To legalize or not to legalize? That is the question currently thrown around in the national debate on marijuana.
Legalization varies in each state: from limited medical marijuana use allowed to a full-blown pot industry raking in the money from its recreational use. But no matter the substance's legal status, there will always be demand for it.
Based on a handy map put together by Frank Bi at Forbes.com, here are the five places where the average price weed is the lowest.
5. Nevada: $265/ounce
4. Colorado: $243/ounce
3. California: $242/ounce
2. Washington: $232/ounce
1. Oregon: $204/ounce
The average cost of an ounce in four of the states where recreational marijuana is legalized (Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska) is below $300, lower than the national average of $324.
According to the data compiled from PriceOfWeed.com, though Alaska didn't make the cut in this list, it still sits pretty at $294 per ounce.
