10. I have seen it a couple of times - and I live in Canada!!!
My nephew decided to roll a joint behind his work and got caught by the OPP. He was a first-offender, but because his work was right across the street from a local high school, he was charged, arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced to six months for TRAFFICKING, rather than simple possession.

Cops in Ontario are, by and large, MAJOR assholes.
