Smoke on the water? Nope.

The Coast Guard is saying that it will fine or even arrest people with cannabis onboard boats in coastal waters.

Park rangers could do the same in Acadia National Park, which is federal land.

FYI. Maine lakes are not overseen by the federal government. Therefore, possession of cannabis on a lake is legal under Maine law.

But, please, don't drive a boat while impaired.
