Cannabis is a hot topic across the United States, where 38 states have legalized the plant in some form. Researchers at Real Estate Witch recently emphasized the popularity of legal weed in their new report of the top 10 “weed cities.”

For seasoned smokers, investors and all-round cannabis connoisseurs who wish to capitalize on the best that the U.S. legal cannabis market has to offer – a market that could further flourish if the MORE Act is officially adopted into law by Congress – knowing which cities are worth visiting is a must. 

Thanks to Real Estate Witch’s new report, the hard work has been done on behalf of all the people who wish to get an authentic taste of the U.S. legal cannabis industry. Their most recent analysis ranks the best places to puff the herb according to the number of dispensaries per 100,000 people.
