A US News & World Report article I read yesterday talks about the price:
Even leaving demand aside, taxes will already push prices up for retail buyers. The state will impose total taxes of 25 percent on marijuana plus the regular 2.9 percent state sales tax, and local taxes will also apply on top of those. At Kine Mine, a store in the small town of Idaho Springs, for example, total taxes will come to 31.9 percent – 27.9 percent in state taxes plus 1 percent in county taxes and a 3 percent city tax, according to store founder Theran Snyder.
But he expects he may have to charge recreational users even further above and beyond his medical marijuana prices to stay stocked. Medical marijuana patients can designate a dispensary as their primary center and thus become "members," who typically pay less than non-members. At the Kine Mine, a nonmember will currently pay $225 per ounce for medical marijuana. Though Snyder declines to give exact price points, he believes he may have to charge far more than $225 per ounce for non-medical marijuana to ensure that product stays on the shelves when the new law kicks in.

Pay $225 for an ounce of weed? Pay far more than $225 for an ounce? That's crazy. It's a freaking weed.
