Montana reigns in at number 17 in the nation for the most Marijuana use among states according to The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Who came in at number 1?

Number 1 on the list is Alaska. Both Oregon and Washington beat Montana at 6th and 11th respectfully. Alaska, like Montana, has enacted a Medcial Marijuana act that allows patients to legally by state law acquire and use Marijuana. I also found that Marijuana in Alaska has been decriminalized. According to information found on, one is not punished for having an ounce or less. This relaxed mentality is most likely the cause for Alaska coming in at number 1 on the list.
