Legal pot price as much as 80 per cent more than illicit

Statistics Canada says the average cost of a gram of cannabis from the illicit market continues to drop as legal prices rise. The government agency says the average price of an illegal gram of pot was $5.93 in the second quarter, down from $6.23 in the previous quarter. The cost of a legal gram of weed was $10.65, up from $10.21 in the previous quarter. That's nearly 80 per cent more than the average price of illicit weed during the second quarter. Statistics Canada based these conclusions on price quotes gathered using its StatsCannabis crowdsourcing application between April 1 and June 30. Statistics Canada urged caution when interpreting the data, as the quotes are self-submitted and the number of responses are limited.
