Following the recent announcement that weed would become legal on July 1st, 2018, many people have wondered what we can expect to pay. CBC recently completed a study which evaluated the fluctuating cost of medical marijuana and black market marijuana in order to form an estimate.

According to CBC, we can expect the cost of weed to be around $8-$9 for a gram, compared to $10 per gram for illegally purchased weed and $9 per gram for current medical marijuana.

Interestingly, experts predict that the cost of legal weed will drop over time, expecting it to fall just below the $7 mark by 2026.
