America’s Best (and Worst) Colleges for Getting a “Higher” Education


Gone are the days when college students only selected their schools based on campus size, graduation rate, and accreditation. Though still important benchmarks, today’s students contemplating a higher education have a slightly more nuanced set of criteria. While some students prefer universities that focus on careers in political science, economics, or chemical engineering – others would simply like to be surrounded by a like-minded student body.

Rolled out in advance of the 2018 school year, a report from the Princeton Review has just unveiled their list of the 20 best colleges for students that enjoy relaxing – when not studying – with marijuana.

Ranked from 1 through 20, the Princeton Review surveyed 137,000 students at 382 colleges, asking them, “How widely is marijuana used at your school?”

Hardly your average American “University,” Oakland’s Oaksterdam U. provides a lofty alternative for those budding entrepreneurs that would like to head straight into the industry they love.

About Author

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.
