Upon further thought, I think that the case may be that potheads aren't necessarily a problem, but if you are in a bad area anyway, those kind of people are probably smoking pot and doing other drugs as well. Maybe this is the kind of bad area that the OP was referring to...?

It's now legal in Calif, too, and we have not had any problems. .


In Calif. there has a significant increase in the number of people being robbed/shot at in their homes due to people going around town looking for marijuana to buy or steal. There have been cases there people looking for drugs have gone to the wrong address of a home.

Well the biggest problem for us that live here is not the smokers but the smell of the crops in the ground this time of year. Between the Weed and the Hemp farms you can hardly draw a breath that isn't slightly skunky.

Thank you. Not necessarily bad area, because we would not stay in a place that is obviously bad, but bad people. Just because it's not legal to do does not mean that they won't do it. I think we'll be fine.

I asked in order to be aware and avoid it, not to do it!

We just finished a trip through a lot of states where weed is legal (plus Canada), and many of the parks had signs at the front desk that said more or less the same thing:

We know marijuana is legal here, but please don't smoke it outside.

This isn't too different from the "dry" camps that don't allow alcohol.

As far as camps go in Oregon, it's not Sodom and Gomorrah. You should be fine.

In our travels, we've found usage in CG's about the same in states where it's legal as in states where it's not. When it was legalized, the place we noticed the usage increase here in Colorado was skiing. Seems a lot of out-of-state people want to experience the Rocky Mountain High!

I'm not sure what the OP's concerns were but we've found alcohol to be at the root of unruly campers far more than those getting high.

What's interesting is that I've discovered a significant number of Coloradoans in their 50's, 60's, and 70's partake, mostly at home. Haven't heard if they get an AARP discount! [emoticon]

I second the idea that use in campgrounds hasn't changed since legalization.

Although when visiting a college town, I noticed that I smelled pot smoke on the street about as often as I smelled cigarette smoke or saw someone drinking beer. It may be technically illegal to smoke in public, but I don't think anyone cares.


3/4 timing in a DIY van conversion. Backroads, mountains, boondocking, sometimes big cities for a change of pace.
