Morning Mail: It’s hard out there for a Blue Jays fan dressed as a marijuana leaf (video)

No one is quite sure why, but this man thought it would be a good idea to attend the Blue Jays’ home opener dressed as a leaf of marijuana. And if there was any doubt that it was wacky weed, and not, say, a maple leaf or poison ivy, all you had to do was look at the back of the costume, where it clearly read “Cannabis” in large letters. This is evidently not the image that the Blue Jays want to portray, and so the leaf was politely escorted out of the stadium.

Clearly Blue Jays personnel have had training in dealing with non-militant leaf mascots — this is Canada, after all — and I salute their sensible response to the crisis. In Philadelphia he would have been tased senseless, that is if the fans hadn’t set him on fire and smoked him before the cops could get there.

    Now, if the guy had shown up dressed as a Molson can, he would have been paraded around the stadium on peoples shoulders…

    and all I can say about the ESPN Stooges… Kruk seemed to really enjoy slapping people….

      I disagree, dressed up as a Molson can, will only lead to bad things as it is a beer from Montreal. However, dressed as a Labatt’s can, will only lead to greatness as it is also from Ontario and not the province the rest of Canada hates, Quebec.

    He looks like a big, green butterfly to me, mon.
