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....

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.

"Why Elite Daily says Denver isn't number one..." Because these lists are made annually and they need to change them even if cities really don't change that much year to year. Same reason Most Livable City lists are bunk.

Too long, didn't read - the marijuana-related shit you constantly publish has officially gotten boring Westword ... just my opinion.

Good. Everyone needs to move to Humbolt County instead.

If other states allow even limited retail sales of cannabis, expect Colorado and the "Queen City of the Plains" to pall as cool places very fast.  Our Mayor is just finishing a tour intended to disabuse Europeans of any notion that Denver is such.
