Survey Discloses the Most Marijuana Consuming City in the US

A little over 147 million people around the world smoke weed. Most of them live in the United States. Based on statistics from the Center for Advancing Health (CFAH), New York City smokes about 62.3 metric tons of weed every year. This makes it the world’s largest city for annual cannabis use.

At 45.8 metric tons per year, Sydney, Australia is far behind the rest of the world. But the United States doesn’t stop marking its territory at #1. Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston are the next three places in the top 10. Texas is the only city out of the four where marijuana use for recreational purposes is still banned and under strict control.

Cities in Europe were also on the list. Even though it’s against the law in all three places, Rome, Prague, and Vienna are thought to have some of the world’s top 10 weed users. Japan’s Tokyo and Canada’s Toronto were both on the list. Even though two towns from each country made the list, the prices of weed in Canada and Asia are very different.

At $5.90 a gram, Canada has the cheapest marijuana in the world. Tokyo, on the other hand, has the most expensive weed, at $33.80 a gram. People who use cannabis can get it for the least amount of money in Portland, Oregon, where it costs $7 per gram. It costs $19.10 a gram in Washington, D.C. to buy weed there.

The average price per gram of weed in Miami, which doesn’t have recreational marijuana yet, was $9.30. This put it at #39 out of 51 cities. The study also found that legalizing weed directly drops its prices by about 11.13 percent on average.

Here is the full top 10 list:

  • New York (62.3 metric tons/year)
  • Sydney (45.8 metric tons/year)
  • Los Angeles (35 metric tons/year)
