Smoking cannabis in public spaces including parks is now illegal in Nassau County.
County legislators have voted unanimously to ban the use of marijuana on county-owned locations including beaches, parks and sidewalks.
The new law, backed by Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, will fine violators $25. The amount of the fine was set by the state.
Curran said signing this legislation will “ensure the County’s public spaces are suitable and safe for all residents.”
