Smoking Weed at California Beaches gets Greenlight
Smoking weed at California beaches gets green light from Governor Jerry Brown after he vetoed a proposed bill that would have banned cannabis at beaches and parks in the state. Knowing the problems that are facing states like Colorado and Nevada which have recreational cannabis laws but do not allow for marijuana to be smoked anywhere in public, the Governor had the foresight to know that when California launches their own recreational cannabis laws on January 1st, 2018 places like parks and beaches may initially be the only places for people to partake. The Governor stated Friday “If people can’t smoke even on a deserted beach, where can they? There must be some limit to the coercive power of government.”
The bill that was introduced would have imposed a fine of $100 for people found smoking cannabis, tobacco and even vape pens in these designated areas. The state of California recently passed a law that raised the smoking age for tobacco to 21 years of age.
This vetoed bill will only concern state beaches and parks and will not have any effect on federal parks in the state which are still illegal.
Governor Jerry Brown also recently vetoed a a measure that aims to prevent marketing pot edibles to minors, saying it conflicts with a similar law previously approved by the state.
