The 10 Best U.S. Cites For Stoners To Live In
Stoner sustainability: it's one of the most pressing issues of Generation-Y today. Why should we have to run and hide our true emotions (from the cops) just to smoke a little pot? Better yet, why can't we find quality buds in our own backyard?
These are all questions millions of Americans are forced to ask themselves everyday. Unfortunately, many areas throughout the country are just dreadful living environments for stoners. They are forced to adapt, conform and hide their true selves when all they want to do is kick back and burn a fat ass blunt.
To those of you who find yourselves in this predicament — do not fret. There are cities built by the fabric of marijuana to accommodate potheads with everything that they could possibly need. I'm talking strains, munchies, entertainment and more. Don't live the life of a lonely stoner in 2013.
Relocate to a place that you will find true bliss and happiness in everything you do. Come to peace with your inner-soul and discover who you really are… by hitting the bong over and over again. Don't worry about the police, overpricing or anything else that kills your high. Educate yourself and ensure a better future.
