BC Ferries claps back after pot activist Jodie Emery smokes on deck

Jul 11 2019, 1:18 am

BC Ferries is reminding passengers that they are not allowed to get “high on the high seas” while aboard their ships.

This comes after cannabis activist Jodie Emery posted a picture of herself smoking a joint on a BC Ferries vessel on social media earlier this week.

“Smoke on the water…high on the high seas! It’s a west coast tradition out here in BC,” she wrote.

It seems that Emery forgot that BC Ferries officially banned smoking anywhere on its vessels last year.

When one Twitter user commented on Emery’s picture asking if ferries were smoke-free, BC Ferries was quick to remind Emery — and all passengers — that they need to butt out.

“Hi there, we offer a smoke-free environment onboard all vessels and at all terminals. If you see someone smoking onboard, please speak with a crew member for the most immediate assistance,” wrote BC Ferries, in its response.

Other Twitter users also seemed unimpressed with Emery’s partaking in a “west coast tradition” on a BC Ferries ship.








Looks like Emery became the butt of the joke.
