MAN SMOKES MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN DETENTION
OTTAWA -- Retired lawyer Rick Reimer believes he puffed his way to a
pot-smoking landmark this weekend when jail guards allowed him to legally
smoke marijuana in detention.
Mr. Reimer was arrested at a G20 protest Saturday morning and spent about
17 hours in a courthouse cell. He was allowed to keep four joints after he
showed police a letter that gives him an exemption from drug laws.
