The Week in Weed: Cheap Drugs and Candy Bars, Hot Models Deliver Weed, Marijuana Money Funds College Scholarships, CannaCon Hits Seattle

This week, weed’s been around. Its costs (along with other drugs) were compared to candy bars by Trump, meanwhile revenues from weed in Colorado ended up funding scholarships for college students, and hot models have been getting away with delivering it to Rihanna in NYC—for years. Imagine that! Read on…

Are Drugs Cheaper than Candy Bars?

Trump said many bizarre things at yesterday’s fiasco of a press conference. One of them was that “we’re becoming a drug-infested nation. Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.” The statement set of a firestorm of hilarious Twitter responses. Of course, the fact-check for this begs the question: which candy bars, and which drugs? It looks like the going street value for marijuana is $15 per gram, heroin, about $15-20 per dose, and cocaine and meth start off at $80 per gram—while a Snickers bar is only 89 cents.

But Christopher Ingraham of the Washington Post argues that some drugs, like oxycodone and other pills, can be as cheap as a dollar a pill when sold individually. Of course, in Washington State where weed is legal, you can have your drugs in your candy bar (and eat it, too!): A 10mg THC chocolate bar made by Goodship will cost you $8.
