Spring has officially begun, and that means the most important week of the year is drawing closer: spring break. The traditional week where people across the country blow off steam by making up for all of the partying they’ve missed so far is bound to be even crazier this year. Well, if you’re one of the lucky people to visit any of the green-friendly destinations here in America, that is—and we have a few more states to add to the list this year.
Our nation’s capital and the eight states that have legalized recreational marijuana (Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington) will be prime destinations for those looking to smoke up with a little less paranoia than people living other places, like a particular area in New York. But just because weed is legal in these states, it doesn’t mean it’s just a cannabis free-for-all. There could be varying restrictions between the different states, including how many ounces of green you can carry. Don’t assume the police are going to be sympathetic if you’re holding 2.5 ounces of recreational weed in a state that only allows an ounce.
So, we’ve pieced together your go-to playbook for enjoying a cannabis-filled spring break while ensuring you make it back to your day job without a hitch.
