Maybe Sen. Evelyn Lynn is on to something: Tallahassee tops list of America's Pot Smoking Capitals

At first brush, I though Senator Eveyln was just bustin’ chops with her idea to drug-test state elected officials, but maybe she’s on to something. According to the Daily Beast, Tallahassee is #1 on the subjective list of America’s Pot Smoking Capitals.

Last year The Daily Beast ranked the nation’smost stoned cities, and Eureka, California, landed in the top spot, while Newsweek released its own package onmarijuana in America. This year, The Daily Beast again crunched the numbers to find out which communities rate highest for getting high. Many of the top 40 towns are home to large universities, where the habits of young students affect the overall atmosphere. Others are places known for strong support of marijuana legalization and taxation.

To compile the rankings, we started by looking at cities within metropolitan areas with at least 30,000 residents. We then considered statistical data as well as a subjective valuation of each city’s pro-cannabis atmosphere.

And Tallahassee ranks #1.
