Middletown #39 Most Stoned City

According to a recent ranking from The Daily Beast in honor of National Weed Day on 4/20, Middletown is one of the Most Stoned Cities in the nation.  Here’s what they had to say:

Regular Users: 7.9%
Pot Culture: 7 out of 10
Arrests per 100,000 residents: 180
NORML chapter?: No

Academics: Home to Wesleyan University, which ranks No. 18 in the nation for marijuana use, according to The Princeton Review’s annual “Reefer Madness” ranking.

Seeing that Manhattan came out at #3, Boston at #4, and San Francisco at #5, it only makes sense that Wes was a major contributor to the Middletown rank.  The only other Connecticut city to beat Middletown was New Haven at #36.

    The stats they use are per capita. doesn’t matter that middletown is smaller. Also, the list is stupid. No Denver, No Ann Arbor, No Austin. Detroit in the top 40? Come on.

    it is an honor to almost beat New Haven, a town 2x as big as ours with a University 2x as big as well. Middletown––the lil’ stoner city that could!
