Robert’s answer: The answer to the question, as written is no, he will not be prosecuted. There are, however, a lot of seemingly insignificant variations on that question that could result in the person being charged.

Robert’s answer: Adding to Sean's answer, it will also depend on the jurisdiction that caught you smoking pot in public. I suspect you can expect a fine being imposed but not jail.
