New Britain ranked as the 20th most expensive city in the U.S. with an average gram of  cannabis costing $10.80 The city with the most expensive average gram was Washington D.C. with a price of $19.10 and the least expensive is Portland, Oregon at $7.

The international pricing is all over the place with prices varying wildly. In Japan, a gram will cost you $33.80 and the least expensive is Montreal at $5.90. Who uses the most cannabis? That distinction goes to our friends down the road in NYC. New York goes through 62.3 metric tons of cannabis each year.


Hey New Britain, pull yourself together! Do you know how obnoxious it is to live in Connecticut? The least we can ask for is the ability to get high at a reasonable cost. We have garbage weather, ridiculous taxes and over the top boredom, folks need their weeds just to get through the day.

For the record, I'm not a cannabis user, it just doesn't agree with me. I'm speaking up for my fellow man, my cannabis using friends throughout the State of CT. I personally know 81% of all cannabis consumers in the Nutmeg State and I love them. I envy their chill perspective and their ability to rise above the little annoyances of life. I wish and hope that my personal chemistry will change so I can partake and relax a bit.

P.S. If these numbers are different than what you suspected it may be because these numbers are a mix of legal and illegal sales and consumption figures.

Wildlife Expert Shares Connecticut's Top 5 Most Dangerous Animals

To come up with the 5 Most Dangerous animals in Connecticut I consulted with an expert. Her name is Jen "The Zookeeper" Kotkin and she immediately took issue with the phrasing "the most dangerous." I mean she knew what I was angling for but made clear to me that these animals are only dangerous when approached, protecting their cubs and food, etc. She told me: "wild animals aren’t out there looking to start fights, and take the flight versus fight route whenever possible." 

Without further adieu...Cue the scary music....These are CT's 5 Most Dangerous Animals
