MT Ranked As 6th Best State For Hippies

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The number of peace loving, tie-dye wearing people living in Montana puts the Treasure State on the map as one of the best states in the nation for hippies to roost. A study published by the real estate search site, Estately, ranks Montana as the sixth best state for hippies.

Rankings were determined by measuring the per capita of communes and co-ops, and stores selling hemp and tie-dye products. It also looked at the percentage of facebook users who express interest in the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Phish, tie-dye and peace.

Vermont topped the list at number one. Idaho rounded out the list at number 10. Montana, if you remember, was the site of last year's annual Rainbow Family Gathering
