In a recent survey the District of Columbia ranks 6 out of 51 in Marijuana Usage by State, with 13.81% of D.C. residents using the drug in the past year.  Northeastern states (Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Massachusettes) round off the top 2-5, with Alaska taking the top spot with 15.83%.  Surprisingly, Maryjane seems to be somewhat more acceptable in the Land of the Midnight Sun than cigarette smoking and heavy alcohol usage.

  1. When was this survey conducted? If it happened when Tom Nurmi, Jr was in town, the results might be skewed in favor of the ganj.

  2. It’s hard for me to understand this without a good definition of “a” and “the”

  3. You’re wrong about my brother living in DC. Unless by “brother,” you mean my uncle Kelly, in which case you’re also wrong.
