Weed may be legal, but Columbus is still a long way from taking off as a 420-vacation hot spot, per a study by Upgraded Points.

The big picture: The metro area ranks 49th out of 50 for the number of marijuana-friendly short-term rentals on Airbnb and Bud and Breakfast, a similar site that caters to vacationing cannabis users.

Zoom out: Unsurprisingly, three Colorado cities — Boulder, Denver and Colorado Springs — are among those with the highest concentration of pot-friendly rentals, per the study.

  • Burlington, Vermont; Las Vegas; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Portland, Maine, also top the ranking.

The intrigue: There is a glimmer of good news for any cannabis-toting travelers heading our way.

  • The smoke-friendly units that are available are the cheapest in the country, averaging $127 per night.
