Charlie Sheen Cheats Smoking Law in Toronto

4/14/2011 9:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen just found a way to skirt Toronto's strict anti-smoking laws during his show there -- lighting up an electronic cigarette.

Shortly after Charlie hit the stage in Toronto's Massey Hall ... our spies say he bragged about not having an ashtray and said he didn't need any cigs. However, a few minutes later he sparked up one of those electronic cigarettes.

Massey Hall management told TMZ they might shut down the show if Charlie lit up on stage because they could face up to $100,000 in fines from the city.

Charlie's been smoking almost non-stop during every other stop on the tour.

We're told he did light up some real tobacco though ... in front of fans who gathered outside the theater right before the show.

By the way, so far so good ... the crowd inside is loving Sheen's act.

UPDATE 6:07PM PDT: Charlie just thumbed his nose at that letter from WB ... telling the crowd, "Negotiations with 'Two and a Half Men' are moving forward. We need to get in a room and fix this thing ... give the people what they want."

Stay tuned ...

Meant: I thought people with two criminal convictions like Charlie aren't allowed to cross the border from the USA into Canada and vice versa without some special waiver. Anyone know about that?

So in other words, CBS & WB aren't involved if Sheen is claiming they "need to get in a room and work it out." What an idiot. Abusers all think they can do whatever they want and you will forgive them cuz everybody always does if you work at it long enough - every girlfriend you hit, every woman you ridicule. All his life people have been taking him back after he f'd up. Well...maybe not this time.

Weak people smoke.

Charlie, you're weak, not funny. Weak and sad.

Please go home and clean up your life. Then come out in public.

Not that I wish him any bad luck but, I hope all his teeth fall out but one, and he gets a tooth ache in that son of a bitch. Looks like my wish has almost come true.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

He finds a way to cheat a lot of things, doesn't he? As far as his "negotiations", he's the classic case of the guy pissing on your leg while remarking about the rain.

When you have to bring in REAL talent because you can't keep the audience entertained yourself, it's time to call it quits.

Charlie might as well be the opening act.

I adore Canada and all my Canadian friends... not all are the type that would shell out insane amounts of money to see whether or not this is the night Charlie melts down. Honest!!

Give the people what they want? Umm..Charlie...anyone over the age of 12 hasn't wanted 2 and a Half Men on the air for the last EIGHT YEARS.

As for the show going well...well, I will believe that when a site desperate for page views verifies it. Sites like TMZ and radaronline have a stake in trying to make it look like people still give a damn about him. That is why they claim he did so well in Cleveland, when in fact it was largely mixed reviews with SOME people giving him a standing ovation.
