Discussion in 'Legal Issues' started by Subject 1, Mar 30, 2010.
Simple Question. Are you?
Example infront of a cop etc?
You are allowed to unless there is already a smoking ban in place. Like a bar patio or within x distance of a doorway.*
*This advice applys to Canada only
A lot of the legal states in the US do not allow you to smoke in public if you are a medical patient.
No. That wouldn't be smart......
Some Where In Ded Land.......................
It would be a little early in the efforts to do so.
I would hold out dude...
That's asking to be harassed.
In Cali if you have your card you can light up anywhere in public, I personally would suggest somewhere discrete though just to avoid any trouble.
Yes! As long as you are not affecting other people (especially children) you can smoke medical marijuana anywhere.
I don't know you but if you ever want to try smoking in front of a cop, let me know, I'll be more than glad to join you

I don't wanna seem like a stickler or something, but do you have a source for your comment? I'm just curious, I would like to look into it more for myself and see what the specific regulations are for smoking in public.
My bad dude, heres a link California Marijuana Laws
(a) In any place where smoking is prohibited by law.
(b) In or within 1,000 feet of the grounds of a school, recreation center, or youth center, unless the medical use occurs within a residence.
(c) On a schoolbus.
(d) While in a motor vehicle that is being operated.
(e) While operating a boat.
Awesome thanks man!
lol so you can smoke while you're riding in a boat, but not a car?
No lol, its saying you cant smoke in those places listed, so you cant in a boat
Im on a boat! mother fucker luck at me cuz im riding on a boat!
The way we lose privileges is when people take advantage of them. I would do what your common sense tells you is right and wrong here. No matter what the law says you can do.
A while back I was at a concert at St. James Park in San Jose and a person next to me fired up and cop came over and started to arrest him and he showed him his Can_Med Card and was told that even with the card he was not allowed to smoke anywhere there were underage kids.
I don't know if that was State wide or just in San Jose.
As far as firing up in front of a cop?
That's why we, stoners, have such a bad rep with the general public.
Subject 1.....you said this......
I think it translates into.....
I hope that is what you said.......I was just a little confused.......:shrug:
Sorry for the interruption.....Please continue.......

No, not in Colorado.
According to Amendment 20
(5) (a) No patient shall:
(I) Engage in the medical use of marijuana in a way that endangers the health or well-being of any person; or
(II) Engage in the medical use of marijuana in plain view of, or in a place open to, the general public.
Ahah yes sir. Its a reference to a comical song.
Actually it say while operating a boat. So you could ride in one and smoke. For some reason you can't in a car though, probably because of some dumb idea about contact highs or something.
Separate names with a comma.
