What Is A Weed Vacation?
A weed vacation is a trip to a state that has legalized cannabis for recreational use. The main objective of a weed vacation is to use cannabis and chill. Go on outings and activities that enhance your cannabis use. Enjoy the novelty of visiting a dispensary, purchasing legal cannabis, and use cannabis in the open.

Avoid Smoking Fines And Getting Kicked Out
Most recreational legal states have laws against smoking cannabis in public areas. You will have to do your smoke sessions in your room. Do not rent a hotel room for your weed vacation. A majority of hotels do not allow smoking of any kind in their rooms. You will receive a hefty fine if you are caught smoking in your hotel room. However, there are hotels that occasionally offer smoking rooms.
Find A Rental Within Walking Distance of Entertainment
After hours of smoking and watching tv in your rental, you might get bored. Do some research before you book your rental. Find a rental that is within walking distance of entertainment. Get super high and discover a new city in stoned curiosity. Visit a thought-provoking museum stoned and amused. If your rental is near entertainment you can safely and you’ll save money by not renting a car or hailing Ubers.
Plan Your Visit To The Dispensary
The lines at dispensaries vary greatly. In newly legalized states such as Illinois, wait times can be upwards to four hours. Do your research and plan to visit the dispensary during off-hours. Dispensaries are cash-only. Be sure to withdrawal cash from an ATM beforehand. Therefore, expect to spend a little time procuring your weed for your getaway. It will be worth it!
Do Not Transport Your Cannabis Across State Lines
At the end of your weed vacation, you might have leftover weed. It’s tempting to transport the rest of your weed to your home state. However, you might risk large fines or even drug trafficking charges. Section 812 of Title 21 of the U.S. Code, the Schedule of Controlled Substances is a big deal.
Violating this section is a federal crime. The penalties can be extremely serious. If you possess and transport less than 50 kilograms of cannabis flower, one to 49 plants, you can be charged. For a first offense, you may serve up to five years in a federal prison and a fine of $250,000 to $1 million. You may serve up to 10 years in a federal prison and a fine of $500,000 to $2 million for a second offense. Therefore, it is not worth transporting a few grams of weed.
