Comment: The black market...

(See in situ)


The black market...

is the free market. With no taxation or regulation beyond it being banned, the price is set by the market. Part of the cost is the risk associated with government interdiction. If the risk is reduced with legalization, the price will drop as new suppliers enter the market.
What is the price per ounce where it is legal and unregulated?
