251 grams worth more than $10,000?!?
Give your head a shake; that works out to over $40 per gram. I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that is way off the street price for pot. Even the Feds, who are now in the marijuana business, have said street prices for pot are around $10 per gram.
Why publish such wrong inflated values?
