The Princeton Reviews is a college admissions company in the United States of America that offers admission resources, test preparation sources as well as surveys on the American colleges. Every August, they release their survey of the best 382 colleges in America. In their diverse surveys, we have a category that they refer to as ‘Reefer Madness’ Schools. Basically, this is a category for the schools that have a high affinity for marijuana. This article aims at shedding a light on the 2017 list.
