Canada:

“More than 13,000 patients have registered with the new licensed producers, which together sold 1,400 kilograms of dried marijuana between Jan. 1 and Oct. 31.”

1,400 kilograms = 1,400,000 grams

1,400,000 grams divided by 13,000 patients = an average of 107.69 grams/patient

Divided by 10 months = 17.69 grams/patient/month

A little over half an ounce for a whole month? Is that right?

New Mexico:

2nd quarter, 2013
Number who purchased this quarter – 13,462
Total yield – 289,338 grams

289,338 grams divided by 13,462 patients = an average of 21.49 grams/patient

Divided by three months = 7.16 grams/patient/month

How can this be right?

4th quarter, 2013
Number who purchased this quarter – 12,260
Total yield – 432,475 grams

432,475 grams divided by 12,260 patients = 35.27 grams/patient

Divided by 3 months = 11.75 grams/patient/month

Okay, I think I might be calculating this wrong, but I was trying to show the difference in the amount of medicine patients have access to (and purchase):

Canada:

17.69 grams/patient/month

New Mexico:

7.16 grams/patient/month
11.75 grams/patient/month

11/19/2013, “The report obtained by the Journal estimates a need of about 11,000 pounds annually to sustain the program. Currently producers are struggling to harvest just 2,200 pounds.”

(453.59 grams in a pound)
11,000 pounds = 4,989,490 grams
2,200 pounds = 997,898 grams

4th quarter, 2013
Total yield – 432,475 grams

2nd quarter, 2013
Total yield – 289,338 grams

One thought on “Adequate Supply? Sure, in Oz…
