With legalized marijuana hitting DC, you may be wondering what to do in Washington DC after you light up?
D.C. is a beautiful city with plenty of things to do while Stoned.
From the monuments and memorials to the museums and shopping, there’s something for everyone in this amazing city.
Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a longtime resident, here are some of our favorite things to do while high in Washington D.C.!
Visit a Local Cannabis Dispensary First!
To start off I suggest going to a dispensary. In DC you can smoke weed but not buy it. You have to go to a dispensary and purchase a non-cannabis product, such as art, or perhaps a t-shirt and in return you will receive a ‘gift’. When you get the gift, take it back to your hotel or house and enjoy!
We Highly recommend checking out Legacy DC, not only do they offer cannabis and other cannabis related products, but they are also host to some of the DC’s finest street art to local artists.
Take a Tour of the Capital
Building or the White House. If you’re really lucky, you might be able to catch a glimpse of the president!
Note:It should be noted that you may not consume marijuana or any other cannabis products while on Federal property!
The Washington Monument
The Washington Monument is a 555-foot tall stone obelisk in Washington, D.C. It honors George Washington, the first President of the United States. Construction of the monument began in 1848, but it was not finished until 1884. The monument has been damaged by weather and terrorism over the years, but it remains a popular tourist attraction.
The Lincoln Memorial
The Lincoln Memorial is a large white building located in Washington, D.C., honoring the sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln. Construction of the Lincoln Memorial was completed in 1922 and it officially opened to the public on May 30, 1923.
Washington War II memorial
The World War II Memorial is a memorial in Washington, D.C., dedicated to the Americans who served in World War II. The memorial was dedicated on May 29, 2004, and it cost $163 million to build.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is a presidential memorial located in Washington, D.C., honoring Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the United States. The memorial was dedicated in 1997 and it covers 7.5 acres. The memorial includes a statue of Franklin D. Roosevelt, four outdoor galleries, and a water garden.
The best time to visit Washington, D.C., is in the spring or fall when the weather is mild. However, the city is always worth a visit, no matter what time of year it is! So, be sure to add these monuments to your list of things to see when you’re in Washington, D.C.!
Visit the United States Botanic Garden
What stoner doesn’t enjoy being one with nature? If you are looking for things to do that involve nature, I suggest visiting the United States Botanic Garden . It’s a beautiful garden with many different types of plants from all over the world. They also have a greenhouse which is always nice to visit in the winter.
The Museum of Science
Another good thing to do is visit a science museum. There are a few here in DC, but one that I’ve been particularly interested in going to for a while now is the Air and Space Museum . It’s filled with many things from space exploration as well as other aircrafts from around the world.
Check out a Local Event
One thing that I would like to mention is the different events that may be occurring around the city at any given time. For example, if you are visiting Washington DC in December there may be a Christmas tree lighting and parade going on.
Legacy DC also hosts weekly cannabis and art events. There you can pick up some greenery and enjoy some local events while doing so.
Visit a National Museum
Lastly, if you are looking for something to do at night you can check out a museum. There are many museums in Washington DC, but I would recommend going to at least one of them. Some of the most popular ones include The National Air and Space Museum , The Natural History Museum , or The Smithsonian National Museum of American History .
Another good thing to do while you are here is visit the National Mall . This place has many monuments, museums, memorials, etc. One museum that especially comes to mind for me is the Natural History Museum. They have a whole section of the museum dedicated to dinosaurs.
Arlington National Cemetery
What better way to take in the sights and history of our Nation than to take a trip to the Arlington National Cemetery. The site is also known as “Arlington National Cemetery”, “Arlington”, or Arlington Memorial Cemetery.
The United States national cemetery in Arlington County, Virginia. Established during the Civil War on the grounds of Arlington House, formerly the estate of the family of Confederate general Robert E. Lee’s wife Mary Anna Custis Lee, who was a great-granddaughter of Martha Washington, first American First Lady.
Washington DC is a great place to sightsee, but the beauty of our Capital doesn’t end at the White House.
Whether you’re looking for museums or monuments, there are plenty of things to do in and around the city that will keep you entertained for days on end.
Now that cannabis has been legalized throughout the city and state, don’t forget about smoking weed while enjoying some peace and serenity among nature’s finest creations!
