Alcohol Friendly Beaches

California is known for many things, including its many beaches and the beautiful weather. Everyone flocks to the shores to play in the sand and water, to relax and have a good time with friends and to eat but not drink alcohol.

It is illegal to drink alcohol at the majority of California’s beaches.

However, those who prefer a little booze with their beach trip are not out of luck, because there are a few beaches that are alcohol friendly.

Carmel Beach

Located in Northern California, Carmel-by-the-Sea is known as a quaint, picturesque town that is even more captivating because of its alcohol friendly beach. You can have your choice of alcoholic beverage in between your surf runs while you lay on the beach in between beach sports or during a bonfire. The only rules are that the drinking must be done by 10:00 PM and you cannot have a keg.

Paradise Cove, Malibu

At Paradise Cove, beach goers are allowed to sip on beer, wine, or champagne anytime between 8:00 AM and sunset. There is also a restaurant on-site where you may order drinks and food. Parking can be somewhat of a turn off here, as the fee to park on site is a bit steep. The restaurant will validate your parking if you dine there. Otherwise, if you are adamant on hitting Paradise Cove, you will have to park further away on the street and walk.

Kehoe Beach

If you walk a half mile along the northern end of Great Beach at Point Reyes, you will hit Kehoe Beach where you definitely can bust out your alcohol, as long as it is not in a keg. Note that the beach closes at 11:00 PM so everyone must be off it by then, so give yourself a little time to make the short walk back to your vehicle.

 
In order for these beaches to remain alcohol friendly, remember to not leave a mess and not be disruptive and rowdy to the point you are causing a disturbance to others. Think of these alcohol friendly beaches as privileges that you would not want taken away. Keep the beaches clean and the fun open to others by drinking responsibly and cleaning up after yourself. Finally, remember to be mindful of how you will be getting home at the end of your beach day. Designate a sober driver or know when to stop drinking so you can sober up.

Legalized Marijuana: What To Expect

It has been about 6 months since Californians voted to legalize marijuana. However, full legalization has yet to kick in. In fact, it will not fully kick in until 2018. With that said, not many people know the timeline and what has and has not changed yet, nor do they know what full legalization really means for California.

Prop 64 was passed last year and will legalize marijuana use for adults who are at least 21 years of age. California has until January 1, 2018 to get their regulations in order because that is when businesses can begin applying for licenses so they can legally grow and sell marijuana.


The following is a list of the many changes and laws that will be taking affect at the start of next year.

  • Driving while under the influence of marijuana will be illegal, as it currently is. Plus, marijuana must be stored in a closed container when the driver is behind the wheel.
  • Most felony penalties for growing, selling, transporting, or possessing marijuana will be reduced to misdemeanors. In addition, prior offenders are allowed to petition to have their criminal record changed to reflect a misdemeanor charge rather than a felony.
  • Legal-aged persons will be allowed to carry up to 1 ounce of marijuana or 8 grams of concentrates.
  • Legal-aged persons will be allowed to grow up to 6 plants at their residence.
  • Anyone who purchases marijuana from a licensed retailer in 2018 will also be charged a 15% tax.
  • It is illegal to smoke a cigarette in a public place. Marijuana will follow the same suit. It will also be illegal to possess marijuana on school property.
  • Minors under the age of 18 would in no case face imprisonment if they were to be caught growing, selling, transporting, or possessing marijuana. Alternatively, they would have to take a drug education course and perform community service. Adults 18-20 on the other hand can possibly face prison time.
  • Because marijuana is illegal under federal law, possessing marijuana on federal property within California will remain illegal. This means that if someone goes camping in a California national park and is caught smoking marijuana, they are breaking the law and will be arrested.

These are just a handful of new regulations that California is getting ready for come January 1, 2018. You can expect that there will be more. Legalizing marijuana does not mean that it is a free for all to use. It is still a drug that needs to be used with responsibility, caution, and regards to others who are less favorable of it.
