In the meantime things like open smoking and use will cause problems for neighborhood parks plain and simple. Not everyone believes the cannabis is a good thing for this world and those are the people who will complain.
Sad to hear about a course being pulled but it does sound like it was warranted no matter how I feel about the politics behind it.
Do not mistake my remarks as an agreement with those that break the "laws" in our parks. I am all for disc golfers, in particular, going above and beyond to keep it legal in public. I nearly came to blows with one of my oldest friends when I told him he couldn't bring his bag full of beers onto the course a few weekends back.
But I still stand by my comment, the police department has better things to do than be "on call" for some neighbors who do not like other people in their private park across the street.
Now, if the school calls about a problem during school hours, then all bets are off and the offenders should be fined heavily. But I still think that the response time for this call will not be very fast...
