According to a recently released survey from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Montana is one of the most stoned states in the country.  Their report claims that 12.21% of Montanans admit to using marijuana, at least occasionally. Not only is that figure “higher” than the national rate of 10.8%, it’s enough to rank the Treasure State as the 14th biggest cannabis consumers in the country.

Alaska residents are the premiere potheads in America, where 16.29% of residents admit to smoking weed.  The “Green Mountain State” of Vermont wasn’t far behind, living up to its nickname with a 16% statewide consumption rate. Colorado and Washington, who recently became the first states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, rank third and eleventh respectively.  New Hampshire and Massachusetts round out the top 5 stoniest states in the nation.

In spite of the growing number of Montanans who smoke pot, marijuana remains classified as a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance with recreational users facing fines and, in some cases, jail time.
