Samuel Mellace, who lives in Abbotsford, British Columbia, is a licensed cannabis user under the Canadian federal government's medical marijuana program, reports Meagan Fitzpatrick of Postmedia News. He started smoking a joint Monday afternoon while in the public gallery of the House of Commons as the daily question period came to an end.
Mellace said he took "seven or eight" tokes on the joint before a security guard asked him to put it out and leave the gallery, which he did without incident. Mellace later told reporters that he left the House of his own volition and "was not escorted off the property," reports CTV. Toke of the Town
