Thankfully, in every state in America you can buy marijuana. It is said that 40% of American’s have smoked marijuana at least once in their life. Some (like yours truly) prefer to smoke more than just that one time.
CelebStoner has an article featuring which states in the union have the highest percentage of marijuana smokers. It turns out the tiny state of Rhode Island beat out the other 49 states to be crowned the biggest stoners in America by having 16.12% of its population 12 and older smoke on at least a monthly basis. However, Vermont came in a close second with 15.75%. Then, it drops off a bit at the third place state, New Hampshire, which had 13.82%.
Personally, I live in Michigan, which came in 10th place with 11.91%. That makes sense to me. I live 45 minutes away from Detroit and that’s where everyone I know gets their bud. It’s never out of stock, always cheap, and its always quality.
Also, is it just me or does Alaska seem ridiculously high on this list? They came in 4th place with 13.79%. Alaska’s current population is 686,293. This means 94,639 people are smoking reefer with Russia in their backyard. Is it even possible to hot-box an igloo?
The one state that seems low on this list is Hawaii. It came in 38th place with a sad and confusing 9.04% stoner population. Its the fucking Aloha State for God’s sake! Hawaii is all about island living; Surfing, eating pineapples, chilling on the beach, and smoking some good weed. Apparently stereotypes are not always true.
In last place with only 7.17% of its citizens smoking, is Utah. I can’t say that this is surprising, considering 60.4% of the state’s population is Mormon. I guess if you’re Mormon you are too busy wearing magic underwear, banging your multiple under-age wives, and being racist to enjoy ripping a bong-load.
