Dude! How could you forget to check the law! Oh…right…

November 22, 2006

Some guys in Amsterdam had planned to roll and smoke the world’s largest joint, but they cancelled at the last minute because they realized they might be breaking the law.See, they had thought it would be legal to smoke a five-foot-long joint containing more than a pound of marijuana, if each person just brought a tiny amount and they put it all together, but that turned out not to be the case.We have now read the small print and realize there could be problems, one of the organizers was quoted as saying after consulting Dutch drugs laws.  Here’s the story: marijuana.jpg A prohibition sign prohibiting marijuana smoking in public is seen in the district of De Baarsjes in Amsterdam February 2, 2006. REUTERS/Paul Vreeker
