It turns out getting high in Minnesota and North Dakota can cost you.
That's at least according to a new report by Forbes magazine that ranks the cost of "high quality" recreational marijuana (also known as "weed") in all 50 states.
Minnesotans who enjoy the green stuff pay well above the national average for it, about $341 per ounce. But lighting up is more costly for our next door neighbors – at $387 per ounce, North Dakota's weed is the most expensive in the country, Forbes says.
The nationwide average is $324.
The magazine says it used data from PriceOfWeed.com, where fans of pot can anonymously report the cost of marijuana in their area, whether they buy it illegally or through a dispensary.
The big (and not horribly surprising) revelation of the report is that weed is cheapest in states where recreational pot is legal, with Oregon boasting the least-expensive marijuana in the country at $204 per ounce.
"The prices suggest lax marijuana laws could correlate to cheaper prices," writes the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, also noting Louisiana – which has "some of the toughest marijuana laws" – has the sixth most expensive pot in the country.
In case you're wondering, the exact cost of the good stuff in Minnesota is $340.88, according to PriceOfWeed.com. "Medium quality" runs around $270, and the bottom-level weed will set you back $198.
Of course, recreational marijuana is not legal in Minnesota, but medical cannabis becomes legal here on July 1.
