Denver has a population around 700,000 people.
- It is one of the top 20 most populous cities in the entire country.
Denver is located east of the Rocky Mountain range. It is located in the north central part of the state. Denver is in the mountain time zone along with Wyoming and Montana. Since that area is heavily populated, that means there are higher prices on nearly everything in the region. Food at the grocery store is more expensive and so is dining out at a restaurant. Even the price of dry cleaning and laundry services are more expensive. The price of real estate is more expensive in the city of Denver and the cost of living is generally higher as well. Even the cost of recreational marijuana is higher in Denver. I’ve driven all over Colorado and I have purchased recreational marijuana from several different dispensaries. Denver has some of the highest prices on recreational marijuana and I believe it is due to the large population. There are more people buying products and they can charge higher prices. The Average cost of a 1 gram indica joint at any dispensary in Colorado is $13, but the average cost of a one gram marijuana joint at any dispensary in Denver is $15. That is a clear indication that Denver is a city where things cost more than average. That doesn’t stop my friends from spending time in Denver. It is one of the places where the nightlife is hopping every night of the week, especially during the football and basketball seasons.
