You're always wrong with the law. Always.
It's the world we live in, an ugly one at that. Sorry to hear about your experience.
That happens almost all the time here in Washington. We have this stupid policy designed around a "Smoke-free Washington". Any public location, parks included, are smoke free. I can't light up my hookah in public without being seen as a criminal.
