Put some smoke in the air—the unofficial first days of summer arrive with Memorial Day May 27, and America’s 36 weed legalization states stand ready. 

Campouts, road trips, flights, and barbecues all require the right accessories, and that includes the ganja. The midwestern state of Ohio might see its first legal sales in June. New York’s first indoor-grown weed hits dispensaries. And California keeps hitting new heights. Leafly rounded up some staff and freelancer picks with our unmatched data to crush Memorial Day. 

Check back often as we add more picks in the coming days.
