Index Watch: While the Kind, Mids and Schwag indices held steady in December, the US Price Index finished the month $9 above its previous average. Both the US Price and Mids indices closed well above their respective year-to-date averages (US Price +$15, Mids +$10). Once again, Kush was the most submitted strain of the month. That makes 11 first place finishes and one first place tie for Kush in 2013.
