My friends & I live in a state with legal recreational cannabis laws.
The laws are really lenient & all the people do not get in trouble for using cannabis, even in public.
As long as you are being discreet, the cops usually do not care if someone is smoking a joint or hitting a vape pen, then unfortunately, the same is not tploy everywhere. Some CA cities have odd rules & laws regarding marijuana. My friends & I went on a deep sea fishing boat while the two of us were visiting San Francisco. Both of us had our vape pen in our pockets. Both of us were trying to be discreet, however the two of us were also trying to stay medicated. I could odor someone smoking weed on the other side of the boat, however I wasn’t trying to get anyone into trouble, and when the two of us stopped & dropped anchor, the boat captain came downstairs & I heard a commotion on the left side of the boat. The commotion only lasted a few minutes & then the two of us started tying bait to our poles. My neighbor asked one of the deckhands what happened & he told us that someone was putting a pre-rolled joint out on the side of the boat. The captain did not care if the two of us were smoking marijuana, although he wasn’t going to let someone vandalize his boat with a marijuana cigarette. The native San Francisco resident had to kneel in the captain’s quarters while everyone else enjoyed their fishing. The guy did not get a refund on his currency & he was lucky the Coast Guard wasn’t waiting for him when he got back to the dock.
