Beings that Colorado is one of two states to have legalized marijuana for recreational use, you’d think that we would also be one of the states that uses the drug most often, right? Well, kind of. A new map shows us the percentage of each state’s residents who regularly use marijuana.

The Washington Post’s Wonkblog put together the map that shows which states are filled with the most stoners. It shows the percentage of people in each state over the age of 12 who have smoke pot at least once a month. They got the information from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

The winners? Little old Rhode Island. Just over one in eight Rhode Islanders over age 12 smoke marijuana monthly. This is more than three times the rate in Kansas, the least stoner-friendly state, where only 4 percent of residents regularly indulge.

Colorado? It’s 6th on the list with over ten percent of residents getting high on the reg.
