The Number One Spot
Our research first led us to Cannabis Report World, which ranked the states with the most marijuana dispensaries per capita. Can you guess the number one spot? It’s not California…or Colorado…or Washington. It’s Oregon! According to Cannabis Report World, Oregon has 16.5 dispensaries per capita. I lived in Portland for many years and can attest to this: there’s practically a dispensary on every main street.
While some of you may have predicted Oregon as the winner, we bet you can’t guess second place. No, seriously, this one blew our minds. It’s Oklahoma! Freakin’ Oklahoma! It has 15.6 dispensaries per capita, followed by freakin’ Montana (specifically Missoula, a college town) with 15.1 dispensaries.
At first glance, you may not think of Oklahoma and Montana as marijuana-friendly states. It’s true that recreational use has not passed yet but patients with certain qualifying conditions may access marijuana for medical purposes. And it sounds like they’d have a pretty easy time getting it!
