Would love to smoke and hike. Although you do have to be careful in national forests and national parks. A friend got stopped by some rangers for having mmj. He showed them his recommendation, but they said it didn't matter since he was on federal lands. He got his weed taken and was issued a citation. Still, it's not a huge issue, just something to be aware of especially since you would have a potentially large group walking through the forest toking weed....lol. Still, I'm up for it!!!
