CN Tower Restaurant Refuses Entry to Man with Medical Marijuana

A Brantford man denied entry to Toronto’s CN Tower restaurant because he carried medical marijuana wants to take his case to the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal.

“I have a (medical marijuana) licence and I had a couple of joints with me,” Mike Knox said. “I use it for chronic pain. I explained all of that, but security still wouldn’t let me in.”

Knox said that, last Saturday, he asked CN Tower security to take his marijuana and lock it away while he, his girlfriend, Courtney Childs, and her two-year-old son visited the restaurant.

“I was told they couldn’t do that, so there wasn’t anything else I could do. We came in by train, so it wasn’t as if I could go lock it in a car,” Knox said.
