Reader: Pot is cheaper in Nebraska than Colorado

greetings.from.nebraska.565x300.jpg
A recent Comment of the Day in which a reader suggested that people from Nebraska need to get high in order to stand living there prompted posts from those who love and loath the Cornhusker State. But the following note strikes a nice balance between these positions -- and adds an interesting claim about a substance that Nebraska law enforcement takes very seriously.

Tonia Martin writes:

Henry Doorly Zoo ranks in the top ten in the nation. Denver's isn't ranked. Lake Mcconaughy, the biggest lake in a four state region, draws plenty of tourists, especially from Colorado. Yes it is flat here. But there is also plenty of beauty all around us. Just because you all changed your laws doesn't mean that our state has to change the way they operate. That being said, I do love my mile high vacations. I'm just not stupid enough to bring the stuff back with me. It's cheaper here anyway. ;)

Isn't pot cheaper everywhere in the world than it is in Colorado, where it is legal to apply a tax that is equal to the cost of the product. Looks to me the law makers got a chance to try the product before they signed the bill.

Westward, I really wish you would quit dragging Nebraska into your black hole. Nebraska this, Nebraska that...most times it's about pot. Sick of hearing it. I'm not anti pot but I am quickly becoming anti Westward. You have the reporting skills of a snail. Grow up and leave our state alone.

Hey casey, I'd bet the legalization of cannabis sure has helped your property values

Very sorry about Pilger. Lots of us think of you as our sister state. And, we have tornados too, just not as bad as yours, usually.

Everything I ever bought in Nebraska (supposedly) came straight from Colorado. Good shit. Can't complain.

Wow. Tell that to the people who lost loved ones and their homes the past few weeks due to the tornadoes that "God" sent to Nebraska.

No Se Ph I've been smoking since before you were born Jr and I guarantee you its just as potent if you took it to a lab tested it for THC they would be very close the best weed ever in the world Colombian mid-70s 50 bucks an oz have seeds that's back when it was 10 bucks an ounce I am a honest connoisseur without any hype

Living in an area that's at the forefront of a cultural revolution isn't exciting? I mean yea it's just pot now but it's really about civil liberties and progress. Growing up entails maturity and understanding so perhaps your should take you own advice.

I am from Nebraska and now live in Washington State. Have never had to pay for weed out here. Then again everyone is a grower here too.

Legalize it and tax it. Wasn't that the point?

I get ounces in colorado for less than $75. You can pay almost that same amount for a 1/8th back home in Nebraska. Sorry my medicine isn't cheaper in Nebraska and the Colorado quality blows Nebraska out of the water

Keep your flakey dealers who deal other drugs, never answer the phone or show up where the say, always have some shady ass motherfuckers on their smelly couch. I'll keep my awesome pot store with regular hours and at least 10 different kinds of weed.

One can still get schwag for 50 bucks an ounce in this town and guess what just as potent as anything in the pot shop not as tasty but just as potent

Duh? All prices vary on who one knows regardless of where they are. That's why people still go out to CO to get cannabis to bring here and sell at those prices. The point was that those prices are cheaper than what most people are paying legally. You buy bud for cheap, cool, I'm proud of you - but you're also in CO, that's like braggin' about how much cheaper seafood is on the coasts.

Ed Haas

Those prices are still way more than I pay legally here in CO.

God hates Nebraska, that's why there's tornadoes. How about you tell that to the faces of the family needing to bury their 5 year old, to the entire town of Pilger that has to rebuild. Must you forget our state has been extremely supportive of Colorado during your own natural disasters. Despite our state's ignorance on the pot issue, some of us are pretty good folks.

I'm out in Columbus (Northeast Nebraska) and it's usually $50 1/8th, in Omaha it ranges from $35-$45 depending on who you know. You could get a zip for $230 or less out in Omaha. Lol @ all these people who have no idea what they're talking about judging from afar. If you are not here then how could you possibly know if it's brick weed (it isn't) or not?

I'm from Nebraska. Trust me, it's Nebraska dirt weed. It looks like Colorado buds, but it's compressed. Therefore being distributed from a brick. It's NO WHERE near as good as the Marijuana in Colorado. People there will swear up and down that it's Colorado bud, but I have been living in Colorado for over ten years to know that o it's NOT Colorado bed Bud.

That's the comment of the day? That may be the very thing I needed to finally block Westward. You over post and at least 50% of your posts are about pot. I mean it's just pot. Grow up! It's not that exciting.

Wow, Rumple. Considering a town was nearly destroyed there, you must be one hell of a stand up guy to make a comment like that. Your family must be so proud. Hopefully they never die from a tornado. Ass.

Not true. I know of black market growers who take their product up there because it sells for twice as much. Unless if course you're talking about Mexican brick weed.

Sarah Castle

Most black markets are cheaper, including the one in Colorado. The exception, I believe, is Texas....their black market prices are about what we pay at the dispensary. (it's not brick)
