France | Cops Are Inadvertently Getting High Off Seized Pot Stash


Seized Marijuana In French Police Station Getting Cops High

Quote:
Cops in northern France may have a little too much contraband on their hands.

According to local reports, there is a massive amount of seized marijuana sitting in a police station in Roubaix. And the some 40 kilograms of cannabis is pungent enough that it's causing French police officers to inadvertently get high.

"Already on the ground floor it smells a bit. But on the first floor, the odor is really strong. When you go there, you clearly smell the weed. And after a day, you are stoned," an unidentified officer told 20 Minutes.

It seems the stash of seized marijuana has piled up over the last few weeks, leaving quite the lingering aroma on the lower floors of the station. As France's The Local notes, the agency charged with collecting confiscated drugs is currently on strike and has failed to make timely pick-ups.

"My colleagues are really bothered," Fabrice Danel, a representative for a police union, explained to regional newspaper La Voix du Nord. "They complain of nausea, headaches."

"Some, worried or for fun, tested themselves," he said, adding that most of the drug tests came back positive for marijuana. "It's a scandal!"

While the accidental high may give some officers a chuckle, authorities in the region don't see the situation as a laughing matter. As one judge reportedly pointed out, what if an officer had to undergo a drug test for a legitimate reason and tested positive for cannabis because of the seized marijuana?

I didn't know you could get high like that, unless the air con was acting as a kind of vaporiser

It must be close to a heater. Without heat there would be nothing to get high off of. If you could get high off cold weed, people would have been putting it in salad and on pizza for years. Right? I had always learned THC needed heat to "activate" or whatever.

Air con or a heater won't get nearly hot enough to vaporise THC, not even close. I'm assuming they haven't stuffed it in the vents or something fucking stupid of course.

Sounds to me like bullshit. Cops are taught taught a lot of bollocks about drugs, some of the encounters I've had with UK police that have smelled it on me (never been caught with any) have been absolutely epic.

lol I did the opposite and assumed they did do something stupid like stick it right next to a decrepit heating element or radiating heater or something. Keystone Cops, style. And cops do get taught a load of bollocks. I remember my friend getting questioned for a half hour because his eyes were red. Dude has never smoked in his life, but is deathly allergic to cottonwood which was falling around the whole scene like snow.

I think that's a "laughing matter"
