    I’ve seen a ton of people smoking chronic out and about, and HAVE seen someone get busted for it. What are the punishments in California if you are caught smoking in public?

    The law is vaguely written regarding public consumption of marijuana. The law as written says that you cannot smoke marijuana in any place where tobacco is not allowed, within 25 feet of entrances of buildings, or within 1,000 feet of a school or day-care. So while most everyone KNOWS that public consumption is illegal, some choose to do so anyway as a form of nonviolent protest.
    Even if recreational marijuana is legalized in a few weeks, public consumption will still be illegal, and police might even become more strict about it. Only time will tell…
    Don’t puff in public, it’s rude, and if you must – look into a discrete vape!
