    I was in a hospital waiting room last night when I witnessed a security guard (private firm) physically take a bag of cannabis from a man in the waiting room. The man argued it was his property and asked for it back but the guard refused. It was then given to hospital staff who locked it away.

    Did the guard or the hospital have the right to do this?
