Klonopin Street Prices
Klonopin (Clonazepam) is a popular benzodiazepine used for the short-term treatment of seizures and panic attacks. The drug has various benefits and side effects, and a high potential for abuse. In fact, in order to abuse or sell Klonopin, many people lie about their symptoms to get ahold of the drug.
There are different street costs all over the world and, in a country as large as the U.S., street prices unsurprisingly vary.
An average price for 1mg is around $2.
At their lowest prices, 1mg Klonopin pills can be found for $1 each. In some locations, 2mg can be found for $3. Users report that the street value of the drug differs from town to town. In some places, 1mg can be found for $4-5.
Some users, however, are surprised why someone would buy Klonopin illegally when the drug is not difficult to get a prescription for.
With the ease of prescription and the low cost of Klonopin even without insurance, it is no wonder that the drug has such an abuse problem.
