Galvanized steel used as walking cane

Pasadena, CA |

My old cane broke. So I went to the hardware store and got a 48" threaded steel pipe section and cut it to size then screwed on the handle. PC 22210 refers to a "leaded" cane. Have any courts interpreted "leaded" to include anything that greatly increases the weight of a cane so as to make it a weapon? I've never taken it outside due to this possibility. Thanks for anyone who has run a case search on the definition of "leaded".

    What you have is not a leaded cane which is defined as "a staff, crutch, stick, rod, pole, or similar device, unnaturally weighted with lead". Whether an overly zealous policeman might question what you have is something I cannot answer.
