Man posts video taken during confrontation with Ferries employee.
A licensed medical marijuana user is outraged after he was told he could not smoke pot on a BC Ferry.
The video was posted on Facebook by a Ucluelet man.
He says he was confronted while smoking pot on the 5:20 sailing from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo yesterday.
He claims he displayed a medical marijuana licence and was standing outside in a designated smoking area and he should have been allowed to light up.
B.C. Ferries released a statement today.
It says “regardless of whether a person can produce a Health Canada card, B.C. Ferries does not allow the use of marijuana onboard vessels or anywhere on our property (same as the consumption of alcohol). ”
