    If you want the highest volume of weed: Denver, Colorado.

    Where to get the weed: Denver has twice as many weed dispensaries than Starbucks stores, so...pretty much anywhere?

    What to do (besides weed): Explore the 24-acre Denver Botanical Gardens, get a designated driver to take you to the top of Mount Evans so you can enjoy the mind-blowing vistas, or stop by the Molly Brown House Museum to pay homage to an unsinkable badass.

    Where to stay: Off Broadway B&B (from $80/night), or Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center Hotel (from $122.55/night). Find more accommodations here, from $63/night.

    Bookings based on a double occupancy in April 2018.

    If you prefer a remote locale: Sitka, Alaska.

    Where to get the weed: Sitka is a small city (population: <10,000) with a correspondingly small number of dispensaries. But as all potheads know, it's not the size of the toke, it's the motion of the potion.

    What to do (besides weed):Take a walk through Sitka Historic/Totem Park, a beautiful nature preserve that includes totem poles and other First Nations art and artifacts, marvel at the feathered dinosaurs at the Alaska Raptor Center, and round it out with a trip to the Sheldon Jackson Museum, Alaska's oldest museum, to look at their collection of art and artifacts from Alaska's indigenous tribes. And if you need a little something to munch on, hit the drive-thru at Grandma Tillie's Bakery.

    Where to stay: Sitka Hotel (from $110/night), or Lodgeliner Lodge and Suites (from $149/night). Find more accommodations here, from $110/night.

    Bookings based on a double occupancy in April 2018.

    If you love gambling and hate accountability: Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Where to get the weed: Las Vegas has 43 dispensaries, the better to make the Most Entertaining City in the World even more so.

    What to do (besides weed): In addition to the obvious (gambling, the Hoover Dam, and, of course, Britney), you can tour Wayne Newton's 52-acre(!) estate, lace up your cement shoes and head to the Mob Museum, or go for a hike at Red Rock Canyon.

    Where to stay: Excalibur (from $27/night), or Mandalay Bay (from $79/night). Find more accommodations here, from $19/night.

    Bookings based on a double occupancy in February 2018.

    If you love to get stoned and watch Portlandia: Portland, Oregon.

    Where to get the weed: There are well over a hundred dispensaries in the city, so you might need to do some comparison shopping.

    What to do (besides weed): Take in the foliage (and the koi) with a stroll around Portland Japanese Garden, shop local at the Portland Farmers Market, go for a hike in Forest Park (a temperate rainforest), and grab a next-level doughnut (think Cap'n Crunch or Butterfinger, to start) at VooDoo Doughnuts.

    Where to stay: McMenamins White Eagle Rock & Roll Hotel (from $80/night), or The Sentinel Hotel (from $207/night). Find more accommodations here, from $51/night.

    Bookings based on a double occupancy in May 2018.

    If your ideal ambient sensations are the smell of coffee and the feel of a drizzle: Seattle, Washington.

    Where to get the weed: Washington state was another early-adopter of legalized recreational marijuana, and Seattle is home to more than 30 dispensaries.

    What to do (besides weed): Amble through the Pike Place Market (make sure to watch out for men throwing fish), have some glass with your grass at the Chihuly glass museum and garden, and nerd out at the Frank Gehry-designed Museum of Pop Culture.

    Where to stay: Bacon Mansion Bed and Breakfast (from $119/night), or the Ace Hotel Seattle (from $129/night). Find more accommodations here, from $62/night.

    Where to get the weed: TBD, but recreational marijuana use becomes legal on January 1, 2018, so stay tuned.

    What to do (besides weed): Go on a vineyard tour in the Sonoma Valley, switch gears with some go-kart racing at the Simraceway Performance Driving Center, or fill up on olive oil-soaked bread at the Olive Press farm.

    Where to stay: The Sonoma Valley Best Western (from $119/night), or the Cinnamon Bear Creekside Inn (from $159/night). Find more accommodations here, from $119/night.

    If you have a soft spot for the classics: Amsterdam, Netherlands.

    Where to get the weed: Order off the weed menu in one of Amsterdam's "coffeeshops," of which there are over 100. (It's not legal to smoke anywhere else.)

    What to do (besides weed): Check out the Van Gogh Museum (saying "whooooa, trippy" is optional) or the Rijksmuseum (the museum of the Netherlands), then take a stroll around the city's largest park the Vondelparken. The best way to see the city is on a bike, so get a rental and do some exploring.

    Where to stay: XO Hotels Couture (from $91/night) or Hotel Alexander (from $100/night). Find more accommodations here, from $42/night.

    Bookings based on a double occupancy in March 2018.
