How do you get an entire town high?
By burning 3.3 tons of confiscated marijuana in the heart of a heavy populated residential area.
That’s exactly what happened when Indonesian police set fire to a massive amount of seized marijuana outside their West Jakarta office, getting nearby residents and journalists covering the event pretty damn high.
Smoke from the blaze reportedly spread form the yard to surrounding residents’ homes, causing several residents to complain of mild headaches and dizziness.
Police officials wore protective masks but neglected to alert residents and journalists of the potential of inhaling the potent smoke.
