A trio of Harlem weed wackers beat and stabbed a man for smoking marijuana in public, police said Tuesday.
The 32-year-old victim was smoking a joint on Broadway near W. 151st St. on Nov. 9 around 3:10 p.m. when three men stormed up and ordered him to take off, cops said.
A fight ensued with the trio punching and stabbing the victim in the hand, arm and leg before running off, police said.
Medics took the smoker to Harlem Hospital where he was treated and released.
The victim, who has a lengthy record of drug offenses, is known for regularly smoking weed on the block, a police source said.
His three attackers are between 20 and 30 years old. They are still being sought.
