A bold move was caught on camera when a man sitting in a Multnomah County courthouse started casually smoking marijuana.
Deputies told FOX 12 the man lit his joint and sat down in the back row of the courtroom.
Officials told the man he couldn't smoke in courthouse, and when deputies got closer they smelled the tell-tale scent of marijuana.
When the man was told to leave he asked 'why?' Deputies informed him that he's not allowed to smoke marijuana in public, let alone in a courthouse.
The man eventually cooperated with deputies and tamped-out the joint in a nearby trash can.
Deputies say the whole courtroom smelled like marijuana even after he left.
