Cigarettes are now weapons in Canada????
Standing on a staircase inside the front door early Friday morning, Dorian Kennedy saw the red beam of a tactical team cop’s gun squarely on his chest shortly after midnight Friday while the heavily armed officers were at a fourplex to respond to a call about a firearm seen nearby.

"It's a lit cigarette. He can use it as a weapon, either burning the officer or poking him in the eye with it -- anything," Chornley said of any potential suspect who is smoking while cops close in.
