1. Everyone smokes weed.
As the birthplace of the Summer of Love, and all the drugs that came along with it, it is not uncommon to think marijuana is often smoked in Northern California. It is true that in cities like San Francisco and Oakland, smelling weed on the street happens frequently. Though surprisingly, San Francisco came in after several Colorado and Southern Californian cities when it comes to weed smoking, based on criteria like marijuana dispensaries per capita, number of residents that hold a medical marijuana card and head shops per capita.
