The Top 20 Stoner-Friendly Colleges of 2020

Every August, The Princeton Review releases its survey of the Best 382 Colleges in America. Among the many categories is what they call “Reefer Madness” schools, which essentially means campuses with a strong affinity for marijuana. Northeast schools dominate this year's list, with 14 schools and Skidmore College returning to the top for the first time since 2014.

Skidmore College is the No. 1 stoner college for the first time since 2014.
