Yes, if everyone involved in the growing, harvesting, trimming, packaging, distributing, and retailing of marijuana donated their time and paid expenses out of their own pockets, the prices could potentially be that low.

Just because some have the ability to grow plants, doesn't mean the farming industry has gone out of business. Also, marijuana is legal here, and it costs about $40 per 1/8th ounce. (for high quality)

To be fair, prices are coming down, and will go lower once some of those large farming ops complete their switch over to buds. It's still a hands-on product though. Unlike, say, tomatoes, each individual bud needs to be carefully trimmed to remove all leaves. People doing that typically want to be paid for their time.
