A man briefly lit up a cannabis joint in Parliament before being nabbed by security yesterday.
The man lit the joint in the public gallery about 5.30pm during the second reading of the Resource Management (Climate Protection) Amendment Bill.
He was quickly grabbed by security and removed. There was no indication it was any sort of protest, said Parliamentary Services spokesman Warren Inkster. (…)
The matter had been handed over to police, he said.
I think lighting a joint in a building you partly fund just because you feel like getting high is the ultimate act of protest, myself.
