A precinct of light-weight cops in Sweden are reportedly complaining that the odor coming from a large stash of marijuana stored in the department’s evidence room is giving them a contact high.
Apparently, Swedish police are not privy to the fact that in order to obtain any level of second hand buzz from cannabis it must first be set on fire, not just hang around in a closet somewhere, making the office smell like a couple of skunks just finished exchanging bodily fluids.
However, officials at the Uppsala cop shop say that ever since they stowed a substantial amount of weed in the backroom of their poorly ventilated station, officers have been complaining about headaches, nausea, and the inability to focus on their work -- yet, rumor has it that donuts have been tasting better.
In an attempt to remedy the police station of its malodourous problem, officials say they have set up air purifiers all over the station, but the strategy has simply not been enough to alleviate the pungency of the pot.
"There is an issue with an intrusive odor, but it's not a health problem," said Magnus Härnström, head of the police force that believes they have become secondhand stoners just by catching a whiff of dry weed.
Härnström did not give any indication as to what steps have been taken to ensure his police force did not continue to make bigger fools out of themselves by trying to convince the pot savvy public that somewhere in Sweden, marijuana is strong enough to get you stoned without burning it.
Perhaps he should just show them photographs of rehab facilities.
