Feds Cracking Down on Pot Smokers in National Parks

By Alyssa Pereira

Sorry trailblazers! According to SFGate, federal rangers are cracking down on hikers carrying marijuana in national parks.

The California chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (yikes, what a title) said in an email Wednesday that “since medical marijuana isn’t recognized by the federal government, a medical note or card won’t protect you on federal park or forest land within California.”

Very much not dope.

Basically, if you’re getting out into nature while inhaling some of it, and you’re around any of the national parks—Joshua Tree, Yosemite, and even the Marin Headlands—you may be getting yourself into a bit of trouble, even if you happen to be in Washington or Colorado (remember, national parks are federal, not state lands).

Here is the organization’s FAQs for those of you feeling the paranoia kicking in.
