Big photos below.
We're accustomed to seeing Denver top marijuana-centric city lists. So we were definitely surprised to come across Elite Daily's "10 Best U.S. Cites For Stoners To Live In" and discover that while Denver was among the two Colorado communities to make the cut, and despite upcoming 4/20 activities drawing tourists from around the globe, it didn't rank first -- and the one that did (as well as another entry, too) isn't actually a city. Continue to count down the photo-illustrated list, featuring excerpts from Elite Daily text; click here to check out the original item.

Number 10: Oakland

Oakland may be known for its violent-stricken areas, but it's the city's acclaimed Oaksterdam University that has them placed on the list. If you are brave enough to make the trek into the city, then you will surely be impressed. The stoner-friendly district of Oaksterdam is known for its weed cafes, clubs' countless dispensaries and even a school for training people in weed. This is where stoners are cultivated....
Number 9: Portland, Maine

The East Coast may not exactly be the friendliest in terms of weed, but Portland, Maine is a haven for potheads everywhere. Not only does it have some pretty good buds -- thanks to the favorable climate -- but the law is pretty lenient and will often let you rock. The relaxed city is the perfect place for any retiring stoner to rest his loins and smoke the days away....

Why is this going on FB when it has comments from last April ? Headline needs to be corrected...#1 Humboldt County only shows a picture of ferns...where's the city ? Denver is #2 ? Thanks for not listing our secret patch from the movie Rolling Kansas.

Humboldt county isn't a city but all the cities in that country are representative of this. I love Colorado but come one people the emerald triangle is something special .

Which pretty much means Denver is number one since Humbolt isn't even a city. Who made this list?

And Westword staff are all prime examples of why pot, while maybe should be made legal to prevent government intrusion, shouldn't become a staple in your diet!

Denver sucks! It's the rest of Colorado that makes this state so beautiful and worth living in. Denver is our ghetto capital.

This state has so much more to offer. Pot is just a added perk, to those that are into that sort of thing.

It's very sad...Colorado used to be known for the mountains, the Broncos, the friendly people, the healthy lifestyles....but now??

Smoking pot isn't much of an accomplishment. Pretty much anyone in any city in the US can smoke pot if they have $5.

Everyday the quality of journalism on this website gets a little worse. That list looks like it was written by a 6th grader.

Fact: people are going to smoke pot legal or not. People do choose not to smoke pot even though it is legal.

stupid, of course the best city for a stoner is where it's legal and the stoner can legally purchase and consume socially.

I am so sick of hearing about weed! Shouldn't 4/20 consist of dudes sitting on their couch, playing video games, and eating massive amounts of pizza?

I've never been able to find Humboldt County City. Where is it? Or is the author really that stupid?

Humboldt deserves the win, they base their entire culture around the nug. Denver we understand that there's more to live than getting high all the time.
