Denver Tops Poll As Country’s Best Weed City

News Room

As one of the top metropolitan cities in the country, Denver boasts a host of attractions—Coors Field, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Denver Art Museum and many breweries. Yet, according to a poll jointly conducted by Real Estate Witch, an online real estate platform and cannabis information and resource site Leafly, the Mile High City has just been named the best weed city in the U.S. for 2024.

Last year, according to the same poll, Denver slipped to number two but now thanks to its number of dispensaries, four times the average city, the city is back sitting pretty in the top spot.

The metrics that were used to determine the ranking included the following: legality of cannabis, dispensaries per 100,000 residents, cannabis-prescribing doctors per 100,000 residents, average rating of dispensaries out of five stars, affordability of high-quality weed, fast food restaurants per 100,000 residents and local hiking trails according to the AllTrails database.

The poll uncovered some very interesting findings:

*While Denver is the best weed city, Louisville is the worst;

*Kansas City is the most improved weed city, rising 13 spots from No. 22 in 2023 to No. 9 this year;

*Missouri legalized recreational weed just two years ago, but Kansas City already has double the number of dispensaries per capita as Los Angeles, where weed has been fully legal since 2016;

*Sacramento has the most affordable pot prices while for the third year in a row, Washington, D.C. has the most expensive weed; and,

*Baltimore has more cannabis-prescribing doctors than any other city, with nearly 14 per 100,000 residents;.

According to the poll the top ten weed cities are: 1. Denver, Colorado 2. Portland, Oregon 3: Las Vegas, Nevada 4. Buffalo, New York 5. Baltimore, Maryland 6. Phoenix, Arizona 7. Seattle, Washington 8. Sacramento, California 9. Kansas City, Missouri 10. Providence, Rhode Island.
