The added security doesn't care about your weed or SLR camera. They are about safety. It is a real issue, but not one to be worried about. But if you mouth off to the wrong security officer or refuse to let them see in your pack, you might end up on youtube.

Never saw such a mellow Sasquatch before! A young couple in front of us at the main stage were smoking a pipe very blatantly, beverage enforcement came to talk with them and confiscated their weed but then walked about 50' away and talked with their supervisor and he told them to give it back but asked the kids to not be so blatant. Win for everyone!
We did have a girl come into our camp Monday night asking for a jump so they could leave. Three chicks all obviously rolling still so we said sure, can jump the battery for you but not if any of you are driving. They said, no, none of us are driving, our sober friend is driving so we jumped their vehicle. About 5 minutes later we heard a crunch and saw the same 3 chicks trying to leave in the car graze another car and drive over a mountain of trash. Had to run in front of the car to make it stop and then got security to help us keep them from trying to leave. Security was great, nice to the ladies but said if they tried to leave they would get the sheriffs. Girls were pissed at us, said we were going to make them miss a 9:00 AM class the next morning but slept in their car for about 8 hours and headed out no doubt in much better driving condition.
By far the best security has ever been. I brought in a camelbak full of water every day and it didn't get searched once.
One day, I walked up to get searched with my backpack unzipped and ready to be looked through. The guy searching me asked if he could pat the bottom of my backpack. I said yes, he lightly tapped the bottom of my bag, and he let me through. One has to wonder what he was looking for!
