This time 'Ganja' activists went higher with their campaign. They flew 'green drone' over Israeli city Tel Aviv and dropped small pouches full of marijuana.
It was a gift from local activists seeking to legalize marijuana. The pouches landed from the skies in Rabin Square, after a drone flew over. Unsurprisingly, the sqaure quickly filled up with people who ran onto busy roads to make sure they got their share.
הזייה בכיכר רבין: רחפן הטיל מהשמיים עשרות שקיות של מריחואנה. מי שעומד מאחורי המיזם זאת קבוצה שמכנה את עצמה "הרחפן הירוק". בגלל שלא חישבו נכון את הרוח, רוב החומר התפזר על הכביש באבן גבירול. עוברי אורח נהנו מהשלל@ynetalerts pic.twitter.com/xeziJsH950— איתי בלומנטל Itay Blumental (@ItayBlumental) September 3, 2020
Hundreds of packets were found, and the distributors took responsibility for the stunt. Speaking on an Israeli social media site, the organisation said,
It's time my dear brothers. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the green drone, handing out free cannabis from the sky… Enjoy my beloved brothers, this is your pilot brother, making sure we all get some free love.
They also indicated that the operation was part of the group's celebratory launching of a new delivery system titled "rain of cannabis." They planned to do this every week, where they will divide a kilogram of marijuana into two-gram bags and drop them all over town.
However, two people in their 30s are said to have been arrested. They said, they have been forced to think 'outside the box' and come up with new ways of getting cannabis to consumers.
Marijuana is still an illegal substance in Israel. Earlier two bills were introduced into Israel's parliament to decriminalise and legalise it. But there is no progress on those bills due to pandemic situation.
