Woodstock has an international reputation as a citadel
of creativity and personal freedom. However, if you're
coming to Woodstock "with flowers in your hair"
and a joint or two in your luggage, be careful.
Woodstock authorities like to bust people for smoking
joints in public. Not too long ago a couple visited
Woodstock and brought with them a joint saved from the
early days of their marriage. They took a stroll from
their bed and breakfast to the beautiful Artists Cemetary
where they thought they would celebrate their visit
with a toke. One of them asked the other as they stood
on the hill among the deceased violinists, poets and
painters, "Do you see anyone?"
"Just that guy on a bicycle." The guy on the
bicycle was a Woodstock gendarme who arrested them for
their wedding herb.
So in the interest of public tranquility, we list the
following places in Woodstock for visitors not to smoke
