    Why is gold 31 grams to an ounce.

  24. Oso

    this is just my opinion which is like an as#*hole, We all have one. From an ole stoner the .349 gm works both ways, meaning, “What goes around, comes around” leave it alone or some wanna-be in D.C. will start some crap and they’ll try to change the weight, Should it be 28.349523125 grams = 1oz. or just 28 grams=1oz.

  25. Stonerton

    Weed expensive there, it’s $50-$60 an oz here and that’s on a bad day(or if you like that dro)

  26. 420Life

    I’m from the boot WM La
    An ounce here is dwindling. I use to get it through the years cheaper and more quantities. But here in the last 2-4 yrs the Ounce 30 g plus. Then went to 28 so now you’re lucky if oz 26 if not less. Sad if it’s bc prices on streets goin up atleast say up front n give the exact weight instead of calling it something it isn’t. But that how the game done become. Smh.. Jus to smoke..
