Apparently baseball fans are smoking marijuana at Coors Field. So much so that a warning sign was posted, according to multiple reports and social media.

The popular sports blog, Deadspin, highlighted a tweet by @JeromeGrady that shows a photo of the sign.

CBS New York also highlighted the tweet.

“Know the law about marijuana use in Denver,” the Coors Field guide reads on the Rockies’ website. “It is illegal to consume marijuana in public. Smoking or consuming marijuana is prohibited in all areas of Coors Field, including the designated smoking areas.”

I haven’t been to a Rockies game, yet. I’ve walked around Coors Field for kicks and it’s a nice stadium. When I go to game, I’ll report back my findings on all the weed smokers.
