In the stands of professional football games, we’re conditioned to expect and appreciate behavior that is not typically allowed in other public venues. Severe drunkenness, shirtless men tapping into arts and crafts, and lewd insults hurled by grandmothers and pre-teens alike. During Saturday’s NFL playoff matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys, fans added a new extracurricular to the spectator’s playbook: Openly smoking copious amounts of cannabis as the Rams coasted to a first round victory.

According to a report from The Ringer’s Bryan Curtis — and various observations from social media smell detectors — the LA Coliseum was awash with the stench of weed from the tailgate to the final whistle, with both Cowboys and Rams fans sparking up at will from the comfort of their sold out seats.

“I’m not saying you catch a whiff of pot at the Coliseum,” Curtis wrote after Saturday’s game. “I’m saying that, last night, Section 26L was like sticking your head in a pot campfire. It was amazing!… At the Coliseum, everyone just lit up — joints, cigars, everything.”

Of course, cannabis has been legal in the Golden State for more than two years, but that doesn’t mean you can get high wherever you’d like. Outside of private residences and a few designated consumption lounges, smoking pot is still banned in a majority of outdoor spaces. Moreso, the Coliseum’s Fan Code of Conduct asks “that fans refrain from Smoking (including vaporizers, e-cigarettes, and smokeless tobacco).”
