Despite marijuana becoming more popular, transporting and purchasing cannabis in the U.S. is still an issue, requiring some prep ahead of time. A person cannot simply get to a place and expect to find a dispensary.

Leavenworth is a popular holiday location for many reasons, among them being that the town looks like a little Bavarian village and goes all out for Christmas, with lovely decorations and a tree-lighting ceremony in the town square.

Boston, Mass.

A person can’t walk around Boston without running into a dispensary. Massachusetts legalized recreational cannabis in 2016 and decriminalized it almost a decade earlier in 2008.

Aside from being a great city in general, Boston is also a perfect Holiday location, known for its cold weather and plenty of holiday markets, as well as for hosting the New England Christmas Festival, a definite favourite of the area.

New York City, N.Y.

Legal cannabis sales remain a work in progress in the Big Apple, but some stores are expected to open their doors by the end of the year.

That said, when it comes to the holidays, the city is a favourite for a reason. Not only is Rockefeller Square a holiday rom-com icon, there are simply a lot to take in during the season in general.

Over the course of December, there’s the Rockefeller Square Christmas tree lighting, ice skating, hundreds of holiday markets, and, with any luck, some snow in Central Park.

Big Bear Lake, Calif.

While California isn’t the traditional holiday pick for that Christmas feel, Big Bear Lake is home to the City Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and has plenty of beautiful holiday markets from which to choose. It’s also surrounded by dispensaries boasting some of the state’s best weed.

Vail, Colo.

Colorado has one of the best marijuana markets in the U.S., legalizing bud back in 2014.

Vail is also an amazing holiday location, providing visitors with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the snow, take in some beautiful mountains and get some skiing done if that’s something that their thing.
