Quebec Pot is the Cheapest in Canada



As more and more places decide to legalize the selling and use of marijuana, prices of pot are constantly fluctuating. Depending on the economy and where they are getting their supply from, different locations can have drastically different prices. According to a new study by SurveyMonkey, Quebec offers the lowest price for weed in Canada.

Key findings

·      The national average in Canada for a gram of marijuana is is $6.83
·      The Northwest Territories are charging significantly more than the rest of the country at $9.35 per gram
·      Ontario was one of the pricier big cities coming in at $7.38 per gram, followed by Prairies ($7.25), Atlantic ($7.04), and B.C. ($6.93)
·      The cheapest weed can be found in Quebec, where the average for a gram is $5.89
·      Canadians reported that the price would be lower if they purchased a greater amount of it. The average price when only buying one gram was $8.36 whereas the price per gram dropped down to $5.48 when purchasing 28 grams at a time.
·      The average price for medical purposes was $7.21 while recreational marijuana was reported at an average of $6.78 per gram

Methodology

This Surveymonkey online poll was conducted from January 25 to February 28, 2018. It is based on responses from 17,139 people who consumed cannabis during this five-week period. Estimated prices included grams ranging from $2 to $20 and prices outside of this range were treated as outliers. The poll is taken among a sample of self-selected subjects and could include statistical biases.

The majority of responses received were from people who used cannabis for non-medical purposes. Most respondents also reported being daily users of cannabis and indicated that the marijuana they were purchasing was high quality. Very few respondents said they were getting low quality pot.

More SurveyMonkey polling on marijuana usage and opinion

SurveyMonkey users have conducted many surveys about the use and public thoughts of marijuana in today’s society. Results have reported findings such as 27.7% of respondents tried marijuana for the first time when they were 17 or younger and that 60% support the legalization of marijuana.

I.M.G. Playlist 1


I haven't posted once since school started and I apologize. Life is hectic right now, between school, college applications, my job at Brookstone, and Destiny, I haven't made time for this blog. So for my 3 readers who are incapable of finding music on their own, I have found a solution. Every 10 (good) songs that I find, I will make a playlist and post it to the blog. I'll tell you the must hears and the notable projects they come from. First up starts with Noname Gypsy's new single, "Dizzy." I found Gypsy after her collab with Chance and have been impressed with everything I've heard since. Then there's "Envy" by Clique, a song with a heavy drop that I heard on Vine (yes, I am ashamed). There's the hauntingly beautiful "Come Back For Me" by Jaymes Young and a new track from the Andre 3000-esque Eric Biddiness (What up, Seven?). There's also a new banger from my favorite west coast duo Audio Push. Finally, there's my favorite, "Human" by Jon Bellion. Bellion is part of Visionary Music Group (Logic, QuESt). He recently dropped his new mixtape, The Definition, and I would definitely recommend it. His upbeat and unconventional production along with amazing vocals and lyrics will show you why he is one of the fastest growing artists right now.

Must-Hears: "RAILROADS DOWN 2/ INDEPENDANCE DAY", "OTW", and "Human"

Saba-Scum


I've said it before and I'll say it again, Chicago's rap game is by far the best right now. Although the west coast's T.D.E. is the best group, the talent coming out of the Windy City is countless. Saba is probably in my top 5 though. I haven't been able to stop listening to his mixtape ComfortZone since it came out a month ago, but it wasn't until recently that I realized how much I love the 7th song on the album, "Scum." It's always stuck in my head and always puts me in a good mood. The unique rhythm and melody on the song is a perfect example of the innovative music coming out of Chicago and the most impressive part of it all is that Saba produced the track, along with many others on his fantastic mixtape.

King Green-Nothing


King Green of the RDGLDGRN trio tries his hand at some solo work. Still rapping over unconventional, heavy instrumental beats, Green discusses his dreams and aspirations while sampling Office Space in "Nothing". Looking at his solo work it's clear to see why RDGLDGRN have been so successful thus far. Each member is incredibly talented and sound just as good on their own. Check out RDGLDGRN's new song "Cornbread."

Jon Bellion-Munny Right


Even if you don't know Jon Bellion is you're probably already a fan of him. Bellion has found his biggest successes as a songwriter in the past, including Eminem and Rihanna's megahit "The Monster", which just hit 200,000,000 views on Youtube. However, if you've been paying attention you'd know that Jon Bellion is not someone who will be kept in the background. Last year he came out with his spectacular mixtape The Separation with Visionary Music Group, the label that hosts Logic and QuESt. "Munny Right" is about the New York artist's journey to his recent success. On top of incredible lyrics (he's a songwriter first), he adds impressive vocals, a blend of pop and hip-hop, and some great production he did himself. Watch out, you'll be hearing "Munny Right" on the radio every day pretty soon.
