Toronto Cops Get High … and Call the Cops

Two law enforcement officers in Toronto, Canada have found out the hard way just how potent marijuana edibles can be.

CTV reports that the duo has been suspended after ingesting marijuana edibles on duty. An investigation is underway to determine whether the edibles were stolen from a marijuana dispensary raid and, of course, whether the cops violated professional standards when they decided to get high.

So, how did they get caught? That’s the best part of all. CTV reports that the two began to “hallucinate.” One took off from the vehicle, prompting the other to call for backup.

As it turns out, their actions weren't harmless. One of the officers who responded to their call slipped on some ice and injured her head. She suffered a concussion but is said to be doing fine.
