A flying drone dropped baggies of weed onto a town square in Israel Thursday as activists said it’s high time the drug be legalized, according to a report.
Dozens of pot packets rained down from the sky in Tel Aviv — sending folks running into the street to snag them and leading to two arrests.
Two men who allegedly operated the weed-wielding quadcopter were likely affiliated with a pro-legalization group that promised unleash the gift of ganja.
“The time has come,” the group, Green Drone, said on its web messaging channel. “Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the Green Drone sending you free cannabis from the skies.”
The bags fluttered down near Rabin Square, a popular site for street protests and political rallies, and video shows passers-by hustling through street traffic to snatch them off the ground.
Police said they suspected the packets were filled with “a dangerous drug” and provided photos of what appeared to be marijuana.
Medical use of cannabis is allowed in Israel but recreational use is illegal.
