LA Times Answers Burning Question: ‘Can You Smoke A Joint At The Hollywood Bowl?’

FILE: Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles. 1965.
  • Los Angles Times feature writer Adam Tschorn said the reader question was asked several months ago as part of his first-timer’s guide to visiting dispensaries.
  • Smoking is allowed in three designated areas at the Hollywood Bowl.
  • Los Angeles County owns the venue so cannabis smoking would technically be illegal because it violates state law.
  • However, a rep for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, which manages the property, told the newspaper: “If someone was smoking a joint in one of the designated areas one of the house staff or security would ask them to stop.”
