This seems like the best place to post my question. With the new law of marijuana being legal on Oregon. Have you had any issues with encountering users while camping in Oregon? We're planning a trip and we don't think it will be an issue, but a co-worker went to Colorado Springs shortly after it was legalized and he said a section of town was awful to walk through.

No problems in CO. What does 'awful' mean?

Heavy smoke and a lot of open use.

Never seen that anywhere, but I don't hang around cities and pot shops. I see more vaping than anything.

We have been on the Oregon beaches several times 5his summer camping and touring. We have not seen or smelled usage at all.

Thank you for your feedback! I didn't think there would be considering that we would be camping in various state parks. I appreciate the serious feedback, including the not so serious one - "Dave's not here".

It's now legal in Calif, too, and we have not had any problems. We have, however, heard some loud drunk folks playing music. (I know they were drunk because we saw a lot of empties in the morning.)

I think marijuana tends to make the party people a little quieter than alcohol does, but I am just speculating -- I don't know from personal experience!

Renee, if you want a quiet campground, my advice is to avoid holiday weekends, and avoid areas in easy driving distance from big cities.

It is legal here but I have not noticed usage any more than usual. I go out of my way to avoid it, can't stand the smell.
