Drone Drops Hundreds of Bags Of Free Weed Onto City

If, for whatever reason, you were strolling through the streets of Tel Aviv this week, you might have seen a bunch of plastic packages on the ground.

But before you think it's someone being careless with their rubbish, the packages came with a fun surprise: weed.

Free cannabis buds were dropped from the skies over Rabin Square by a drone and it caused people to rush onto busy roads to get their fill.

Hundreds of packages were rounded up and The Green Drones have taken responsibility for the big stunt.


On a web messaging channel the company 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."

Two people in their 30s have been arrested over the stunt and, according to The Jerusalem Post, were 'dealt with accordingly'.

The Green Drones were trying to advertise their weed delivery service and aren't ruling out doing another mass drop of their product in the future.


The company has admitted that the coronavirus pandemic has caused them to think 'outside the box and [come] up with new ways of getting cannabis to consumers'.

They are promising a 'rain of cannabis' every week where they split split one kilogram of weed into two-gram baggies and let them fall down to the masses.

Weed is still very much illegal in Israel and only permitted in limited circumstances of medicinal purposes.

Two bills have been introduced to Israel's parliament this year, one to decriminalise weed and one to legalise it, and they've both been voted in favour. The two bills have been advanced to preliminary reading.


Interestingly, while cannabis is illegal in Israel, it appears to have been used for a really long time in the country. A recent study found that cannabis resin was found on an alter in a shrine built around 750 BCE, according to Marijuana Moment.
