I am thinking about renting out a room and have noticed ‘4/20 friendly’ on Craigslist ads. Is this legal?

Your landlord may not mind you smoking marijuana, but the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office is not ‘4/20 friendly.’ Photos.com.

According to New Hanover County Sheriff’s Spokesman Jerry Brewer, “Simply stating that you are 4/20 friendly is not against the law, even stating it online is not breaking the law. But possession of marijuana is against the law.”

“4/20″ is a slang reference to using marijuana. According to Wikipedia, it can reference a time of day or the date April 20.


What are the odds of HB 1380 (Medical Marijuana Act) being passed in North Carolina?

Is it legal for a doctor to stop writing you prescriptions for pain medication if you use marijuana?
