Thats A Lot Of Joints!


Recommended Posts

Seattle -- Figuring out how much marijuana people use has been one of the trickiest, and most important, questions facing the bureaucrats who are setting up Washington state’s new legal pot system.


Underestimate demand, and marijuana fans might stick with their black market dealers. Overestimate it, and the surplus legal production could wind up being diverted out of state, or to kids.

Now, researchers working with the state’s official pot consultant think they have their best look yet at cannabis consumption in Washington — aided by a novel survey aimed at figuring out how much the heaviest users of marijuana burn on a typical day. In a study released Wednesday, a RAND Corp. team figured that Washington’s roughly 750,000 marijuana users will have consumed between 135 and 225 metric tons of the drug in 2013.


The median figure they came up with is 175 metric tons. That’s more than 6 million ounces, enough for around 340 million joints, and more than twice what the state estimated before voters approved Washington’s legal weed law last year.
