According to a survey from, three Massachusetts cities have made the list of best places to get stoned.

How Many Cities and Towns are on the List?

Boston made the top 10, coming in at number 8 out of 94 cities and towns.  Worcester had a decent showing on the list, coming in at number 20 and Springfield showing up at number 77.

From the list, there are SO MANY California cities and towns and Colorado also shows up frequently.  Maine and NH had zero out of the 94 listed in the article.  They only surveyed cities and towns of states where recreational pot is legal.  After that, they took in to account the number of google searches for "marijuana" and "weed," how many head shops they had and how many pot-friendly hotels and lounges were available.  (There are hotels that allow people to smoke weed in their rooms?  Eyoo.)

But Pot is Legal in Maine, right?

Right.  BUT, according to, Maine postponed the consideration of opening up social clubs until 2023.  Right now, you can only toke in the privacy of your own Maine home, so, that affected their score.

Pot in NH is Decriminalized, not legal.

In NH, according to, if you are caught with a small amount of pot, there is no jail time or criminal record.  It's treated as a traffic violation.

Why is Alcohol Legal to Buy in NH, But Pot is Not

That is a great question.  Listen, I am not a pot smoker.  It's not my choice to buy or smoke.  The smell bothers me when I got in to someone's house who has been smoking or if I smell it on someone's clothes, it kinda grosses me out.  HOWEVER, I can't, for the life of me, figure out why alcohol is legal and pot is not.  It just doesn't make sense to me, but what do I know.  I just play records on the radio....
