New York allows cannabis smoking anywhere cigarette smoking is permitted, and also permits the possession of up to three ounces of flower. However, just because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s always a good idea. Rolling up on the train, lighting up on the street, or going on a buzzed adventure can all have consequences. We encourage you to practice good cannabis etiquette before your next trip downtown. Some tips include being aware of your surroundings, avoiding crowded areas, and not disturbing other passengers. Edible lovers and lightweight smokers should also be cautious, as edibles can hit all at once, and last for hours. Lastly, be aware of where it’s illegal to smoke, such as parks and pedestrian plazas. As long as the cannabis community consumes respectfully, it can continue to enjoy the new freedoms granted by the MRTA.
