot in your lives how these California prices stack up against your neighborhood:

Prices vary accordingly. Sgt. Rudy Yamanoha of the Marin County Major Crimes Task Force said low-grade marijuana sells for about $340 a pound, mid-grade for $750 a pound, and high-grade for $2,500 to $6,000 per pound.... But Lynnette Shaw, director of the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana in Fairfax, said the $6,000-per-pound figure is highly inflated because the legalization of medical marijuana in California has brought prices down. "The most a pound would cost on the street right now - the very, very, very most - would be $4,800 a pound," she said.

What do you mean, you don't buy pot by the pound? I'm so confused.

it all depends on what state you are in and how good the weed is.for example, white widow,nothern lights,white demon,el nino,white rhino ect. are all exotic and can go in the south east for 7 grand a lbs. p.s. hydroponics dont make the weed stronger or taste better,plants a much better grown outside in dirt and to me it taste much better.

What! They make it up as they go along ... ?!?!

"Wait - there's no exact science on this stuff? Good God, you mean, we're just arresting people and throwing them in jail on the basis of... of inexact non-science???"

A gem of comedic common sense.
