ROI: Are Marijuana Edibles Cheaper Than Alcohol?

Abstract:

With more and more states legalizing recreational and medical marijuana, it seems fair to challenge the bias against pot.  Pot is arguably three times less harmful for both individuals and society as a whole.  On top of that it is a cheaper, but not necessarily by leaps and bounds.

James Flannel Guy ROI's picture

Portland, Oregon-based Flannel Guy ROI is a working dude and family man that likes flannel shirts and wants to achieve financial independence a little sooner than most, particularly by making smart spending decisions and living intentionally. 

His overall idea is to look at spending decisions as investments: what decisions will return the most value to you over time? 

Each scenario is evaluated over a 10-year horizon with the following summary statistics:

Present value – what is the total value of your investment and expected returns in today’s dollars?
Return on investment (ROI) – how much of your original investment will you make back?
Payback period – how long will it take you to recoup your original investment?

Why It Pays to Bring Your Lunch to Work

I bring my lunch to work every day except for the occasional Friday when I go out with my coworkers.  This is pretty hard for me because restaurants are the Achilles heel of my household budget, well, that and travel.  I love a nice meal, especially one with friends, so I figured that I would make sure the view was worth the climb.

I can now definitively say that it is worth it for me to bring my lunch to work.  I am probably saving about $1,800 per year by bringing my lunch to work.
