I never smoke pot, and was never around anyone who did, so did not even inhale 2nd hand smoke. To this day, I do not know what pot smoke smells like. My wife is the same.

Caveat: I used to smoke cigarettes.

I am willing to bet heavily on your perceptiveness though NW. Even though you have never smelled it before, the first time you did, I will guarantee you would say "I smell pot!".

I am curious, but how do I go about finding out? I am not a concert goer, so perhaps I should go to some events like Seattle HempFest.

But why do I want 2nd hand pot smoke?

These photos convinced me to stay away, actually.

Play it safe and legal, and plan a weekend getaway trip to Denver, and you can find all your answers! Seriously though, smelling that stuff is not worth putting on your "bucket list". Though not the same type of smell, it has about as enjoyable aroma as an old mans fart has.

You haven't missed anything!

There's lots of thing I have never done. There's lots of things I have done. Secrets, priceless.

Long ago, I was part of a group that pretty much lived with tongue in cheek. The group was called SPERMFLOW. The Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Remembering Millard Fillmore, Last Of the Whigs. The original impetus was a discussion where we agreed that Millard Fillmore had been the most mediocre president the USA had ever seen.

We met monthly at what we considered "the most mediocre restaurant" (i.e., Waffle House) on the most mediocre avenue in that city. They were always happy to see us pile in and take over the place for a couple of hours. What a great memory!

Of course, its never too late. I'm afraid however that an attempt in that direction would result in an early termination of my most enjoyable ER. I mean after all if one acquires a harem don't you have to support them somehow? that would mean going back to work... Since that's the antitheses of ER - NO WAY JOSE!
