There's now a fine for public pot smoking.
Merry Christmas, stoners. The city of Seattle has created a $27 fine for when you get caught smoking marijuana in public. Don't be too upset, that's still a lot less than a parking ticket. Seattle cops are actually more likely to just give you a warning, but don't push your luck. They can fine anyone at their own discretion. Oh, and the new fines won't take effect until 30 days after the legislation is signed by the new mayor. Find out more here.
