Washington

The last piece of the West Coast puzzle, Washington, has long served as a mecca for the progressive schools of thought. So, it only makes sense that it is a safe haven for cannabis users as well. The state legalized medical marijuana use in 1998, with recreational use following in 2012. While the consumption of cannabis in dispensaries and lounges is not allowed, the state is crawling with Cannabis tour operators and weed-friendly lodges, hotels, and Airbnb’s. An ounce of weed in Washington goes for $232.79.
