Montreal "Kids" Spotted Smoking Weed On The Metro

There's a time and a place, and this is NOT it.
Montreal "Kids" Spotted Smoking Weed On The Metro

This public spotting provided by one of our readers points out the holes that the STM is trying to fix with their campaign against nuisance behaviour

Now I'm not the most responsible adult in the world, in fact, sometimes I get pretty immature - we all have our moments. But every once in a while I see things that are plain disrespectful to everyone, breaking our unspoken universal agreement to keep the peace in our day-to-day lives.

Like these people right here. They might be young adults, but right for this article let's just refer to them as children. Because that's what they're acting like, a couple of children, unaware of the courtesy rule that is supposed to lie in our subconscious to mediate our actions. These kids figured it was a great idea to show just how cool they are by sparking a joint in the middle of the metro.

You can smoke weed all you want, but not when you're trapped in a tiny room with other people. I mean seriously, don't pick a place where others can't leave if they're bothered by the smoke. They can't even open a freakin' window. Common courtesy guys, come on.

Public service is the name of the game. If you want to help bring things to the public to find solutions, like how we can report smoking in real-time while in the metro, send us your photos. Look at your city.
