Not all cannabis friendly hotels are created equal.
Your ability to consume cannabis on-site in your Oregon hotel will vary by location.
Some 420 friendly boutique hotels allow outdoor smoking, and some have indoor smoking lounges. There are even some that entice you with elaborate “everything but the weed” packages, including munchies and discounts to some favorite local dispensaries, but they can’t legally allow you to smoke on premises!
So if you want to be able to smoke or vape where you’re staying in Oregon, be sure to check the fine print at your specific cannabis-friendly hotel to see what their rules of consumption are.
Another tip when you’re looking for Cannabis friendly hotels in Oregon, a lot of the larger hotels have rooms that allow smoking in the room or outside on the balcony or patio. Then you can puff while you people watch from the 10th story window.
If you can’t smoke where you stay, remember... there’s always edibles! And you can have up to 16oz on you of cannabis edibles while in Oregon, so eat up.
And take a ride-sharing service, public transport, walk or rent a bike if your travel plans don’t include a DUI!
Speaking of legality, remember: Public cannabis consumption in Oregon is illegal still.
If you have visions of people walking around with bongs in their hands, dancing through the streets and singing through puffs of weed smoke like a scene from Portlandia, that’s a still a dream, my friend.
Public smoking of cannabis is not legal in Oregon, even if you think your vape pen is super discreet. Watch out for this one because you can receive fines and possibly even jail time if you’re caught puffing in public. It is however always legal to consume on private property and in residences.
