If you’re a professional joint smoker, if we may say so, then you know that you can’t have a joint wherever you are! Part of this unspoken rule of joint smoking is because of some regulations that are in place that prevent you from smoking in certain areas.
However, the other part is more important! Namely, the place where you smoke your joint must be perfect and contribute to your high. After all, you can’t enjoy a joint in a crowded or too noisy location, right?
Believe it or not, the place where you smoke can drastically affect your experience – unless you smoke in your room, where you’re the most comfortable. As such, here’s a list of the best spots in LA where you can enjoy a joint and have the most relaxed high of your life!
Elysian Park – Angels Point
First of all, Elysian Park comes with all the views that one would like to see during and after smoking a joint. For example, Angels Point gives you a view over downtown LA while managing to “squeeze” the entire Dodger Stadium within it.
You could simply gaze away in the distance, breathe in and out, and let yourself carried away – while chilling. Not to mention that, from some areas, you also have a view over the entire city and outskirts of LA.
If you don’t hate to exercise a bit for your high scenic views, then you should definitely give Baldwin Hills a shot. At the end of a 15-minute walk up a long set of stairs, you can find the hilltop that hosts a breathtaking view.
There, you’ll be surrounded by nature and by a few to no people as the location is not that popular – but it all depends on the time of the year. Also, there will be no loud sounds that would disturb your high!
Hollywood Bowl Overlook
As mentioned, we’ve only included the places that aren’t too crowded so that they don’t ruin your high! As such, our next suggestion is the Hollywood Bowl Overlook.
It is not as famous as other LA observation spots – but this makes it ideal for those who want to enjoy a joint! The Overlook offers you a view of the golden hills that surround LA, as well as a cool breeze for you to enjoy during summer.
Even though this park is quite known to both locals and tourists, the fact that it has over 4210 acres of terrain ready to explore makes it wonderful for the people that want to search for the perfect joint spot.
Some people like to go the extra mile when choosing a place to smoke their joint! As such, Griffith Park, with its heights of over 1625 feet and variety in terrain, will provide you with the view and the place for a relaxed high.
You may know this particular overlook as one of LA’s best picnic spots – especially due to the amazing view of the San Fernando Valley. Naturally – it can also offer you a relaxed high, especially if you’re here in the evening.
The beautiful view, with all the lights glimmering in the distance, will contribute to your experience. Not to mention that you also have the chance to see some local wildlife and get stunned by it – we know, you know, that happens a lot after a good joint!
Universal City Overlook
If you’re a resident, then you should have a joint at the Universal City Overlook. Even though you may come across tourists and vans here during the day, mornings and evenings make for a really chill and quiet place.
The Overlook introduces you to the Universal Studios, with the rest of the city unveiling behind them, ending with hills and mountains that surround it on the horizon. It is clearly one of the most relaxing (mini)panoramic sights of the entire city.
The Grove Parking Garage
If you don’t want to get out of the city – or out of your comfort zone – too much and you’re near The Grove, then we have good news for you! The parking garage of this building has an amazing rooftop at the end of its six levels!
Once you get up there, you’ll be blown away by a view of the Century City and the Hollywood Hills! You can either sit or stand, look around, look down at the Grove village – simply explore all of your surroundings while you’re in full relaxation mode.
People here say that Palisades Park is a place where you can do all sorts of activities while enjoying the scenic spots around you – no matter whether you have a picnic, a morning jog, and so on.
As such, it goes without saying that you can freely enjoy a joint here and relax in one of the park’s areas. On top of that, it is said that the most magnificent sunsets of LA can be seen from this park – so, you wouldn’t want to miss such a view while you’re high!
The Bottom Line
Naturally, there are a lot more places – with both scenic views and a chill atmosphere – that you could visit in LA. And it’s up to you to discover them.
As mentioned, while Palisades Park and Griffith Park are quite big and offer scenic views at every corner, you have to find the perfect place to do so. Who knows, maybe you feel better surrounded by brushes and looking at the vast desert during dusk rather than looking towards the city lights.
You can try some of the spots we’ve mentioned and see where you feel safer and better. Once you find that perfect place in LA to enjoy a joint, you can simply sit there and relax – and maybe, just maybe tell your friends about it to share the fun.
