If pot was legalized, i was just wondering if prices would go up or down. Im thinking it would be mass-produced, and corporations would make so much of it that prices would be high at first, but after a few years, prices wouldnt bemuch more than a pack of cigarettes. Also, do you think that they would have filters on them? A few cigarette companies have considered the possibility of legalization, and have plans for making something like “a pack of joints”. Also, how high quality would the bud be? Would lesser companies like KooL and Newport have mids or lower, and higher corporations like Malboro and Camel have dank? Would they make blunts? Another thing, what do you think the legal age would be? Tobacco is age 18, but that would not do anything to you if you smoked too much, except kill you. Alcohol is 21, and that gets you fucked up. Would it be age 18, since its similar to tobacco, or 21, since it has psychoactive properties? Everyone comment with ideas, i wanna know what you think.

Im not sure, but I hope they make blunts and have the best weed ever. Actually, Im not even sure it would be mass-produced, worse yet it probably wouldn’t be legalized in every state, ME living in alaska it probably would, I know it used to be and on the last ballet it was almost made legal, so just wait to see.
Surverys say that by the year 2003-5, pot will be even more common than it was in the 60’s and 3x as potent.

just look up what it is in amsterdam. if your confused about the exchange rate, compare it to something you know, like a how much a can of coke is in relation to a gramme or whatever you have.

Cannabis has been vastly decriminalised here in the UK and if the current government ahve their way then it will probably be legal within the next few years, most of Europe will probably follow suit.
As far as prices go, the government would make an absolute fortune out of the tax they would put on a packet of ‘Marlboro Green’ or whatever they called them. I’d expect to pay about 15 for a packet of 20 joints. Not bad value and you knopw that the weed is gonna be so much cleaner and so much more controlled, your not gonna get ripped off by dodgy dealers, you won’t have to worry when your dealer gets put in jail etc.
From a smokers point of view it makes perfect sense.

The deal is if it was legalized which for sure should be, i dont think it be mas produced, but i do think the prices would rise significantly based off the fact that the government will tax the shit out of it. But people will still pay to be able to blaze in front of a bitch cop. Waiting for the day when you can order a Big Mac and a mid-grade fattie with extra THC.

In the US a pack of joints would probably be.. $20. maybe more.
