I live in western WA and I am sick of the stoner culture here. What states should I avoid and where should i go? The thing is I want a liberal state that hasn't got a stoner culture which is kinda hard to find!!!!

North Carolina is a southern state that is getting a lot more conservative as times passes, but the major urban areas are actually pretty liberal and don't really have a "strong stoner culture" vibe. Asheville is probably a safe exception, but I'd definitely recommend checking out Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, or Winston-Salem.

Well all states do, but Colorado obviously and a more slowly developing but still ahead of the game Washington, though Colorado will likely be on top for a while. I imagine a dark horse state in the South will eventually legalize recreational and offer a less taxing business model for it, only a matter of time. California has the most historically well known pot culture over several decades in terms of notoriety. California is also pretty much ground zero for the marijuana crops the DEA would want to go after. Meanwhile it's still a schedule 1 at the federal level so who knows.

Might want to stay away from any of the Western states, especially Colorado, California and Oregon.

This was literally discussed no more than a few months ago. For the sake of answering the question:
Most Prevalent:
California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon.
And no, Texas is not on the same level, let's not go there again.
Least Prevalent:
Utah, states from the South perhaps

They spend millions rooting out a few mountain grows while the CIA brings in heroin and tons of other stuff is being smuggled up from the south. Drugs are cool if the government owns them, not the citizens of the nation.

While WA State has legalized pot, there are many cities (mostly in Eastern WA), that do not allow it. For example, you can not buy it in The Tri-Cities. Walla Walla, about an hour to the southeast, is set to open up a shop soon.

Same thing here in Yakima. No pot shops are allowed in the city. The county voted against legalization. Best of all (for someone like me who is anti-weed) there is no pot culture here to speak of. While I'm sure some people smoke it, it's not a big thing here at all. I don't even hear anyone talk about it and I never smell it anywhere (like I hear is very common in Western WA).

The OP wouldn't like it here though because this region of the state isn't liberal. It kind of goes with the terittory...liberal places tend to love their weed.

Perhaps the OP would like the Twin Cities. I have a friend who lives there who's strong impression is the marijuana culture isn't as big there as the west coast...yet it's a liberal place
