I like the irony that your average climber who smokes weed has 10% body fat, while the typical RV touron is a pasty fat-ass from the midwest who will cost the health care system a lot more.

If I were a LEO, I would bust people for drinking sodas and fast food.

Leo's were saving that cash cow for now, apparently. THis is NOT a new "trend", or whatever.

would they bust John Muir for taking a crap in the woods?

and if he did crap in the woods, would anybody smell it?

legal in WA, most potent weed grown near Mt Rainier,

but no smoking in Mt Rainier because it is a NP, wtf, over, jus sayin,

Yosemite needs the Buffalo Soldiers again,

they would give you a warning and then twist one up,

worst crime ever committed in the Ditch was done by a park ranger,

Yosemite has exclusive jurisdiction - meaning federal laws apply, not California laws. Only federal agents, primarily NPS rangers have authority and enforce the laws they want. By contrast, Grand Canyon has concurrent jurisdiction and the Coconino County Sheriff gets to take over any investigation, search or rescue he wants. The NPS at Grand Canyon has to inform the Coconino Sheriff of all major incidents. If I can remember back 35 years, Yellowstone is the only other National Park with exclusive jurisdiction. The table of arrests might reflect the different types of jurisdiction in the parks listed...

When I was an evil Valley Ranger 35+ years ago, there was a huge emphasis on busting people for drug use. I felt there was not enough emphasis on busting people wrecking the natural resources or on violent crime, especially rape & sexual assault.

It is all very confusing and travelers never consider jurisdictional changes and how they should alter their behavior.

Hmm, #310, I did not know that. I thought YNP was required to enforce state law in addition to federal law. Or at least that was what a ranger told me after he pulled me over for expired registration, but perhaps I misunderstood.

Repeat for the ten thousandth time: It's a plant.

LEOs get bored, their bosses get hard-ons, and campers get stoned and stupid.

For whatever reasons that they are upping the heat, it's a shame they have to target the ones who pay to enter the Park (virtually everyone). It seems kind of unfair of the Feds, but they're Feds, so give it up.

They should drop the penalties to probation only. They (NPS) don't need the piddly amount they get from fines and don't let them tell you different. And don't anybody tell me different. You know I'll just duck it, cuz I hate arguing on the net. If you can PROVE the NPS is suffering from money problems THAT much, OK.

All we climbers and lurkers have to do is to take care of our own selves when we are in LEO's yard.

Which means look both ways and, like Davey Crockett said, make sure you're right, then go ahead.

There are lovely places in the taluses to doob it--why smoke on the valley floor?

And at risk of hypocrisy, how can anyone be so lame as to smoke in their vehicle while on the road in the Park nowadays? Of course I used to do it, but we were all young, dumb, etc., and the scene was much different.

So despite Werner's assertion to Donini that it's all the same in Yosemite Valley, I beg to differ in this social aspect. But it is the same old dirt and trash and so forth.

It used to be a game, man. Now they're serious. And it's still just a friggin' plant.

edit for cheers: Dingus, you amaze. I didn't know you were that HARD! A one-armed attempt on Fairview? Tripoddin'.
