Based on another weed that is grown and distributed I provide

the following information:

The average pack of cigarettes contains 20 grams of tobacco. Unless you are like I was 20 yrs ago, the average joint contained 1/2 gram of pot. On average, my joints contained 3/4 gram of pot. The average blackmarket size of 1 oz of pot is 28 grams. Unless you were like I was, if I was to sell pot (hypothetically), I would sell IAW the troy oz 31 grams. Most sold at 28 and pocketed the 3 grams.

This being the case, and based on the average user, you can get approx 55 1/2 gram marijuana cigarettes per 1 (28 gram) oz of pot.

Pack of smokes in Texas average price $6 / 20 cigarettes = .30 cents per smoke.

Lets be nice and say the state/fed illegal taxation of the product would make them .50 cents per device. Also, that each marketing packaged (pack) would be half the size of a pack of cigarettes and contain 20 x 1/2 gram adminstration mechanisms.

ERGO: 20 x .50 = $10.00 per shipping container and packaging device.

WOW. What a profit the States and Feds could make on illegally taxing the stuff.
