LSD has been banned from medical use due to its dangerous psychological effects; however, that did not stop avid users to produce and sell this mood-changing chemical. Today, LSD is a highly sought-after illegal drug that can be easily purchased in the streets of the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia.
What is the street price of LSD?
The price of LSD ranges from $5 to $20 per dose in the United States.
LSD is cheaper in more populous cities on the east and west coasts, and more expensive in the Midwest. One dose translates to between 50 and 150 micrograms and can come in a number of forms: liquid, tablet, gel sheet, or paper tab.
The U.S.A. (East Coast, Midwest and West Coast)
The price of LSD—or as most users refer to it, “acid,”—ranges between $5 to $20 per hit. In bigger cities like New York, Boston or Trenton this hallucinogen drug can be attained for as little as $7 per “trip.” The word “trip” refers to the sensation that LSD induces upon ingestion, which usually lasts between 12 to 24 hours. As for the amount per dose; the majority of users consume approximately 50-150 micrograms during one “trip.”
In Midwestern states like Ohio, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska LSD is harder to find. That is why some users might find it a tad expensive when they are charged up to $20 per hit. However, one can always hope to get lucky and find a dealer who will charge the average cost of $10 per dose.
On the West Coast, prices are similar to those in New York and Boston, i.e. users can purchase LSD for as little as $7, $8 depending on the specific city and state.
Additionally, users have the choice between a liquid form, tablet, gel sheet, or saturated paper form of this lysergic acid.
Canada, Europe, and Australia
Prices in Canada, Europe, and Australia are similar to prices in the U.S. A user in Canada would normally pay between 18 and 20 Canadian dollars per dose, while in Europe one would pay 10 Euros on average.
The cost of LSD may not seem very high at first, but once we do the math, a user can spend up to $150 or more a week on this unsafe habit. Just imagine all the other uses those hundreds of dollars could have. Additionally, for some users money is scares, and they can hardly afford to buy one hit.
