Currently, 25 states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana in some form, although only four states—including Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska, along with the District of Columbia—allow recreational marijuana use.
If you’re 21 or older and live in an area where marijuana use is legal, then you may be interested in edibles. Edibles are a healthier alternative to smoking, and although it takes longer for the high to hit, their effects last longer. This includes the pain relief quality, which make edibles a preferred choice for medical patients. Recreational users will also reap the same benefits. If you’re interested in trying marijuana edibles, start at one of these places in the U.S. where you can purchase edibles.
