How Much Does a Gram of Cocaine Cost Around the World

From The Economist:

THE street price of cocaine varies hugely across the world. No surprise that it is cheapest in Colombia, the world’s biggest producer of coca: at $2, a gram costs less than a Big Mac. Geography is an obvious price factor. The farther away a country from the main producers in South and Central America, and the more isolated it is, the higher the cost to traffick there. In far-flung New Zealand, a gram costs a wallet-busting $714.30.

  1. Jess,

    Their New Zealand price amuses me. I’m wondering how they got it – it seems to be cheaper in New Zealand than in Australia. It’s certainly a lot more than $US40-70, but $US700? I think not.

  2. Fussy,

    Ummm, hold up a minute, a gram of coke in the US for $40-70???? Where the hell is that? The ONLY reason I can think of that a gram of coke is $40-70 is that it has been cut SO many times, that it is so incredibly impure they don’t dare sell it for more than that less someone who REALLY knows coke buys some of it realizes what they bought as opposed to what they know they should of been getting, and well let’s be honest that dealer would be out of business IF ever seen again. You cannot buy decent coke for that amount and if you truly believe you can #1 You don’t what good coke is and #2 Boy have you been losing money.
