A New Brunswick Mountie who made national headlines for smoking medical marijuana while in uniform last year has been found dead. Francis's lawyer T.J. Burke said Francis died around 4 o'clock Monday afternoon. There is no word on the cause of death.
Francis was a 21-year RCMP veteran who was serving with the force's J Division in F. He was prescribed medical marijuana last November, and said at the time it helped him calm down and reduced his symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD

Sorry to hear this poor man may have taken his life but I have to agree that his job would not help is PTSD one bit.
And I am all for legalization, but I could never be for smoking on the job.
I have to agree that drinking on the job is a huge no no so the same would have to go for mary jane.
