CANNABIS CULTURE – In Los Angeles, marijuana enthusiasts new and old can purchase at storefronts with ease, leaving one major question: where are the best places in the city to smoke weed?

Venice Boardwalk

An original hotspot for cannabis consumption, the Venice Beach Boardwalk is an ideal spot to relax by the ocean and take in the scenery whilst enjoying cannabis. One step onto the the Venice Beach Boardwalk, and you’ll immediately feel at ease. Peruse the shops and various stands, take a stroll down to the Santa Monica Pier, and hit up one of the many restaurants that line the boardwalk—there is no room for disappointment.

Once you are done having fnu in the sun, stroll around the quaint surrounding neighborhoods for some food and shopping. There’s no going wrong here.

Griffith Observatory

Offering up one of the best views in the city, Griffith Observatory is already a fascinating and beautiful spot—making it no surprise to anyone that it should make this list.

Point Dume, Malibu

Malibu is filled with plenty of beautiful beaches that are made for relaxing and fun-filled days that bleed into eventful nights. Point Dume is one of the last of the Malibu beaches along the coast, and perfect for a sunset-infused evening.

Rose Bowl Flea Market

What sounds better than a little smoking and a little shopping? Not much. The Rose Bowl Flea Market happens the first Sunday of every month, but it certainly worth the wait. Check out the vintage threads, antique chairs, and maybe even walk away with a few one-of-a-kind finds.

Your Own Home

This, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the places on this list that is a legal spot to smoke. Put on a great movie, invite some friends over, and just sit back and relax. Los Angeles has a plethora of wonderful places to explore and imbibe—and your own home should be part of this list.

In a perfect world, LA law would enable us to outwardly smoke at every single one of these locations. But here’s a silver lining: MedMen has everything you need to smoke weed and enjoy the legalized substance any way you please.
