Summer is on the horizon, and that means music festival season is about to fully pop off. While you might be under the impression that most festivals will let you smoke like at Woodstock in ‘69, we’re sorry to break it to you, but this sadly no longer the case (and that applies to all you Californians as well).

Even though festivals have to abide by the laws of the state in which they take place, smoking marijuana at a music festival is as much a tradition as having to drop last week’s paycheck on overpriced bottled water all weekend. It’s definitely going to happen, and if you’re lucky enough, you’ll be one of the ones who doesn’t get caught!

To make sure you’re as prepared as possible to enjoy your grass and favorite bands simulataneously, MERRY JANE News has compiled the top tips to successfully get away with smoking pot at music festivals all season long. From the best places to stash your weed to the proper methods of exhaling, we have you covered.

Remember, cops will be waiting to catch you slippin’, so it’s important to be on your best behavior when arriving to and leaving the festival. Check out our video above before you head out for the incredible combination of music and marijuana this summer.
