$27.00 Fine For Smoking Marijuana In Public

The city of Seattle is treating smoking marijuana in public at the same level as consuming alcohol in public, it is illegal and the Seattle police will issue a $27.00 fine to any individual found doing so.  The good news is… Seattle police MUST first issue any individual using marijuana in public a verbal warning.  If the individual fails to cooperate with the officers warning and fails to remove the marijuana from public view, then the officer may issue the $27.00 fine.  More good news… the $27.00 fine is an infraction similar to a parking ticket and is not a criminal infraction such as DUI (driving under the influence), thus being cited and fined with smoking marijuana in public will not end up on your criminal record!

For more information on the laws pertaining to smoking marijuana in Seattle or in the State of Washington see our previous blogs “How The Seattle Police Department Will Enforce Marijuana Laws” and “Washington State Laws – Marijuana 101” and continue to follow our blog for the latest and greatest legal news and happenings!

Rapper 2 Chainz Marijuana Case Update

Rapper 2 Chainz hired the right criminal defense attorney to defend him against possession of marijuana allegations – because as of yesterday the drug charges have been dropped!  The Maryland State judge concluded there was not enough evidence to support the allegation the marijuana belonged solely to 2 Chainz.

Remember that arrest back in February, 2 Chainz gets busted by police for possession of marijuana and is arrested while the other 6 people in his van were allowed to leave.  Hmmm, 7 people in a van smelling like burnt marijuana and only one is arrested, which happened to be the driver 2 Chainz.  Not the best decision for Maryland police to only arrest 1 out of seven, but at least they got a photo op with the rapper while they were booking him at the station!  Check out my earlier blog “Rapper 2 Chainz Forced to take Pics with Cops after being Arrested for Marijuana” for all the arrest details.

High probability 2 Chainz is still tweeting “smh” (shaking my head), despite his marijuana case victory.
