This Cop Trying Not To Giggle About Weed Is Honestly Just So Good

"Am I allowed to go and grip a 20 sack now?"

Posted on

A false report of armed hostage takers at a cannabis dispensary in downtown Toronto created chaos on Thursday, but it also created this most excellent interaction.

Cop: It's safe. There's no one with a gun at the dispensary Dude: So can I buy pot now? Cop: *barely holds in laugh… https://t.co/xDRSxuDcXe

Cop: It seems that it is empty in there, there is no person with a gun, there’s no one in the business at all, so everything is safe right now as far as we can see.

Pot-seeking man: Am I allowed to go and grip a 20 sack now?

Cop: *unsuccessfully stifles giggle* Anything else?

Legendary.

You can see the police officer trying, so hard, not to acknowledge it.

And failing.

To be clear, pot is not actually legal in Canada yet. Dispensaries operate in a very grey area and are often raided by Toronto police.
