New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Palm Springs (CA), Portland (Oregon), Austin & Dallas (Texas), Twin Cites, Madison (WI), Chicago, Washington, D.C., and the rest of New England would be considered as liberal meccas. Denver and Atlanta are somewhat liberal in the middle of all conservative parts of the state. I am not sure about Salt Lake City due to strong Mormon culture but one friend of mine who lives there said it's liberal in progress of gradually reducing Mormon's power in the city.

SF and Portland are the only cities that are truly liberal in America (using somewhere such as Amsterdam as the gold standard for liberal)

All the others mentioned are wannabe liberal

So prostitution and open cannabis use are the litmus test for 'liberalism'? What a narrow application of the term!

Also, for what its worth, marijuana is actually more legal in the U.S. due to the advent of medical marijuana laws in many U.S. states, than it is in the Netherlands where it is totally illegal everywhere (just highly tolerated).
