Can I Smoke Cannabis in a Hotel Room?

Many places we can travel to today have legalized marijuana use but what about having cannabis in a hotel room? In places like California where cannabis has been legal for 10 years or more, California law gives cities the power to make their own laws around marijuana. So you see, there may be some differences to the rules even as you travel from place to place in States like California where marijuana has been legalized for years. It’s even possible that some cities may ban cannabis entirely or ban smoking in public places, and this includes hotel rooms.

The Legalities of Smoking Cannabis in a Hotel Room

Check with the hotel before you book a room, because many hotels do not allow smoking of any kind inside the rooms — even tobacco products. It’s safer to assume that you can’t smoke weed in a hotel until you ask first.

Also, keep in mind that even though cannabis is legal in California, you can still get kicked out of any private property for using it there — including dispensaries and hotels.

How to Smoke Weed in a Hotel Room and Not Get Caught?

If you’re going to be smoking weed in a hotel room, you need to assume that management and staff know what you’re doing. Here are some tips for using cannabis in a hotel room:


  •  Put your weed in an airtight container that won’t smell up the place
  •  Don’t smoke near an open window or balcony door — the smell will seep into the hallway and other rooms
  • Use tools like pipe screens or water pipes to keep ash from flying everywhere
  •  If you have the option, use a vape pen instead of smoking flower; they don’t smell and can be used discreetly
  •  If you do smoke flower, make sure to put out your joint, blunt, or bowl properly so your room doesn’t reek of cannabis when you leave
  •  Clean up all traces of marijuana use before leaving your room
