York Prof Fights to Smoke Pot on Campus

October 20, 2006

York University professor Brian MacLean says he has clearance from Health Canada for medical marijuana use for an undisclosed illness, but there is no place at work where he can smoke it. Until his medical need is accommodated, MacLean is refusing to step onto campus and is holding all of his classes on policing elsewhere. MacLean says that the University of Toronto has created a ventilated room for a professor who smokes medical marijuana and wants York to do the same. CBC item
