To stay within the law, you’ll need to consume marijuana on private property. "You cannot consume, smoke, eat, or vape cannabis in public places," according to the state Department of Public Health’s website.

You can use marijuana on private property. You cannot use, smoke, eat, or vape adult-use marijuana in public places. Property owners and landlords can ban the use and possession of marijuana on their premises. You cannot use marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, day care center, or youth center while children are present.
