10 States You’re Most Likely to Get Busted with Marijuana In

Marijuana may be legal in only a few states, but that doesn’t mean every state where it’s illegal enforce their laws equally. Some states, like California, turn a blind eye towards people using cannabis. Meanwhile, other more “traditional” states take a hardline policy towards the drug.

Here are the 10 states where you’re most likely to be busted for marijuana, based on arrest rates per 100,000 citizens:

10. Missouri: 334.8 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

9. Mississippi: 346.98 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

8. Tennessee: 363.8 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

7. Maryland: 374.6 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

6. South Carolina: 381.6 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

5. Wyoming: 399.5 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

4. Nebraska: 421.3 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

3. Illinois: 448.6 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

2. Louisiana: 450.8 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

1. New York: 577.3 marijuana arrests per 100,000 people

While most of these states would be considered more conservative states, two of the top states are Illinois and New York, strongholds for the Democratic Party. So party affiliation seems to have little correlation with marijuana arrest rates.

But if you want to be safe using marijuana, it’s probably best to stick to a state where it’s legal.
