These 10 Cities Smoke The Most Weed In The World

Published on

The Guinness Book of World Records can tell you which city has the fastest internet connection, and which has the oldest restaurant, but it doesn’t say which city smokes the most weed. Luckily, researchers at Seedo — a cannabis tech company based in Tel Aviv, Israel — are keeping track for us.

Earlier this year, Seedo released their 2018 Cannabis Price Index, which includes a list of the top 10 cities that consume the most marijuana in the world. Think your hometown tokes enough to make the cut? Check out the list below and see.

10. Toronto

The only Canadian city on this list is also the largest metropolitan area in the country. Torontonians consume approximately 22.5 metric tonnes of marijuana per year. Which is about the same weight as 32 adult moose. 

9. Moscow

The capital of Russia consumes 22.87 metric tonnes of marijuana every year, which is roughly the same as tonnage as 76 Siberian tigers.

The Windy City puffs roughly 24.54 metric tonnes of marijuana every year. That’s about as heavy as three of the massive jet engines used to fly Boeing 777s in and out of O’Hare International Airport.
