Map shows marijuana use by state; highest rates in West, lowest rates mostly in South, Plains states

How much cannabis do people in your neck of the woods smoke? The Washington Post has created a map of marijuana use in the U.S. using data the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration compiled from 204,000 respondents from the National Surveys on Drug Use and Health to estimate monthly pot use among Americans 12 and older.

"The report finds that nationally, 7.7 percent of people 12 an older—roughly 20.3 million Americans—use marijuana monthly or more," Christopher Ingraham reports for the Post. "Broadly speaking, marijuana use rates are highest in the western states and lowest in the South." (Post map)
