Even though it is really legal to smoke recreational marijuana in San Francisco, it is still a crime to smoke and drive and that includes riding a bicycle.
I did not realize that it was illegal to smoke recreational marijuana and operate an e-bike, but the police made sure to stop and supply me the information along with a tick.
My friends and I went to visit San Francisco for a week-long holidayâ€¦ While we were in the city, we opted to go to a marijuana dispensary. The people I was with and I bought a lot of items from the marijuana dispensary and the woman behind the counter knew that it was our first time. The people I was with and I made a joke about just having come from the airport; No a single told us that it was going to be illegal to use cannabis in public. My friends and I decided to rent a couple of ebikes from a shop in downtown San Francisco. The people I was with and I wanted to see everything and it was much easier than walking. While we were riding around, I decided to get out a marijuana joint. My neighbor and I were resting at a red light waiting to cross a street. The people I was with and I were smoking a marijuana joint and a police officer was on the other side of the street; She started flashing her siren and lights and then she got in front of our path. She gave each a single of us a $25 ticket for smoking cannabis in public and she educated us on the town laws in San Francisco. Thankfully, the ticket wasn’t too costly, but she should have given us warning.
