Survey: Portland, Oregon Is Best American City for Cannabis

April 14, 2023 · Ganjapreneur

survey published Monday by Real Estate Witch found Portland, Oregon is the best city for cannabis in the U.S., while Birmingham, Alabama ranked as the worst. Among cities where cannabis is legal for adult use, Richmond, Virginia was the lowest-ranked, followed by Virginia Beach and Washington, D.C. 

Portland earned the top spot due, in part, to the affordable cannabis prices in the city, where an ounce of “high quality” cannabis costs about $210 – about $106 less than the national average ($316). The survey found that an ounce of high-quality cannabis in D.C. costs $590 – 87% more than the national average.   

Portland also had the second most dispensaries per 100,000 residents – 13.7 – which is nearly 4.5 times the national average of 3.1. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma had the most with 48.7 dispensaries per 100,000 residents.
