' This is going to shock a lot of people in Vermont, but Maine’s passion for pot is higher than its granola-fed neighbor to the southwest. While recreational marijuana remains illegal, medical marijuana is available to residents, although at prices that make Oregonians shudder (17th cheapest in the country). Over 10.2% of residents admit to using marijuana in the past month—third highest in the country, and it’s home to the fourth most frequent cannabis-related Google searches.'
