DENVER — A Colorado marijuana activist who organized joint giveaways and has pushed the bounds of the state's new pot laws was arrested this week for smoking pot in public.

The Denver Post reports that Robert Corry was cited Wednesday for smoking at Coors Field during a Colorado Rockies game (http://bit.ly/189TcUg ).

According to a police report, an officer asked Corry to hand over the joint, and Corry refused.

Corry is among the most prominent marijuana attorneys in the state. He has also earned a reputation for testing the bounds of the law, handing out free joints in Denver and Boulder. The handouts were protests of proposed tax rates on the drug.

Public consumption of marijuana in Colorado is punishable by a $100 fine or up to 15 days in jail.
