Quarantine caused by the global outbreak of COVID-19 is forcing people across the world to find ways to entertain themselves.

In Michigan, people are lighting up.

According to a Twitter survey conducted by the health blog bodynutrition.org, Michigan residents are smoking marijuana more than any other state during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Analysts used trends software with direct access to geotagged twitter data to arrive at the conclusion.

More than 200,000 tweets since March 1 were tracked, specifically tweets and hashtags about using marijuana, including phrases such as "smoke weed," "get high," and all related slang terms, were considered.

Michigan legalized recreational marijuana in November 2018 and the market, and regulation, has continued to develop since.

Overall, the southern half of the U.S. has the most activity when it comes to smoking weed, with the exception of Michigan, which was the number one state overall.

1. Michigan
