Percentage of marijuana users: 14.93%

Alaska boasts a higher-than-normal rate of cannabis use overall, likely in part because of its pot-friendly legislation but also because of its remote nature. It doesn’t get more remote than the northern region of Alaska, which has the second-highest percentage of pot users in the nation. Small populations in many cities within the census region mean that it doesn’t take many cannabis enthusiasts to bloat the rate of marijuana use. Nonetheless, you’re likely to find a higher percentage of pot users among the people you do meet in this part of the country.
